Our founder, colleague, and friend, Ed Kfoury, passed away early on Wednesday, May 18, at his winter home on Sanibel Island, Florida.
Ed was a force of nature. He was a powerful advocate and agent for conservation in the Rangeley Region and across the State of Maine, founding the Rangeley Lakes Heritage Trust in 1991 with friends who understood the urgency of conserving the Rangeley Region. His passion, tenacity, and ability to connect with and motivate people helped launch Maine’s current era of conservation. He was active and engaging till the very end.
Each of us is unique and irreplaceable, but clearly, we will never see his like again. Together, we can do our best to build upon the foundation he laid.
