June 29, 1955 ~ February 11, 2018
Willie Albert Edwards was born on June 29,1955 in Eddingburg,Texas where he was raised by his parents Annie Mae and Johnny. Willie later moved to Los Angeles, California where he graduated from Crenshaw High School and later joined the Navy where he served for several years. Willie then joined the Local Union 831 and worked as a Steward Builder for trade shows and exhibits up until his retirement in 2016. He loved being a leader and was loved by his co-workers.
Willie loved fishing and cooking. Everyone enjoyed his cooking and he loved cooking for everyone. He was ornery at times but a loving, caring man. He was frugal but giving. He loved his life and never cared what others thought. Willie was a family man, always ready for adventure.
Willie took his last breath on February 11, 2018 at 8:35 am in the presence of children and grandchildren at Kaiser Harbor City. He leaves behind a wife, four sons, one daughter, one daughter-in-law, ten grandchildren and one great-grandson, a host of friends and family.
Willie will be truly missed.
