Bradley W. Edwards

Bradley W. Edwards, 63, of Avoca, passed away on May 13, 2024 at Allied Services Hospice Center, Scranton with his family by his side.  He was born in Scranton on July 25, 1960, and was the son of the late William H. Edwards and Lucy Rose Morris Edwards.

Employed by Latona Trucking, where he spent many years managing the garage and recently driving truck, Bradley was a man who could get any job done and if he couldn’t, he knew who to call. He loved to help manage a project or give his input. The friendships formed over the years through his employment meant the world to him. His coworkers were family. 

Bradley enjoyed socializing at the West Side Social Club, mostly at his favorite machine. When he was able, he loved to ride his motorcycle and looked forward to great weather to enjoy a ride. There is no doubt he is now able to ride again.

Bradley was known for his quick wit and humor by his family and friends. He never missed an opportunity to roast a good friend and always enjoyed good natured humor that made everyone who really knew him laugh and smile. In addition to his outrageous personality, Bradley had a bottomless well of generosity. Said simply, Bradley would give the shirt off his back to help anyone in need.  His kindness and willingness to offer help and support, along with his unmatched personality will leave a big void in those who knew him.

In addition to his parents William and Lucy Edwards, he was preceded in death by four brothers: William, Thomas, Richard, and Michael Edwards and three sisters: Nancy Evans, Carolyn Shafer and Bonnie Semmelmann.

Bradley is survived by his daughter Melissa and grandson, Max Szumski. Also surviving are his two brothers, Dennis Edwards and spouse Theresa of Scranton, PA and Gary Edwards and spouse Lehrae of Duryea, PA, his goddaughter Lindsey Fanning and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

Bradley’s daughter Melissa would like to thank family and friends who helped him each day. Chris his favorite caretaker, your generosity and selflessness will be forever in our hearts. Thank you to all his friends who were there when he needed you. It’s impossible to put into words how thankful we are. Our family at Latona Trucking, you will always be part of our family.

We would like to thank the staff at Allied Services Scranton. Your kindness and empathy has been truly unmatched. We would like to send “high fives” to the nurses and doctors who assisted Bradley at Geisinger Wyoming Valley, you know who you are.

Memorial services for Brad will take place on Sunday, May 19th at 4:30pm at Kiesinger Funeral Services, Inc., 255 McAlpine St., Duryea with Fr. Phillip Sladicka of Queen of the Apostles Parish Church officiating.  Friends may call for visitation on Sunday afternoon from 2pm until time of the service.
