Robert Eugene (Bob) Edwards April 2, 1923 - October 8, 2008
The founder of R.E. EDWARDS & ASSOCIATES, Inc. , went to be with his Lord on October 8, 2008. Bob lived a full and joyful life.
Born and raised in Oakland, Bob joined the Army in 1942. Later he founded R.E. EDWARDS & ASSOCIATES in 1955. The company continues today with two sons, a daughter and two grandsons managing the continued growth and success.
Bob retired and moved with Mavis to Carmel in 1987. Carmel Presbyterian Church in Carmel, the Monterey YMCA, and community service became Bob's new life where he served on Boards, Missions Committees and had a great passion for fund raising and stewardship.
Bob is survived by his life's companion and sweetheart of 58 years Mavis; sons Dave and Dan, their wives, and daughter Mary, her husband, and their families, including 6 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren and one more on the way.
Bob (Dad, Grandpa, Papa, and Greatgrandpa) had a short illness that allowed him to say goodbye to his family and many friends with dignity and without suffering.
Thank you to all who knew him and for being a part of his families’ life and contributing to the
Joy for his Journey.
