Obituary for Sanford R. Edwards

Sanford Robert “Sandy” Edwards entered eternal rest Wednesday, February 21, 2018 in the comfort of his home surrounded by family. He is predeceased by his parents, Samuel and Irene Edwards, stepmother, Matilda Edwards, and one sister, Chaneta Edwards- Ford.
He leaves to cherish his memory his loving wife, Pamela Edwards; his long-time friend of 53 years and mother of his children, Claudia Rankin; two sons, Sean Edwards and Yusuf Jones; four daughters, Shelly Edwards, Amber Stec, Erin Edwards, and Drew Hunter; three step-children, Edward Martin, Michael Gillim, and Michelle Thomas; 15 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
Sanford was born on November 30, 1949 in Bridgeport, CT to Samuel and Irene Edwards. He graduated from Central High School in 1967 and attended Strayer University. He worked for many years as an electrician at the United Illuminating Company in Bridgeport. After moving to Hartford, he began work as a Network Engineer consultant for UTC Aerospace Systems in Hartford, CT, where he worked until retiring in 2015.
Sanford was a generous, loyal and loving husband, father, grandfather and friend. He could always be counted on to show up and support his loved ones. He loved having heated debates about current events or politics or watching a good science-fiction movie or show – he was a “Trekkie” (fan of the Star Trek series) for most of his life. He was a lover of the arts, in particular photography and jazz. Those that knew him well could catch him at a summer jazz festival, donning his favorite fedora.
