James C. Edwards


James C. Edwards 67, passed away on Friday, December 17, 2021 at his home after a long illness. He was born in North Carolina on July 23, 1954 and traveled many places during his lifetime.

Jim met his beloved wife Suzann in Austin, Texas in 1975. Together they moved to Louisiana where their daughter was born, later moved to Yorkshire, New York and finally settled in the Capital District in 2000. Jim was an expert at repairing car transmissions. He loved to fish, boat, and he enjoyed watching Nascar and his Buffalo Bills.

Suzann, Crystal and family,
My sincere condolences. I have many fond memories of great times spent with you and our group of friends during your Yorkshire and Arcade days. Jim was always fun to be around and eager to talk about any topic. May you have peace at this time.
