Bob Edwards, D-1325

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I got a call this afternoon that Bob Edwards passed away last week.

When I made my first jump in Feb '64, Bob was the Chief Instructor on the dz; he had about 35 jumps at the time.

He became one of my best friends for too many years to count. He was a weekend jumper & had a little over a 1000 jumps. He made his last jump about 25 yrs ago.

For the last 15 yrs or so, he & I would get together for lunch, about every 3-6 months. I last had lunch with him about 6 weeks ago & he seemed in good health. He was 78, so at that age, what happens, happens.

RIP old friend,

Jerry Baumchen
