Joe Edwards Obituary
"Smokin"
1958 ~ 2015
On February 26th we lost another great man to a sudden illness. Joe Edwards was born on July 2nd, 1958 the son of Helen Marie Cook and June Owen Edwards in Gunnison, UT. At the loss of his parents at the age of only six he moved to the Salt Lake Valley where he was raised by his sister Patricia Marie and her husband Verlynn Jensen. Who sought to it that he graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1976.
After high school Joe started a career as a lineman. He was a proud member of the Union (IBEW57) where he dedicated many years of service to keep things running and bright for all of us. Included in his career where companies like UP&L and Wasatch Electric, just to name a couple. Joe certainly loved his job, especially when he got to fly a helicopters.
Early in life Joe met his former wife Debbie Brian Edwards and her two daughters Justina Paulsen and Wendy Rawlins. Joe and Debbie soon after gave birth to their daughter Jo Marie Edwards. Unfortunately Joe lost his wife to the hands of God in 1992.
In this final chapter Joe reunited with an old childhood friend Cindy Ann and later made her his girlfriend and gladly accepted her six children. Cindy was with him until the day he left us for a better place. He has now found his huge piece of property he always wanted and is sleeping under the stars next to his campfire.
He is survived by his daughter Justina Paulsen, Wendy (Robert) Rawlins, Jo Edwards (Justin) Maynard; grandchildren Leah and Damien Rawlins, and Teagan Sereal; sisters Patricia Marie (Verlynn) Jensen, Penelope (Johnny) Pritchett; brother Michael Edwards.
