TOPSHAM — Edwin Fenimore, 82, died Sept. 5 at Coastal Manor in Yarmouth.
Born on Sept. 30, 1926, in Saddle River, N.J., he was a son of Matthew and Mary (Seeberger) Fenimore.
As a child, he and his family moved to Maine where they started a family farm in Topsham.

His interests included World War II history, watching football and baseball, and strumming his guitar in the evening.
He was a quiet man who loved his family and friends greatly.
