Edgar Nickerson Walls

Seal Harbor

Edgar Nickerson Walls, 90, died July 11, 2021, at his home surrounded by family. He was born May 30, 1931, in West Tremont, the son of Milton and Zulma (Wentworth) Walls.

Edgar served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War stationed in France and Germany. He recalled his service time with fond memories. Edgar married his beloved wife, Nancy Lou Leland, on Oct. 3, 1954. He was a carpenter by trade and his work can be found scattered on the island he loved. From a simple bench to an elaborate home, he made his mark. Edgar enjoyed fishing and traveling with friends. He continued to build furniture for his family and friends after he retired. Edgar was a member of the Masonic Lodge No. 208 A.F. & A.M., the American Legion Post No. 103, both of Northeast Harbor, and the Seal Harbor Old Timers Club.
