Known as “Uncle Bob” to 11 nieces and nephews, 15 grand nieces and nephews, and 6 great grand nieces and nephews, Robert was all about family.
Little brother Walter Edwards (“Uncle Ed”, partner in his Litchfield Subway business) and little sister Dixie Lee (“Red”) Zander visited Bob and daughter Kelly Barron on a trip to Henderson, Nevada in November, 2018, and were so grateful for those moments with him.
He was preceded in death not only his loving daughter Kim, but also by his parents John and Mildred Edwards, sister Virginia (“Ginny”) Knisley, and sister-in-law Pamela (“Aunt Pam”) Edwards.
We will all keep him in our memories until we meet him again.

As Uncle Bob's niece, I spent a lot of time with him through out the years. Whether we were just talking or on one of our casino trips, he was always very kind and generous. I will miss him and will always have fond memories.

We worked with Subway Bob for several years as his accountants. I was a young CPA and he was one of my first clients. I have such fond memories of him. He was so kind. I'm sorry for your loss.
