Brooks N. Edwards (1923-2015)

One of the fixtures of our neighborhood... being the Ketchaboneck part of Westhampton Beach... "Barney" Edwards passed away a week ago last Saturday.

The Edwards lived around the corner from us, a long block up Aspatuck, and he any my wife, walkers both, regularly exchanged pleasantries when their routes intersected.

Jeanne's walks will be less interesting from here on in.

Our thoughts are with his widow "Moonie" whose marriage to Barney spanned five decades.

We are so sorry to hear of Barney's passing. Our condolences to Moonie. We, too, often chatted with Barney when we were out walking. The Village has lost a fine man. He will be missed.

Aye that! An old school gentleman.

I am sorry to hear about Barney's passing as well. I am the youngest daughter of James J. Malone, Barney's partner at the architectural firm of Edwards and Malone PC; and I have fond memories of both Barney and Moonie from my childhood.

I'll pass your thoughts on to Moonie.
