Guilford – Rodney L. Edgerly, 84, passed away peacefully, with the love of his life and family by his side, August 12, 2020, at his home. Rod was born October 22, 1935, in Sangerville, son of the late Lloyd F. and Marion P. (Clark) Edgerly.
Rod graduated in 1954 from PCHS and married his high school sweetheart, Beverly (Tripp), on September 25, 1955.

Rod was a Staff Sergeant with the Air National Guard, a member of the Big Pine Gun Club, belonged to the Mt. Kineo Lodge #109, and Friends of Community Fitness. After his retirement, Rod enjoyed going to Florida in the winter for 20 years, working the flea markets, selling on EBay, buying and selling at yard sales, hunting, and fishing. He was known by many for being the “Snickers” man; everywhere he went he gave people a Snickers bar. He was a very thoughtful and giving man.
