George J. Edwards Jr.

George J. Edwards Jr., 70, of Mattapoisett passed away on Tuesday June 18, 2024 after complications with cancer. Born September 2, 1953 in New Bedford, George was the son of George Sr. and Lorraine Edwards and brother to Douglas Edwards and the late Shawn Edwards. George is survived by his wife of 32 years, Carla Edwards; his children, Rory Edwards, Justine Racheotes, and Sarah Fuller; his granddaughters Miri, Laina, Lola, and Cleo, and his former wife Erica Nelson.

George is also survived by many great friends, including the Coucci family, the Hughes family, and the Wilbur family.

George enjoyed hunting, fishing, walking in the woods, taking drives around Mattapoisett to the dock and Town Landing, doing crosswords, antiquing, and watching classic movies with his wife. For many years George worked for Brownell Systems, where he met Carla, and retired from Brodeur Machine Company after more than 20 years.

The family will host visiting hours Monday June 24, 2024 from 4 – 8 pm at Saunders-Dwyer Mattapoisett Home For Funerals at 50 County Road in Mattapoisett. If you knew George, he didn’t like these things – he was a jeans and T-shirt kind of guy – so please come as you are. For directions and guestbook, visit
