Obituary For Jack Kenneth Edwards
Jack Kenneth Edwards Mueller the son of Ray Jones Edwards RIP (father) Barbara Maxine Edwards RIP (mother), passed peacefully at 9:35 AM on August 6th, 2021. Jack was born November 18, 1955 in Medford, Oregon and lived a life rooted in love. He was a painter, believer, mystic, survivor, lover of plants and kittens, survivor. Jack was generous, funny and sweet. A forever learner and impressively creative, Jack produced brightly colored cubism paintings and sculptures. Jack was out and very proud of being gay. He enjoyed a wonderful marriage to Theodore Daykin Mueller. The two shared 12 wonderful years together full of love, connection and laughter. Not a day went by without many expressions of “I love you” shared. During Christmas Jack would make an unbelievable amount of cookies to be shared with friends and family, a family tradition giving cookies as gifts, making his husband, Teddy, a very popular man at work.
Jack is survived by friends and family: his children Emma Mueller and Riot Mueller who he loved and adored as his own, his brother Raymond “Gilbert” Edwards and his loving nieces Ida Edwards, Ronja Edwards, Barbara Joy Goguey, Sheena Goguey, Danielle Janease McSorley (not in any paticular order or blood type) and many more brothers, family that I don’t have the information for.
He loved angels and put them all around the home, garden and saw them on the ceiling as he passed. He bridged relationships with his family which facilitated them being closer than ever. His strong loving presence continues to be felt–surrounding and protecting us all. Jack would want you to be extra loving and generous to a friend or stranger–why not try that today?
