Edward Edwards

(1947 - 2015)

Edward Edwards

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.

    Dear family of Edward Edwards:

    I was sorry to read in the paper that you lost your husband and father in death. Losing a loved one in death is one of the hardest things that any of us will ever deal with. I’m sure he will be missed by all including his two dogs.I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and wanted to share my condolences. I would like to share a Bible thought that is found at Revelation chapter 21 and verses 3 and 4 where it says: “With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them.And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more,neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” This scripture makes it very clear that God does not want us to grow old, sick and die because he promises to wipe out those very things as you can see in those verses. God’s purpose is to restore the dead to life by means of a resurrection to a paradise earth, where sickness and death will be no more. You have the hope to see your dear husband and father, in God’s new world where he will be in perfect health. I hope this brief Bible message has brought you a measure of comfort in this difficult time.
