Lawrence Ronald Edwards, Jr. "Ron"
Canandaigua: Passed gently away on Saturday, December 21, 2019. He was predeceased by his parents Lawrence Ronald Edwards, Sr., and Grace "Hoose" Edwards; stepmother, Elva Edwards; sister Natalie Hackett; wife, Patricia Bailey Edwards and companion Shirley Wells. He is survived by his daughters, Charlene Edwards and Sandy Edwards LaFleur; siblings, Verna Cornish, Larry Edwards and Hoddy Edwards; extended family and special friends Brian (Erica) Wells, their son Kenneth and daughter Gabby Wells who Ron adored.
Ron was a 1950 graduate of Island Falls High School in Island Falls, Maine. He served his country through the United States Army from 1950-1953. He went to work for North Electric Company and traveled the country with his family until his retirement. He was trained in electronics, but was a "jack of all trades" because he grew up on a farm where you had to learn how to do your own repairs. Ron was active as a Freemason, a lifelong member, as was most of his family before him, of the Island Falls Blue Lodge. When he came to New York he achieved 32nd degree status. Ron was also active in Commandery, Shriners, Knights Templar and the Order of Eastern Star.
