Obituary for Harold "Edmund" Wilcox

Georgia – Harold Edmund Wilcox, a lifelong area resident passed away Friday, March 22, 2019, at the UVM Medical Center with his family by his side.

Edmund was born at home in Georgia on March 12, 1927, the son of the late Roy E. and Elizabeth (Morton) Wilcox. Edmund was 92 years old.

Edmund was a 1944 graduate of Bellows Free Academy and then spent 53 years running the family dairy farm on Georgia Shore. He was a member of the Vermont Old Cemetery Association, Green Mountain Folklore Society, Saint Albans Writers Workshop and was a 60-year member of the Georgia Banner Grange 7th Degree. He also volunteered in various positions at the Georgia Elementary and Middle School. When he wasn’t farming, he enjoyed spending time touring New England. Edmund had a love of music and was known to burst into song at a moments notice. He would share this love with shut ins and local nursing home residents.

Edmund had a great love for the Town of Georgia, serving as a Town Lister for 10 years, Director of the Georgia School Board for 4 years, Georgia Historical Society and served on the Georgia Conservation Commission and numerous other committees. Edmund was also a major contributor/writer to the Georgia Town History series. In 2010, he received the Georgia Historical Society Volunteer for the Year Award and in 2015, received “20 plus years of Outstanding Dedication and Service to the Town of Georgia” award from the Conservation Commission. He ended his autobiography with: “Georgia has always been, and is, a great place to reside. I hope and pray that it remains that way for the future generations.”

He is survived by his sister, Shirley Grimm of Boise, Idaho; his nephew, Fred Grimm and his wife, Heather, and their children, Keith, Sarah and Logan all of Georgia and his nieces, Gretchen Grimm of Georgia and Becky White and her husband, Jim, and their children, Mathew and Anna all of Boise, Idaho and his cousin, Sally Mayes of Georgia.
