Philip 'Joe' Edwards

Philip ‘Joe’ Edwards, longtime Juneau resident and master machinist, died Oct. 29, 2016.

There will be a joint celebration of life for Joe and for Sherman Johnson at the Juneau Yacht Club on Nov. 20 at 3 p.m.

These two men were friends for a very long time — they knew, respected and enjoyed working with one another. They had many friends in common.

It is fitting, therefore, in recognition of this great friendship, that there be one memorial celebration for the both of them.

Bring your memories, stories, some of your grief and gratitude. Bring food or drink to share if you like.
