What a blessing it was to move next door to Edwin, Chris & Maranda all those years ago. Could not ask for a better neighbor but also became a dear friend. Edwin was Jerome’s buddy, they’d talk mainly in their fav spot on the fence while joking, teasing Chester, so many memories of laughter. Our grands called him Mr. Eggy as toddlers & even after they grew up, he was dear to them too. Our deepest condolences to Chris, Maranda, Linda & family.

Ed farmed the land next to me for years on Coulbourn Mill road. A kind man who loved to farm. We had many conversations over the fence sharing farming knowledge and stories about his family. I missed him when he no longer leased his land, but did see him here and there around town. My heart felt wishes go out to his family.

My brother Ken and I loved it when mom and dad took us to cousin Linda and Edwin‘s house when we were kids. Edwin taught me to play Chopsticks on the piano! He was a very happy and friendly guy, who always took the time with his younger cousins. We saw the rabbits and the chickens and had such a great time. Edwin was the kindest person and will be remembered always.

So sorry for the family on the passing of Edwin. I’ve known Edwin as far back as I can remember as we grew up on neighboring farms. Edwin always had a smile on his face and an infectious laugh at the end of every sentence. Edwin came by his friendliness and good nature honestly as both his father and mother were kindhearted souls with nary a cross word about anyone. I remember when I was 5 or 6 that my older brother came home with a bicycle for me that had once belonged to Edwin. At some point while helping the Kings pick watermelons, my brother struck up a deal with Edwin for the bicycle. After that, any time I saw him, he would inquire how I was making out learning to ride it.
I can honestly say that with his personality, his smile, his infectious laugh, and his desire to help others, the world could certainly use a lot more Edwins! May the peace of God abide with his family in their time of grief.

I'm so sorry to hear about Mr. King. I have many fond memories of him in the field behind mom and dads house. They were very fond of both of you and if mom were here she would be very sorry to hear of this. Please accept my condolences on behalf of the Alexander family. So sorry for your loss and we will pray for comfort in this very difficult time.

I have so many fond memories of Edwin. As cousins, we visited often as children, and Edwin always patiently took the time to play games with us and keep us occupied so our parents could talk. I loved talking to him. He was such a kind and caring person and I was glad that he was my cousin. I looked forward to our visits. He just always had so much patience with us.
