Naples - Edgar I. Vatcher of Naples passed away peacefully on November 25, 2019 after a brief illness. Born in Providence, RI to Edgar and Mary Vatcher, he was a resident of Marco Island and Naples for the past 30 years. Edgar was a four-year veteran of the US Air Force during the Korean Conflict, later graduating with highest honors from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in Industrial Management. He was a plant manager with Corning Inc. during his 34 year career. Survivors include his beloved wife of 67 years, Barbara (Smith) Vatcher, sons John (Ellen) of Shoreline, WA, Stephen (Virginia) of Kennebunk, ME, Robert (Erin) of Little Compton, RI; Grandchildren Jack, Teddy, Annie, and Charlotte of Kennebunk, ME; sister Ruth McCarthy of Somerset, MA, James of Las Vegas, NV, and Jack of Seekonk, MA. He was active in civic and community affairs throughout his life, as well as in the Episcopal Church as a vestry person and Stephen minister. An outdoor enthusiast, he loved fishing and upland hunting, as well as sailing, gardening, reading and reciting poetry. He was proud of his Newfoundland heritage, and enjoyed spending summers in Little Compton, RI for many years.

"Here he lies where he long'd to be;

Home is the sailor, home from the sea,

And the hunter, home from the hill."

Robert Louis Stevenson

So sorry to hear of Ed's passing. I met Ed in 2001 when he was in St. John's, Newfoundland. He was my father's cousin. I enjoyed hearing his stories and all the information about our ancestors. He will definitely be missed. I know how much family meant to him. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I worked with Ed at Corning Glass in the late 1970's. He was a great manufacturing manager, and I'm sorry to learn of his passing. My condolences to his family.
