Ron was born July 14, 1952, in Detroit, Michigan, and was one of six children. Survived by his wife, Wendy, children Michael Edwards, Stacey (John) Baker, and Mark (Michelle) Edwards, and grandchildren Morgan Edwards, Trey Baker, and Kayla Baker. Also, survived by his parents, George and Doris Edwards; sisters, Karen Kneisel, Carol (Pat) Bachelder, Nancy (Brent) Helm, Marilyn (Joe) Maggioncalda; and brother, David Edwards. He will also be missed by many nieces, nephews, and grandnieces. Ron grew up in Waterford Township, Michigan, and graduated from Ferris State College in 1976 with a B.S. in Marketing. His job led him to Columbus, Ohio, in 1984. Until his retirement, he spent his career in chemical sales which took him all over the United States, Canada, and Europe. He loved to coach his children in soccer, baseball, basketball, and bowling. Ron was active with the YMCA Indian Guides when Mike and Mark were young. His Indian name was “Bald Eagle” – a very fitting name. He enjoyed bowling in numerous leagues and was an avid golfer. He and his son, Michael, once golfed at Pebble Beach and they attended all four major golf championships, including the British Open and The Masters. His passion was teaching Second Grade Sunday School for twenty-five years at the Church of the Messiah. Ron’s students will undoubtedly remember a lively game he called “Bible Baseball”. He also enjoyed serving on various church committees over the years. Ron loved vacationing with his family on the sandy shores of Lake Michigan. He also loved the University of Michigan Wolverines and enjoyed attending many football games as a season ticket holder – Go Blue! In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. https://www.lls.org/
