Edward Roy Edwards
Edward Roy Edwards, 77, of Upper Gagetown, NB left us on September 16, 2019.
His passing occurred at the Dr. Everett Chalmers Regional Hospital, following a valiant fight against 'our Superman's' kryptonite, cancer.
Ed, a proud, dedicated and long-time member (1962–1993) of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, retired as Staff Sergeant, dedicating his total tenure to New Brunswick ('J'-Division).
Born to Edward Roy and Eva May Edwards (Leblanc) on April 4, 1942, in Halifax, NS, and later marrying his lovely Karen Ann Edwards (Fullerton) on September 24, 1966 (Sackville, NB). Together they created 53 wonderful years of memories and three equally wonderful children.
He leaves as his legacy: daughter, Susan Winnifred Edwards , grandson, Kaden Edward Bulger and son-in-law, David Michael Vokey; son, Ralph Bruce Edwards and grandson, Jacob Edward Yves Cote/Edwards; son, Christopher Roy Edwards, granddaughter, Kailey Ann Edwards and daughter-in-law, Shelley Edwards. He also leaves to cherish his memory, five beloved siblings: Pearl (and Charlie) Williams; Harold – pre-deceased (and Debbie/Eva) Edwards; Marilyn (and George) Campbell; Shirley (and Ed) Patterson; Bob (and Lillian) Edwards; and, many loved nieces and nephews.
Ed will be remembered by all as a fair and honest man; a leader; a pillar of strength, knowledge and wisdom; a lover of nature and the four seasons of adventure it provided him; a passionate man in every aspect of his life; and, the stoic flagpole supporting the flags of his family.
Honoring his wishes, an official service will not be held. Family and friends will gather at his 'piece of paradise' in the days to come to celebrate his life and share memories made.
