On June 1, 2023, Larry Ray Edwards passed away as he was surrounded by his loved ones. His passing was gentle. Larry celebrated his 87th birthday with his family and some of his closest friends not too long ago. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri, on May 27, 1936. Larry Edwards is survived by his younger brother Mark Edwards in Atlanta, Georgia; his daughter Julie Rudnick in Lakewood, Colorado; his son Brent Edwards in Arvada, Colorado; and his devoted grandchildren Courtney and Raylon, Lauren and Braden.
His grandson Anthony was the only member of his family to pass away before Larry. He wed the love of his life, Martha Jane Edwards, in 1961, after the two of them met on a blind date. Sadly, Martha Jane Edwards passed away in 1992. He tied the knot with Mary Lou Ginder in 1995, and although she passed away before him, he was able to spend his later years basking in the love and companionship of his girlfriend, Jan Ramsthaler. Larry gave a significant amount of his personal time, his experience in business, and his service to a wide variety of organizations over the course of his lifetime,
which he was honored to be a part of. Larry was a member of the United States Air Force who served honorably and earned the rank of Eagle Scout. He was an active board member of the Ronald McDonald House, Denver Chapter, and a proud member of Beta Sigma Psi National Fraternity, where he served in numerous roles over the course of his lifetime. In addition, he was the National President of Beta Sigma Psi National Fraternity for two terms. Larry served the members of his church community at Saint Phillip Lutheran Church in Littleton,
Colorado, with unwavering devotion for more than forty years. Since 1977, he had been a well-liked and highly regarded member of the congregation. A Memorial Service in honor of Larry Ray Edwards will be held on Wednesday, June 14, 2023 at 10:30 am at Saint Philip Lutheran Church located at 7531 South Kendall Boulevard in Littleton, Colorado 80128. In lieu of sending flowers, the family requests that you consider making a contribution to the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Denver in Larry Edwards’s honor.
