Biography: Thomas Wayne Edwards, 66, of Silver Run, died Sunday, Dec 24, 2023, at his home.  He was the husband of Alice Fay (Fritz) Edwards for 39 years.  Born March 8, 1957 in Gettysburg, Tom was the son of the late James H. & Mary Grace (Ambrose) Edwards.

He was a 1975 Westminster High School graduate. Tom worked at a cabinet shop in Union Bridge for Milton Amey in the mid '70's building high-end cabinets until his parents had some health issues.  He then came home to help on the farm.  Tom's dad had a sawmill which Tom took over and expanded the business. He was a very competitive Drag racer and won many trophies.  He went on different NASCAR trips. He was a huge Dale Earnhart fan.  Early on Tom enjoyed Carlisle Flea Markets and Steamshows.  He enjoyed riding his Harley Davidson motorcycles and took trips out west and to New York with special friends and family.  Tom enjoyed going to Bike week in Daytona Beach.  He took trips to Las Vegas with special friends.  He was a very skilled mechanic, fabricator and knowledgeable on anything.  He was a logger and farmer.  He was always willing to lend a helping hand or share his knowledge.  The list goes on and on.  Tom was a member of Covenant Life Church of Hanover and a life member of Littlestown F.O.E. 

Tom loved life, people and laughter.  When he laughed, you were laughing also.  If you were meeting him for the first time, it was like you knew him all your life.  Tom had a huge heart.  Life will never be the same without Tom Edwards.  Everyone misses him and loves him, especially his soul mate.  

The family will receive friends on Thursday, Jan 4, from 4- 7 P.M. at Bethel Assembly of God, 1125 Frederick Pike, Littlestown. Memorial Service is Friday, Jan 5, at 11 A.M. at Bethel with Pastor Steve Plank officiating.  If lieu of flowers, memorials in Tom's name may be sent to Covenant Life Church - 117 Ruth Ave. Hanover PA  17331. Online condolences may be shared on

So sorry to hear of your loss. He will never be gone forever as long as he lives in our memories. Believe in guardian angels and you will find him beside you and watching over you. Tom was indeed a great man, maybe not one that will be in history books, but as an example to all.

Alice I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Tommy. I know you will miss him terribly as long as you have been together. He was a great guy and with spending a lot of time with him on the farm growing up I learned so much from him. I will always remember him and may he RIP
