Homer resident Edward Edson Schofield died Monday, Oct. 27, 2003, at the home of his friend, Michael LeMay, after a 12-year experience of cancer. He was 62.
A celebration of life service will be held at 3 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 29, at the Good Karma Inn in Homer. His ashes will be scattered at the Rocky River Cabin, 10 miles out of Jakolof Bay in the spring of 2004.
Mr. Schofield was born Jan. 1, 1941, in Brighton, Mass. He was a self-taught builder and stone mason. He moved to Homer in 1981.
Mr. Schofield enjoyed fly fishing and wilderness experiences. Many beautiful homes, both in New Hampshire and Alaska, were built by him and are evidence of his highly skilled craftsmanship.
"Ed Schofield was a teacher and friend to many people who loved him dearly. He was known for his generosity, kindness and dry New England wit. He will be remembered for his pioneer spirit and ability to live free," his wife said.
Mr. Schofield is survived by his wife, Norma Lia Schofield of Homer; daughters, Wendy, Lynn and Debbie Schofield of Boston; and a sister, Anne Schofield of Porter, Maine.
Arrangements were made by Homer Funeral Home.
