In memory of
John Sim Edgar Jr.
John Sim Edgar, Jr., 75, of Lakewood, CO passed away at home on Aug. 29, 2018 . He had battled Small Cell Lung Cancer since March of 2017. John was born in El Centro, California to John and Maybelle (Kinnear) Edgar. He graduated from Central Union High School in 1960 and spent a year in college at Cal Poly, Pomona, CA. On Feb. 14th, 1964 he married Mary Chubbic and they raised two children, William and Katharine Edgar. They celebrated 54 years of marriage and their 50th anniversary was a blowout affair given by their children in 2014. John was an outdoorsman from the get-go! His varied careers included truck driver, truck mechanic, feed yard foreman, grower (all in Imperial Valley, CA) and rock-crushing-plant operator (in Colorado). When he had a few days to call his own, he was off to go fishing, hunting, or flying. After retirement at age 67 he continued to enjoy the outdoors, taking care of our plants, trees and lawns and marveling at all the birds around, most of which he knew the breeds. He loved vacation times, especially an Alaskan cruise with which he surprised Mary on her 50th birthday. That gave him such delight to be able to do this for her. One of his favorite pastimes was playing cards. Cribbage was his favorite game (and he usually won!) but he enjoyed many others as well: Pinochle, Canasta and Rummy. He was also an avid reader and always had a book nearby. John is survived by his wife, Mary; his son, William (Jennie); his daughter, Katharine; and his grandson, Christopher. Also brothers Robert (Sharon) and Michael (Janice) and numerous nieces and nephews. Donations in his memory may be made to the American Cancer Society, 10065 E. Harvard Ave. #400, Denver 80231; St. Judes Children's Hospital, 1660 S. Albion St. #916, Denver, Co 80222; or The Wild Animal Sanctuary, 1946 County Rd. 53, Keenesburg, CO 80643.
