Edward J.'s Story
Edward J. D'Urso, of Manchester, N.H., passed away peacefully while surrounded by his family on June 6, 2017, after a long battle with heart failure.
Born in 1944 in Brooklyn, N.Y. to Edward and Lillian D'Urso, the family later moved to Lawrence.
A graduate of Northeastern University, Edward continually challenged himself in a variety of industries including finance, construction, and recruitment. Edward lived with his family in Methuen before becoming a 20-year resident of Hooksett, N.H.
As a loving husband and father, Ed will be remembered most for his vivacious charm. He was always willing to help family and community members with construction projects. Ed loved his Boston sports teams and was an accomplished dart player. He was also a terrific cook who enjoyed preparing delicious meals while hosting holiday gatherings and family celebrations.
Edward is survived by his wife, Beatrice Slavin of Manchester; daughter, Jenifer D'Urso of Hooksett; five step-children, Ben Slavin of Cupertino, Calif., Rebecca Trotta (Slavin) of Manchester, Abigail Slavin of Manchester, Molly Slavin of Las Vegas, Hannah Paterson (Slavin) of Portsmouth; as well as one granddaughter; brother, Tom D'Urso of Las Vegas; godmother, Josephine Benigno of Methuen; and many in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother, Steve D'Urso of Boxborough, Mass.
Calling hours are 4 to 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 18, at Lambert Funeral Home & Crematory, 1799 Elm St., corner of North Street, Manchester, N.H. A Memorial Service will begin promptly at 6 p.m. in the funeral home.
