Born at Killarney in 1923, son of Percy Charles Edwards and Florrie Hellis McCormick (1890-1966), he worked in his father’s photographic studio at Killarney and took it over in 1952. He married Dorothy Helen Dagg and they had three children. He died suddenly on 1 July 1983 and was buried in the Killarney Cemetery. His wife continued to operate the Edwards Photography Studio until 1989. The family’s cameras, glass negatives, and film developing equipment were donated to the J. A. Victor David Museum in Killarney.
