Edward Bert Andrews
Aug. 9, 1946 – May 13, 2020
ANDREWS, Edward, 73 of Richmond died Wednesday, May 13, 2020 after courageously dealing with the challenges of Multiple Systems Atrophy. He was born in Binghampton, NY in 1946 and lived his early years in the Binghampton area. As a young adult he met his wife, Marsha, where they both graduated from Ithaca College in NY State in 1969 and then married at Sage Chapel. Their early years were spent high above Cayuga Waters, enjoying raising their young family, friends, both working in education and pursuing graduate degrees. They moved as an adventure to Richmond in 1977, and the goodness of the Richmond community has always been very welcomed and appreciated. Edward has given selflessly to others, first as an educator in Special Education in the public-school system, and for the past several years as a realtor in the Richmond community. He has been an active member of many community and neighborhood groups while living in Stratford Hills, then the Fan, and last his home in the Carillon. He was a member of Leadership Metro Richmond and a member of the City Architectural Review Board. Edward is well known as a family man who participated in his community with integrity and a sense of humor, quietly giving to others without fanfare. He is loved and respected by many. Edward is survived by his wife, Marsha Andrews; three adult daughters, Jessica Troutman (John), Marci Andrews and Katie Andrews; and his five grandchildren all living in the Richmond area. He was preceded in death by their infant son, Jason. Edward is already sorely missed by his family, friends, and his community. A reception will be held at a later date to honor his life. As Edward was a staunch supporter of educating our children, in lieu of flowers contributions can be made to the Embrace Carver Elementary Foundation, c/o Carver Elementary School, 1110 W. Leigh St, Richmond, VA 23220.
Harold and I were sorry to hear about your Dad. He was loved by many and will be sorely missed.
We love and miss you.

Ed was one of the kindest people I have ever known. Since we met in LMR back in 1981, I have had to pleasure of seeing him from time to time as a friend and a client. My heart goes out to his entire family. He was a very special person!
It was my pleasure to know Ed as a real estate colleague and friend, and my sympathy goes out to Marci and all of Ed’s family. He was kind, calm, helpful and had a positive spirit. ❤️
My sympathy to Marci and all the Andrews family
My cousin Ed was a humorous, kind man. He loved his family and was especially comforting with family events. He knew how to love and was a friend as well as one of my favorite relatives. May his girls and Marsha be comforted knowing he loved them. The Richmond community will also miss him and his friendship. Love you Ed!
Edward will be missed by the many people who loved him and called him their friend. He was always there to support and help any and all who knew him. You rarely meet people with Ed’s generous and caring spirit. We have all lost a very special friend. My condolences to his entire family .
Dear Marsha and family;
I am so very, very sorry for your loss.
Marsha, I have thought of you many times over the last few months. I am struggling with the right words to communicate my deepest sympathies. I am thinking of you and sending peace and strength for you.
The news that Ed Andrews died came a sad shock to me and I am sure to many others. He was a great realtor who was extremely helpful as an agent and just a really caring person. I am very sorry for your loss.
Bob and I send our deepest sympathy to Marci and her entire family during this difficult time. We are so pleased to have had the opportunity to meet Ed last November, during our visit to Richmond. Even though we were only with him for a very short visit, we could tell that his family loved him dearly. Again, our condolences to both Marci and her family.
Eddie will be remembered as one of the most sincere man I have ever known; from growing up with him in New York; to knowing him as a dedicated friend in Richmond, VA. I have had the most wonderful opportunity to know this gentle and kind man who will never be forgotten. God bless his beautiful family.
Eddie was such a big part of my childhood growing up. We reconnected a few years back
and he stayed the same. I will always have fond, wonderful memories of him. Love you Eddie.
It was a honor to serve.
Ed was so very helpful to me in his professional capacity as a real estate broker. But even more than that, he had a great and genuine capacity for friendship, and I treasured the conversations we had after our “business” together was completed. I miss him.
I will fondly remember Ed (or Eddie as we called him growing up in Newark Valley). We have so many wonderful memories of our school years. We remained in touch through our real estate adventures referring folks back & forth to me in Atlanta and Ed in Richmond. My deepest sympathy to Marsha, his girls and grandchildren. Love you Eddie and now you are at peace.
My heart and prayers for better times ahead to Marsha and the family.
I knew Eddie through Marsha and wished I had the pleasure of meeting him: maybe I will someday!
Sending all my love to you all. I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to learn from Ed. He truly was the best of the best. He was a friend and mentor and will be greatly missed. Love- Eliza
Dear Marsha and girls,
Ed Andrews – when I think of him, I see a very kind, loving and compassionate man. I was so proud to call him a friend and fellow REALTOR.
May the many happy times you shared be your comfort in the days ahead.
Much love and sympathy,
Eddie B was a wonderful person and I will never forget him. We met during our special education days and then worked together in real estate: a true gentleman if ever there was one. The 25th of each month was very special to us and it will always be. Merry Christmas, Edward B and Feliz Navidad.
When my daughter, Lisa Hall, attended Amelia St. School Mr. Andrews was the principal. She passed away 4 years. ago and Mr. Andrews came to her viewing after not having contact with us for thirty some years. That shows the kindness and compassion he had for his friends I will always remember his bright smile and cherry “hello”. My prayers are with you Mrs. Andrews, Jessica, Marci and Katie.
Dear Marsha and family, Wishing you all peace in this time of loss. Edward’s family continues through the love and memories of a life well lived. You are all in my prayers.
I am truly sorry for your loss and words can not express the sorrow I feel at Ed’s passing. Ed was a kind and gentle soul and I am pleased to have known him. All my thoughts and love during this time.
Ed assisted with several real estate transactions while we lived in Central VA. He was a sweet man and very easy to work with. We are contemplating a grandchild-caused relocation back to the area and searched for Ed to discover that he had passed. Our sympathies to his loved ones.
