Life Story for Raymond Stewart Edwards

Raymond Stewart Edwards
Raymond Stewart Edwards, 82, of Cherry Valley, California, crossed the bar Saturday, February 17, 2018 at Valencia Gardens Rehabilitation Center in Riverside, California.

Ray succumbed to pneumonia after fighting other infections for months. He was surrounded by his wife, Dovie, and many of his children and grandchildren.

Ray is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Dovie and daughter Sherry, sons, Ray (Monty), Greg, Mark and Allen, as well as 9 grandchildren and 2 great-granddaughters.

Ray was born in Columbus, Georgia on Sunday, June 23, 1935 to parents Annie E. Stewart and Raymond Montez Edwards, their only child.

After volunteering and joining the U.S. Navy he was stationed in Long Beach, California aboard the U.S.S. Mansfield DD-728. During his service he met Dovie and they married on Monday, October 1, 1956. They wanted a large family, so they were blessed with 5 children.

Ray was a born again Christian and a Deacon in the church in Riverside, California. He taught Sunday School, drove the church bus and loved singing in the church choir.

As a professional short haul truck driver for 28 years, he hauled cement, mobile homes, steel and cement coated pipes.

After retiring, Ray and Dovie moved from Riverside to Cherry Valley, near Oak Glen, where the family always loved to picnic.

Ray's passion was his family and friends, which were many far and wide. He was very active with his Navy ships reunion association and cherished the reconnection with shipmates of the U.S.S. Mansfield DD-728.

Ray was a very loving, generous, reliable man, who never hesitated to help his friends and family, whenever he could.

Memorial Services and Interment will be held Friday, June 22, 2018 at Riverside National Cemetery. (Exact time to be determined.)

Reception will follow immediately after at the home of Ray and Sandy Edwards. 5418 Jurupa Ave. Riverside ,California, 92504.
Please R.S.V.P. to 951-781-4496.
