Edward Raymond Theroux, 83, passed away on Friday, May 20, 2022, surrounded by loved ones after battling health conditions. Edward or Eddy (which he was fondly called) was born in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, on July 27, 1938. He was the son of the late Edward T. Theroux and Fanalienne (Lillian) A. (Savoie) Theroux, and the father of the late Scott E. Theroux. He is survived by his beloved wife, Deanna M. Theroux, his sister Janette (Theroux) Groves, his children Wendy A. (Theroux) Barnes, Gail M. (Theroux) Marshall, Todd M. Theroux, and Chet A. Theroux, and stepdaughters Debra A Nadeau and Donna M. Apicella. He will fondly be remembered by his 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
After Eddy graduated from Pawtucket High School in 1958, he went on to study engineering at Mitchell College. He also attended Truck Driving School at North American Van Lines. Throughout his life, he worked at Electric Boat, ran his company Industrial Floor Cleaning, and was a truck driver. In 1990, Eddy met Deanna at Key Boston. Eddy and Deanna blended their families of seven children when they married on November 26, 1994. Eddy was previously married to Carol A. Martineau. Eddy and Deanna relocated to Florida in 1995. After retiring, he pursued his hobbies such as billiards, cards, and dominos (which he may have cheated at). His lifelong dream to teach art was fulfilled when he taught classes at Michaels Crafts, Jo-Ann Fabrics, and Spruce Creek Community Center.
