Edward Caron

Edward Caron passed away peacefully on May 27, 2018.

Ed graduated from Biddeford High School in 1963 and later graduated from both Lyndon State College and Suffolk Law School. While in law school, he proudly served in Vietnam for two years. After returning home to Biddeford, he followed in his father’s footsteps to practice law. As an attorney, Ed helped the people of his community for over 36 years. During this time, he served as clerk of York County Superior Court, House Representative in the Maine Legislature, city solicitor for both Biddeford and Saco, and as a member of various community boards. One of his proudest achievements was helping to reopen West Brook Skating Rink, so that the children of Biddeford would be able to experience skating as he did in his youth.

Ed was an avid fisherman, traveler and lover of life. As a fisherman, he sealed the deal by winning the Bailey Island Tuna Tournament in 1989. As a traveler, he captained boats throughout the Virgin Islands, toured Egypt by camel, and traveled throughout Europe, with his wife Debbie always by his side. As a lover of life, many friends may or may not remember the many lobster bakes and parties down at the camp, and cruising down the river on the Instigator, the Rebel III and Running Bare.

After retiring to Florida, Ed continued to serve the people and joined the local DAV Chapter 123. As Junior Vice Commander, he helped veterans receive benefits they deserved and quickly became known as one of the most knowledgeable officers on veteran’s affairs.

He is predeceased by his father Edward Caron Sr., mother Elizabeth (Betty) Caron, and his brothers Ron and Rick Caron.

He is survived by his loving wife Debbie Caron of Merritt Island, Florida, his son Justin Caron of Merritt Island, Florida, his daughter Mary Guillerault of Saco, grandsons: Eric, Jean-Philippe, Antonie, and Mathieu of Saco, and nephew Ronald Caron Jr. of Boise, Idaho.

Ed will be buried at Cape Canaveral National Cemetery. A celebration of life will be held for friends and family at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the, Space Coast Chapter DAV 123, 400 S Sykes Creek Parkway, Merritt Island, FL 32952.
