EDESTRAND, Darryl It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Darryl Edestrand on Sunday, October 8, 2017 in his 72nd year.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, October 22 at Highland Country Club from 1-4.

I'm so sorry to hear of Darryl's (Mr. E) passing. My sincere condolences. I have many fond memories of all the Beachwood Ave families, not to mention the children ( Darryn and Leanne) I babysat so often! My thoughts are with you all at this time.
