Edward Yates

Edward Waymond Yates

Father

Edward was a father of three and talented woodworker with a passion for music. Some of my fondest memories were of him playing his guitar while we danced or just listened as he sang. He struggled with addiction for the better part of his life. As hard as we tried to help him, he could not break free, and ultimately, it was this addiction that consumed him. It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to a man that, although he may have made some bad decisions in his life, underneath all the pain and suffering, was still a human who just wanted and needed to be loved.
