John Sim Edgar, Jr., 75, of
Lakewood, CO passed away
at home on Aug. 29, 2018 . He
had battled Small Cell Lung
Cancer since March of 2017.
John was born in El Centro,
California to John and
Maybelle (Kinnear) Edgar. He graduated
from Central Union High School
in 1960 and spent a year in college at
Cal Poly, Pomona, CA. On Feb. 14th,
1964 he married Mary Chubbic and
they raised two children, William and
Katharine Edgar. They celebrated 54
years of marriage and their 50th anniversary
was a blowout affair given
by their children in 2014.
John was an outdoorsman from the
get-go! His varied careers included
truck driver, truck mechanic, feed
yard foreman, grower (all in Imperial
Valley, CA) and rock-crushing-plant
operator (in Colorado). When he had
a few days to call his own, he was off
to go fishing, hunting, or flying. After
retirement at age 67 he continued to
enjoy the outdoors, taking care of our
plants, trees and lawns and marveling
at all the birds around, most of which
he knew the breeds. He loved
vacation times, especially an
Alaskan cruise with which he
surprised Mary on her 50th
birthday. That gave him such
delight to be able to do this
for her.
One of his favorite pastimes was
playing cards. Cribbage was his favorite
game (and he usually won!) but he
enjoyed many others as well: Pinochle,
Canasta and Rummy. He was also
an avid reader and always had a book
nearby.
John is survived by his wife, Mary;
his son, William (Jennie); his daughter,
Katharine; and his grandson,
Christopher. Also brothers Robert
(Sharon) and Michael (Janice) and
numerous nieces and nephews.
