Alan Edwards
March 25, 1951 -- July 10, 2019

Alan Stanley Edwards was born March 25, 1951 in Springfield, Mass. and passed away after a brief illness on July 10, 2019 at his home in Richardson, Texas. All who knew him best, could tell you that he loved life, his family, his Lord, volunteering, and all New England/Boston sports teams – especially the Red Sox!

Alan is survived by his wife of 34 years, Debbie Louise Keeton Edwards of Richardson; his children, Josh Harris (Amber), Megan Edwards Horton (Trevor) and Jim Edwards (Beth) and 4 grandchildren, Jordan and Judson Harris, Ellie Horton, and Phillip James (PJ) Edwards; his brother –in-law, Paul Provost; his nephew Tony Provost and his wife Chelsea; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents A. Stanley and Nancy Edwards and his sister Susan Provost.

Alan spent his childhood in Agawam, Massachusetts, graduated from Agawam High School, and received degrees from American International College and Western New England University. He was an Eagle Scout and as an adult participated in Circle Ten Council. He loved art, drama and writing. Alan was usually seen with a camera around his neck and a smile on his face! During the last 5 years; his retirement time consisted of planning and participating in events and volunteering. He spent his “work days” at Pathway to Victory, serving on committees, ushering for events, and growing in his knowledge of God. Alan loved his family! He attended and photographed events, got down on the floor and chased the children, drew pictures, made silly faces, explored nature, and traveled. When Alan was around you never needed a book to explain the history of the area!

Alan and Debbie took their “trip of a lifetime” to Israel in 2014. Alan stated that he is looking forward to returning again – to the New Jerusalem with his Lord!

I went to high school with Alan. He was one of the sweetest guys I've ever known. We connected when he was here caring for his Mom, as I am caring for mine. His Kind words comforted me. A loss to so many!

Alan was my closest cousin in age and we spent LOTS of time together growing up. LOTS of cousins got together for every holiday and we were always spending time at each others'houses during the summer. I am really going to miss the guy.

So sorry to learn of Alan's death. We had a number of fun adventures together in high school and in Worcester when Alan attended WPI and I was at Holy Cross. You're all in our thoughts and prayers.

Friend from Agawam and WPI Brooklyn , Connecticut

Very sorry to learn of Alan's passing. We were friends through much of our school years sharing many classes and lots of good times until we went off to WPI together. We both had our red hair and sometimes people would mix us up. But his was always much redder and I see that it stayed that way. Wishing the family peace and healing from your loss.
