Edgar H. Semprini III of Centerville, who leaves family in Sandwich, died April 7 after a battle with COVID-19. He was 75.

He was the husband of Sue (Holmes) Semprini for 57 years. He met the woman he would later marry when he moved from Allentown, Pennsylvania, and became her 1st grade classmate at Hyannis Elementary School.

After attending Barnstable High School and Marianapolis Preparatory School in Thompson, Connecticut, he began his working career.

Mr. Semprini, who was known as Ned, spent 25 years at the Barnstable County House of Corrections, eventually becoming a captain. He served as a role model and mentor to many of the younger officers before he retired in 2002. During his retirement, he took a position as a security guard at Cape Cod Hospital.

A grandfather of seven boys, he enjoyed spending time at Barnstable Little League Field and the local hockey rinks cheering on his grandsons.

In addition to his wife, he leaves his brother, Ron Semprini of Sandwich; and his two sons and daughter and their families of San Marcos, California, West Yarmouth, Savannah, Georgia, and Centerville.

A celebration of his life will be at a later date.
