"The absence of his

laugh, his rare laugh.How deafening the

silence without it.

You left us today;

Grandchildren that loved you.

Children that adored you;

A wife that was part of you,

And no words can

justify our loss."

Beloved father, grandfather, husband, Irvin Baker Edwards was taken from us March 23, 1992. An attempt to honor the life he shared, with mere words is impossible. Instead we've chosen to cite historical events in his life, and store the precious memories where he placed them, in our hearts.

Born, Milford, Utah on May 27, 1921 to Solomon Baker and Annabell Frazer Edwards. Married, Noma Bradshaw in Las Vegas Nov. 11, 1941; later solemnized in the Salt Lake LDS Temple, November 11, 1957. Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where he was appointed a High Priest in the holy Melchizedek Priesthood. World War II veteran, rancher, miner, and electrician. Retired from the Salt Lake City Water Dept.

Survived by his wife, Noma; son, Robert Edwards; six daughters, Irva Rene (Alva) Davis; Annabell (Tony) Diaz; Mildred Valencia; Jan (Earl) Dixon; Betty (John) Greenwell; and Laurie (Phil) Smith; 12 granddaughters; eight grandsons; seven great-granddaughters; one great-grandson; all of Salt Lake City. Preceded in death by both parents, Solomon and Annabell; brother, Merrill Edwards; and daughter Beverly Jean.
