Roy F. Edwardsen

June 7, 2014

HOPE FALLS -- Roy F. Edwardsen, 65, passed away June 7, 2014; the world lost one of the great ones.

Roy was born in Schenectady in 1949 to Fritz and Margaret Edwardsen. He was a 1966 graduate of Linton High School. Roy enlisted in the U.S. Navy during Vietnam and served aboard the USS America as an aviation electrician. Following his military service, Roy returned to Schenectady where he became a police officer.

After 23 years of faithful service to the city, he fulfilled a lifelong dream by retiring and moving to the Town of Hope in the Adirondacks with his wife, Mary, where he enjoyed hunting, fishing, hiking, gardening and anything else related to the outdoors. He continued to serve the people as a volunteer fireman, search and rescue volunteer, and town historian.

He was proud of his military service, and held all veterans in the highest regard, and with the greatest respect. He was an active member of the Patriot Guard Riders, and participated in the Honor Flight Program where he escorted several World War II veterans to the national memorials in Washington, D.C.

He enjoyed riding his motorcycle and traveling with Mary, and spending time with his friends and family, whom he loved above all else, especially his grandchildren. Roy was a helper and friend to all who knew him and, many times, even to those that did not. He will be sorely missed.

He was predeceased by his father, Fritz, and his wife, Kristine. Roy is survived by his loving wife, Mary; his mother, Margaret; his daughters, Dawn Edwardsen of Schenectady and Melissa (Patrick) McLaughlin of Glenville; stepdaughter Brooke (Brian) Pierotti of Scotia; and his son, Jeffrey (Tricia) Edwardsen of Niskayuna. Roy leaves his sister, Evelyn (Michael) Brown of Florida as well as seven cherished grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

A service of remembrance was held Wednesday, June 11, at Glenville Funeral Home, Glenville. Committal services with honors followed at the Gerald B.H. Solomon National Cemetery in Schuylerville. A celebration of his life followed that at TJ's Flightline in Glenville. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to either Wounded Warrior Project, POB 758517, Topeka KS 66675 or Honor Flight Program, Attn: Diane Cresse, 33 E. Auburn Ave., Springfield OH 45505.
