Edwards, Alexander (Alex)

Born on April 30th, 1942, he was the son of the late James and Annie-Mae (MacDougall) Edwards. He was a member of the Catholic Church. Before retirement, he worked as a coal miner for many years. He was caring, friendly, and kind. He had a great sense of humor and was always up for a good laugh. Alex loved being outdoors; gardening, fishing, hunting, and going for drives with his wife while listening to country music. He loved working out in his yard and took great pride in his property. His favorite thing to do was going to his sister Janie’s for a good homecooked meal.

His daughters, Sherry (Ronnie), Romaine (Michael), Juanita; his sons, Wayne and Chris (Amanda), and his beloved cat Pootie-Woot.

…Until We Meet Again
Those special memories of you
will always bring a smile
if only I could have you back
for just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
just like we used to do
you always meant so very much
and always will do too
The fact that you’re no longer here
will always cause me pain
but you’re forever in my heart
until we meet again
