Biographical history

Vernon Bagley was born in Seal Cove, Grand Manan, Charlotte County, in 1916, the son of Robert and Leone (Greene) Bagley. Vernon completed grade 9 at Seal Cove School and then worked with his father as a fisherman between Seal Cove and Wood Island. In 1945, Vernon married Florence Wilson of Seal Cove, and they had a son, Colin, who made his home in Grand Harbour with his wife, Mary (Gaskill) Bagley, and their son, Stewart.

In February 1963, Vernon rescued Floyd Jones off of the coast of Grand Manan, near Southern Head, receiving the Carnegie Silver Medal for his actions. Following his retirement from fishing and hunting, Vernon worked for 21 years as a provincial game warden. He retired a second time, in 1981, at age 65.
