Edgar and June shared a love for travel and camping trips with their three young children, as well as trips to Europe over the years.

In retirement, his enthusiasm for railroads and trolleys led him to volunteer at the Seashore Trolley Museum in Kennebunkport, ME.
Edgar lived his life with a generous spirit, love of family, and pride in his Swedish-Finnish heritage. His devotion to family was exemplified in the care he took of June during her struggle with Alzheimer’s.
