Brother of Eric Forsyth and wife Connie Forsyth of Marshfield, James Forsyth of Quincy, and Harding Forsyth of Tampa, FL.

Ed’s love for the ocean started with his father, who built the beloved wooden boat, Valhalla. On this boat, the family spent summers traveling up and down the New England seacoast. Ed served his country in the United States Coast Guard, where his knowledge and love of the ocean, as well as skills in boat handling, thrived. He was a lifelong member of Milton Yacht Club, and member of Old Colony Yacht Club, where he met everyone with a warm smile, helpful demeanor, and cold beer. Ed was truly loved by all.
