Edward W. Tarry

Edward was born December 13, 1938 in Chester, PA and passed away November 15, 2018 in Lakewood, WA. Edward was beloved by his family and will be missed tremendously, but they know that he is in heaven and rejoice that they will see him again someday.

He is survived by his wife, Jessie. Edward and Jessie were married for 57 years. Their children include daughter, Christa (Mike) Sommerfeld; and two sons, Richard (Debbie) Tarry, Scott (Mary) Tarry. Edward was “Poppa” to his six grandchildren; Megan (Garrett) Baldwin, Lauren Tarry, Olivia (Jordan) Lee, Edward Tarry, Matthew and Jackson Sommerfeld. Edward leaves behind numerous extended family members and friends.

Edward served his country with distinction during 20 years with the US Air Force before retiring in 1977. After a career in business he owned and operated Tarry’s Accounting for 25 years. He was an active member at First Baptist Church of Lakewood for over 50 years.

Edward lived a full and active life including running the Sound to Narrows and other distance running events. As he received treatment for cancer in the final years of his life he was under the expert care of the medical team at Madigan Army Medical Center.
