Edwin F. North, 55, of 549 Lord Street, Meadville, passed away Wednesday, August 30, 2017, at home.
Edwin was born in Biloxi, MS on May 7, 1962, a son of Karen (Bausman) and the late Dean L. North.
On July 24, 1982 Edwin married Lynne A. Stallard; she survives.
Edwin graduated from Meadville High School in 1981. He went on to be a Tool and Die Maker for more than 30 years. For the past 21 years he worked for Canto Tool in Meadville. In 2008 Edwin earned his Licensed Practical Nursing Degree. Over the years he had been employed by the former Sugar Creek Station, the former Beverly Health Care and Rolling Fields. Edwin became very involved in the Cursillo Movement after attending a Cursillo Retreat. In the last few years Edwin discovered and pursued his passion for stained glass art. As a member of Arts for Everyone, Edwin's inherent love for helping others took the form of teaching. He would host sessions for others who were new to the art, all the while continuing to hone his skills. His works could be found at the Crawford County Fair where they earned several ribbons. He enjoyed camping and most of all cooking, which he did very well. Edwin was a hard working man who loved his family deeply. He enjoyed watching his son play hockey and following the events of his daughters. His grandchildren were very special to him. He will be sadly missed.
