He was preceded in death by his mother and father Ernest E. and Evelyn J. (Peterson) Edwards and his

Robin was an avid fan of Massillon Tiger Football, the Cleveland Browns, and Nascar Racing. Even during
his illness his love of the Massillon Tigers continued; physically he could not attend the games, but he
still followed them during their season, and everyone who knew him knows that he was all about those
Tigers! He will be deeply missed by all, especially his infectious smile.
