A celebration of a nation's hero, a community's citizen, and a much beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend, retired United States Marine Corps Maj. Jerry A. Edwards, will be held this Friday, April 18, 2014, at 10 a.m. at Lowe Funeral Home, Quitman. Visitation will be Thursday, April 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home. Jerry served his country for 20 years, including two tours of Vietnam, where he was commended as an exemplary warrior with the Vietnam Service Medal with Bronze Star, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Cross of Gallantry, to name a few. His second career was serving his local community as the executive director of the Mineola Housing Authority for 30 years. Other notable mentions include: president of the Wood County Historical Society; city councilman, Wood County Emergency Management Plan developer; First Baptist Church Choir member and cherished song leader at the Heritage Nursing Home for many years. He would want you to know that every day is a holiday and that nothing in life that's easy is worth a darn. He impressed upon his children that today is another day to excel. He believed in working hard and at the end of that day, there was nothing better than a bowl of old-fashioned, hand-cranked homemade ice cream. Jerry was born on Nov. 4, 1937, in Greenville, and was preceded in death by Ollie Roy Jr. and Mary Pauline Edwards; and his brother, Roy Jr. Edwards. His grandmother, Sara Olga Wright, married to A.G Wright and left a widow, raised her children through the Great Depression by serving as one of the first teachers in Wood County and boarding students in the "house on Billy Goat Hill." Jerry, his wife, Pilar, and their three children, Vanessa Lynn, Mary Pauline and Oliver Lee, moved to Quitman and restored that old venerable house on the hill. Jerry is survived by his wife, Pilar; first child, Vanessa and her husband Dan; second child, Mary Pauline and her husband Daniel; and third child, Oliver, his wife Sharon, and their two children - prized grandchildren - Luke and Lauren. There will never be another who has the true grit, the Barney Miller/Benny Hill sense of humor, the big voice with one heck of a laugh, the humble heart and the hardened but constant character of Jerry A. Edwards. We will miss him dearly. We know that God took him past those pearly gates where he will enjoy one heck of a reunion with long passed Edwards family members. You are our sunshine. Semper Fidelis, Marine! Read Obituary
