Edgar Hussey, Jr. Obituary

Edgar G Hussey, Jr. (71) of South Berwick, Maine died peacefully on March 15 surrounded by his loving family. Edgar was born on October 8, 1952 to Edgar G. Hussey, Sr. and Betty Lee (Trafton) Hussey. He graduated from Marshwood High School in 1971  and shortly thereafter began a long career in industrial sales. While Edgar enjoyed the competitive nature of pursuing and closing the deal in his chosen career, his true passion was farming.  He was happiest on the seat of a tractor mowing hay or standing beside his Simmental cattle simply watching them chew. His natural competitive nature carried over into his love of showing his beef cattle which was most evident at Fryeburg Fair where he exhibited for over 20 years, bringing home many ribbons and more importantly, memories. Edgar served on the Board of the Maine Beef Producers and New England Simmental Association and was especially proud of helping organize and promote beef cattle to the youth in New England through the development of the Maine Beef Expo at Fryeburg Fair and as an independent 4-H advisor to youth in York County.

Edgar retired from farming in 2010 and rekindled his love for boating and fishing while living on the shores of Bauneg Beg Pond and later summering on Damariscotta Lake. Winter months in Florida introduced him to the game of pickleball and a whole community of good friends both in Florida and Maine.

Edgar’s greatest joy was his family, whether it was popping in for a quick visit (and to raid the pantry) or spending the weekend cooking out, playing corn hole and a great game of cribbage. 

Edgar is survived by his wife, Sally, daughters, Megan Hobson (Eric) of North Berwick, Melinda Main of South Berwick and Megan Beal of Berwick and four amazing grandchildren, Hailey Messier, Liam Main, Peyton Main and Emma Simmoneau. He is also survived by his siblings, Dennis Hussey, Judy Moses, Jane Hall and Ann Lee Hussey and many extended Hussey family members.
