Laurence Richard Edwards
Born: July 23, 1947; Died: Feb. 8, 2012, lived in Big Bear City for about three years. He suffered many medical problems caused while serving in the United States Army during the Vietnam war. While in Vietnam, he was exposed to massive amounts of Agent Orange, which caused several illnesses. He also experienced many rounds of artillery fire, which caused brain concussions that made it almost impossible to sleep. The V.A. Medical care facilities could not help him with this problem.
Larry spent many years working in the Mammoth Lakes area as a Forest Ranger where he performed many rescue operations in the Mt. Whitney area. The rest of his working days he did metal fabrication in the construction industry around Mammoth Lakes.
Larry is survived by his mother, Betty Clark, of Big Bear City; his father, Roy Edwards, of Westlake Village, Calif.; sister, Joan Edwards, also of Westlake Village; and sister, Kathleen Granholm, of Simi Valley, Calif. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews.
He was a good person who would help anyone if he could. He had no religious affiliation.
