In Memory of

Edgar (Ted) Boston



Ted Boston

The Boston family is sad to announce the passing of Ted, on January 16, 2021, at the age of 81. Ted is survived by his loving wife Eugenia, brothers Bill (Eilish) and Terry (Diane), sister-in-law Lidia (Allan), his children Jennifer, Paul and Melissa, his step-children Larissa (Peter), and Andrew (Patricia), his nephews Sean (Sonia), Kevin (Cheryl), Brian (Heather) and Adam (Nicole), his niece and God-daughter Sarah (Zack), his many great-nephews and great-nieces, and grandchildren.

Ted spent most of his career as an elementary school teacher at Humbercrest Public School (Toronto District School Board) and as principal of continuing education with the former City of York Board of Education. As a teacher, Ted was known as “Mr. B”, who enjoyed teaching Physical Education. He will always be remembered as a kind person, with a great sense of humour, who always found time to help a student or fellow colleague.

Cremation has taken place. The family is planning a Memorial Service in the future, once we are allowed to safely gather again.

Arrangements entrusted to Turner & Porter – Peel Chapel. Please click here to view Mr. Boston’s Memorial on the Turner & Porter website.

For those who wish, donations may be made to the Alzheimer Society of Peel or to the Sick Kids Foundation.

    I first met Ted at St. Paul’s School. Shortly after the new school was built, he came into the office and introduced himself. We had great chats and I always appreciated his very positive perspective. A true gentleman with a passion for education. Extending deepest sympathy, love and prayers to Eugina and family.

Please share your tribute ...
