CAPLAN, Edward M, 78, of Swampscott, entered eternal rest on Friday, October 11th. Devoted husband of Diana (Germain). Beloved father of Andrew and his wife Melissa Caplan and David & his wife Ana Caplan. Adored grandfather of Lila and Louisa Caplan. Son of Abraham and Freida Caplan and dear brother of Erwin Caplan of blessed memory.

Ed was a controller for Polaroid, a member of the Polaroid Retiree Association, and Past President of Temple Beth El (now Congregation Shirat Hayam, Swampscott).

Ed met his true love on Fisherman’s Beach in Swampscott, Diana’s hometown, and they were inseparable for the next 57 years. They enjoyed everything together from taking long bike rides, hosting family meals, serving their synagogue, to traveling together. He was a wonderful father who always supported his sons while giving them the freedom to grow. He loved the time he spent with his granddaughters and cherished every moment with them, including graduation ceremonies, sporting events, violin and dance recitals, vacations, just spending time together . . . even Disney movies.

Condolence calls may be made at his late residence following the interment until 4:30PM. In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made to Congregation Shirat Hayam, Swampscott, or the Alzheimer’s Association
