CORNVILLE - Edward John Agin, 77, of Cornville passed away unexpectedly, Saturday, Oct. 6, 2018 in Athens, Maine.

He was born Sept. 14, 1941 in Central Falls, R.I., the son of Edward and Mary (Walek) Agin. He graduated from East Greenwich High School in Rhode Island.

Edward married Elizabeth Bacon on Jan. 25, 1969 in Granville, New York.

He started his career, shell fishing, when he was 12 and never stopped until he was 70 years young. This led to his deep love of the outdoors. When Narragansett Bay was in jeopardy, he stepped in to serve as president of the Rhode Island Shell Fisherman's Association, a position which he served for five years. He also worked for Nabisco for 10 years.

He was an avid hunter and outdoors man. He loved to feed the deer, in fact, his dying act was the pursuit of apples for them. Fall held the double pleasure of also being football season. He was a dedicated Patriot's fan, and Sunday afternoons were "off limits", unless it was game talk.

Ed once received an award for an act of heroism when he pulled a neighbor from a burning building. He was a kind and caring person, who gave generously of himself. Ed will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

Edward is survived by his wife, Elizabeth (Bacon), who he married on Jan. 25, 1969, of Cornville. He also leaves his three daughters, Dolores Gagnon and her husband, Roland, of Cornville, Ann Stedman of Vero Beach, Fla., Mary King of Port Lucie, Fla.; two stepchildren, Barbara Gordon and Robert Esty both of Rhode Island; his sister, Valerie Harrison of Bristol, R.I.; nine grandchildren, Philip, Catherine, Shawn, Lindsey, Luke, Desiree, Keith, Benjamin, and Jacob; as well as four great-grandchildren, Viviana, Anthony, Hazel and Lily and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents, one son Matthew Agin, and Matt's son Joshua.

Visiting hours will be held on Saturday Oct. 13, 2018 from 2-4 p.m. at the Smart & Edwards Funeral Home, 183 Madison Ave., Skowhegan, Maine.
