Norman Wesley Edwards, beloved son, brother, husband, father and grandfather, uncle and friend, of Rancho Cucamonga, California died suddenly on June 13, 2019. Norman was born on May 27, 1960 in Los Angeles, California to Jerry Ross Edwards of Tahoka, Texas and Creswell, Oregon and Armida Barbara Edwards of Whittier, California and Creswell, Oregon.

Norman was a spirited competitor and athlete. He excelled in basketball and track & field, lettering in ten sports and named scholar/athlete at California High School. He played basketball at the University of the Pacific with a full athletic scholarship, helping the team win their conference and reach the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

Norman graduated with a degree in Business and entered the field of automotive sales and dealership management in Seaside, California.
