Gary Edwards

May 1, 1945 — November 4, 2021

Gary Edwards, age 76, of Stanton, passed away at his son and daughter-in-law’s home on Thursday, November 4, 2021.

Gary spent his childhood pumping gas and fixing cars at his family-owned Texaco Gas Station in Sheridan, MI. He then worked for GM (Oldsmobile, Plant 5) in Lansing MI for 31 years. Gary's love for mechanics led him to submit many bonus-earning ideas to Oldsmobile to improve upon their mechanical specifications. He never passed up an opportunity to help cobble-hob anything into a functioning capacity. He loved deer hunting, fast cars, and drag racing with many "trophies" to show for it. Gary enjoyed telling tales of the past. Cherished memories for all who had the opportunity and pleasure to hear these stories.

Surviving Gary are his sons, Wayne (Nikki) Edwards and Brent (Becky) Edwards; grandchildren, Brandon Dennis, Nicole Edwards, Drake Edwards, Cole Edwards, Parker Edwards, Samuel Budnick; Chelsea Knott; great grandchildren, Kaylin Dennis, Brianna Dennis, and Jensen Budnick; sister, Marcia (Jack) Gachter; ex-wife, Wanda Brokaw; and many nieces and nephews.

Gary was preceded in death by his parents, Clare & Frances (Dickinson) Edwards; brothers, Dick Edwards and Ted Edwards; and nephew, Jeremiah Gachter.

In honoring Gary’s wishes, no formal funeral ceremony is being held.
