  • Jeffry F. Edwards, 54, of Herkimer, passed away on July 17, 2013, after a long illness.
    He was born on March 15, 1959, in Herkimer, the beloved son of Richard and Mary (Luther) Edwards. Jeff graduated from Herkimer Senior High School in 1978. He enlisted into the United States Marine Corps and served our country proudly. He enjoyed working for the Stanley Door Company for over 20 years in Virginia and Spokane, Wash., then at Federal Express until his return to Herkimer in 2004.
    Surviving Jeffry are his father, Richard Edwards; Jeff’s children, Jason and Zulhailly Edwards, of Carthage, Patrick Edwards, of Spokane, Wash., Amber Edwards Bruce, of Little Falls, Jonathan Cody Edwards and Jeffrey Maxwell Edwards, of Spokane Wash.; siblings, Barbara Edwards and companion, Dale Kennedy, of Fultonville, Karen and Richard Paul, of Herkimer, Mary Beth Cammann, of Stratford, Michael and Teresa Edwards, of Herkimer, and Richard and Amy Edwards, of Herkimer. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
    Jeffry was predeceased by his mother, Mary (Luther) Edwards; a brother, Patrick Edwards; a brother-in-law, Robert Cammann; and a nephew, Zackary Edwards.
    Jeff truly loved his family and was a devoted father and grandfather. Jeff was a very loving, caring and kind person; he always was there to lend a helping hand to those in need. He loved the outdoors and going to hunting camp with his family and friends.
    In keeping with Jeffry’s wishes, there are no calling hours. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Vincent A. Enea Funeral Service, 329 S. Washington St., Herkimer (866-1500).
