BRUNSWICK - Edward Ward, 94, passed peacefully in his home, surrounded by his loving family on Monday, Dec. 10, 2018. Born June 20, 1924, in Fall River, Mass., to John and Bertha Turner Ward, Ed was one of eight children.

He attended Durfee High School before bravely volunteering to serve his country in WWII with the US Army, where he earned a Purple Heart. He was a member of the American Leigon Post 21 in Bath. He married the love of his life, Anna Whipp in Fall River, Mass., on July 26, 1947. They enjoyed nearly six decades of marriage before her passing in 2005.

After his proud military service to our country, Mr. Ward was employed with Montaup Electric Company in Somerset, Mass., for over 45 years, retiring as the Foreman to the Mechanical Maintenance Crew. In his retirement, Ed was a tireless volunteer to local support services at Mid Coast Hospital, People Plus, and the Midcoast Hunger Prevention Program.

Ever the good neighbor, Ed was always willing to donate his time and talent to the minor repairs and quality-of-life home improvements of his friends in the community.

He is survived by two daughters, Carol (Dan) Garneau of Yarmouth, Gail Ward (Susan O'Quinn) of Brunswick; four sons, Edward Ward of Tiverton, RI, John (Kathy) Wad of Merrimac, Mass., Steven Ward of Davie, Fla., Paul (Rhonda) of Bismarck, N.D.; ten grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.
