William “Bill” Edwards passed away peacefully April 3, 2019, at St Alexius Hospital. A Memorial Service will be held at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, April 9, 2019, at Bismarck Funeral Home.
Bill was born in Bismarck on February 20, 1953 to Charles and Ruth (McIntosh)Edwards.
He spent his whole life in Bismarck, graduating from Bismarck High School in 1971 and attended Bismarck Junior College. Bill was employed at Hedahls Auto Parts as a parts buyer for over 30 years. Bill had a real passion for his job and was very proud to be a member of the Hedahls Auto Parts “Family”.
Bill was very active in the Bismarck-Mandan bowling, pool, and dart leagues and was a real student of the game. He always wanted to do his best but winning wasn’t everything to him, he just wanted to compete and have a good time. His favorite activity was golf though; he made so many good friends golfing and could be found at Tom O’Leary Golf Course almost every day in the summer.
Bill was a kind and gentle person and once you made his friendship, it was forever. He will be deeply missed by many.
Bill is survived by his brother, Charles L Edwards of Salem, NH, sister, Sheri Edwards of Coulee Dam, Wa, his lifelong friend, Brady Schilling, and many uncles, aunts, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
