Robert Walter Edmondson, 74, a proud son, patriot, and friend, of Sewickley, passed peacefully in his home on Sunday, May 3, 2020. He was born in Summit, NJ on August 9, 1945 to the late Walter Carver and Alice Elizabeth (Sullivan) Edmondson. A graduate of Bloomfield College and Drew University Theological School, he was a military advisor and chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserves. He was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Pittsburgh 4th Ward, Franklin Park. Robert was an avid collector of watches dating back to WWI and antique trains. He was a history buff and could weave a tall tale from almost nothing. He comported himself as an in-charge person with larger than life military stance and booming voice. He is survived by his loving church family. All services were private, and burial was at the National Cemetery of the Alleghenies. Arrangements by Copeland’s.
