Eric Kefauver Edie, age 70, of White Hall, Maryland passed away on October 1, 2023. Born in Baltimore, Maryland, he was the son of Ann Kefauver Edie, and the late Norman Ralph Edie.
Eric, better known as Rick to friends and customers, enjoyed working at Kefauver Lumber Company, the family owned and operated business located in Jarrettsville.

When he retired from Kefauver’s, his passion for working with customers on projects led him to part-time employment at Courtland Hardware.
In addition to spending time with his family and his eight grandchildren, he enjoyed attending military air shows and serving on the board of the Jarrettsville Volunteer Fire Company.
Eric is survived by his wife, Wanda Bea Edie; sisters Norma Campbell and Diane Waltimyer; children, daughter Sarah E. Spence and husband Brad of Darlington, MD., sons Matthew H.
