Thomas Lee Edwards, 1952~2017
Our loving father and husband Thomas passed away Thursday night, Sept. 7 2017, after a long battle with cancer.

He was born on July 28, 1952 in Patterson, New Jersey. He worked various jobs while traveling the United States, until he met his wife Andrea Somerville and finally settled down here in Moab, Utah, where he finished his career at the solid waste management plant as the manager.

His greatest joy was his family who will miss him greatly. He was preceded in death by his son Thomas Jr. and daughter Tammy Edwards. He is survived by his wife Andrea, and his children Kim Edwards Mueller (Ben Mueller), Jennifer Edwards, Eric Edwards, Sami Edwards and Ryan Edwards, as well as his 10 wonderful grandchildren Gabrielle, Gianna, Mia, Bella, Coral, Cristopher, Julia, Ryker, Sylas and Lexi.

At Tom’s request, cremation has taken place and no public funeral or viewing services will be held. Any condolence cards or gifts can be left at the Spanish Valley Mortuary.

The family wishes to thank everyone for their good wishes and help during this hard time. You may send condolences to the family at
