Obituary for Larry Edwards

Larry Edwards, born on August 17, 1943 and resided in Altoona, Iowa, passed away on May 17, 2024 at the age of 80. He was the beloved spouse of Nancy, married in 1964. He was preceded in death by Nancy in 2023. Larry and Nancy were blessed with two children: Christine Franck (spouse Don) and Jeffrey Edwards (spouse Angie), 4 grandchildren: Alexandra (Thomas) Christensen of Ankeny, Austin Edwards of Des Moines, Gavin Franck of Altoona and Logan Franck of Altoona and 5 great-grandchildren: Gabriel, Emery, Crystina, Kaden and Willow of Ankeny.

Larry attended East High School and graduated in 1961. He dedicated many years of his life to serving his community as a member of the Des Moines Police Department, where he ultimately retired in 1998. Following retirement, he served as interim Police Chief of Norwalk and Pleasant Hill. In addition to his law enforcement career, Larry was actively involved in various organizations including a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge, Shriner, 26 year Charter Member of the Iron Warriors Motorcycle Club (Police and Fire), Des Moines Police Burial Association, and The Iowa State Police Association.

Outside of work and community service, Larry enjoyed spending time fishing with family and friends, as well as taking riding trips with Nancy, family and friends on their Harley Davidson. Larry and Nancy's favorite vacation destination was in Negril, Jamaica where they made 47 annual trips beginning in 1984.

Larry Edwards will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him. He was a dedicated family man, a loyal friend, and a pillar in his community. His legacy of kindness, generosity, and service will live on in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to have known him.

He passed away after a brave battle with Multiple Myeloma.
