Of Delran NJ. Not a misprint: Yeah, that really was his name. Ed was a hard working guy who you had to love. He liked Dale Earnhardt (Sr. and Jr.) and, like all real men, just about every other driver with the exception of Jeff Gordon. He’d turn off the Super Bowl to watch reruns of last season’s races. Ed was a dog freak; though he loved all dogs he had a special place in his heart for his poodle, Chester the Molester, and his Lab Rottweiler mix, Damien; Damien was generally considered to be the Devil’s spawn. He liked Monday Night wrestling but tempered it with the occasional chick flick. Some said that Ed was set in his ways, others called him stubborn. He was meticulous about his home and liked his grass cut just so. Ed figured that if you put bleach in with colors and burn dinner pretty consistently, you’ll never be asked to do that kind of thing again. He was a project manager for the ABM company.
His earlier job of running the food concessions at a bar in Philadelphia earned him more than a paycheck. It’s there that he would meet his wife, Donna. He was the not so strict father of David Edwards, Jamie Croce, Shae Edwards, Edward Schubert and Christina Miller; he spent much of his recent years taking his 11 grandchildren (David Jr. , Olivia , Katie , Haley , Hollyn , Alison , Johnny, Caden , Ava , Brandon, Blake , and little Brooke) to Disney, the beach, bowling and just about anywhere fun. He is survived by his siblings, Scott D. Edwards of Winterstown, Pa and Patricia A. (Edwards) Lehr and husband Glenn A. of Jacobus, Pa. and a Nephew, Paul A. (Tony) Edwards and wife Nicole of Mt. Wolf, Pa and a niece, Erica D. Edwards and her son Holden, of Red Lion, Pa.
Born February 9, 1947 in York, Pa. A son of the late Paul D and Hilda E (Crum) Edwards of Jacobus, Pa. He graduated in 1965 from Dallastown Area High School in Dallastown.
