With profound sorrow, we share the passing of Edward Kay Bridge, lovingly known as Ed, on July 22nd, 2023. Born on February 4th, 1937 in Salt Lake City, UT, Edward was a beacon of compassion, ambition, and generosity throughout his life. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather, and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Edward's adventurous spirit was reflected in his love for anything with a motor, whether it was driving, fixing, or showing off his latest project. His passion for adventure also took him into the great outdoors where he loved to fish, hunt, and ride his ATV.\n\nEdward had an ambitious and industrious spirit in both his personal and professional life. His career in property management was marked by a tireless commitment to his work, managing rental properties with dedication and integrity. His compassion and generosity extended beyond his work and family as he volunteered for the Utah Food Bank, the county jail, and Salt Lake County. Edward's generous spirit and commitment to service won him numerous car show awards, but what mattered most to Edward was his family, his work, and his beloved cat.\n\nEdward was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He served a mission with his beloved wife, Edna, in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission. He held multiple callings and served as Branch President, showing his devotion to his faith. As the scriptures say, "Charity never faileth..." (1 Corinthians 13:8), Edward's life was a testament to this verse, with his unwavering love and generosity for his family, friends, and community.\n\nEdward is survived by his loving wife, Edna; his sons, Larry and Arthur Bridge, his sister Beth Frakes, granddaughters Samantha Meneses, Charlene Thompson, Morgan Hendrick, Maegan Patterson, Andrea Scaggs, Kelsie Bridge, three great grandchildren and his faithful cat. He is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Elizabeth Bridge and daughter Cheri Bruno. His adventurous spirit, compassionate heart, and generous soul will be deeply missed, but his legacy will live on in the many lives he touched.\n\nWe invite you to leave your memories of Edward and upload any photos you might have to his memorial page.
