William J. Edmunds, 64, died peacefully at his home Wednesday, October 8, after a short bout with cancer.
He was the son of William J Edmunds, Sr. and Ruth Blue. He was a graduate of Framingham High School and had attended Columbia University and Framingham State for his undergraduate degree. He received his MS from Boston University.

He married his childhood sweetheart, Audrey King, in 1966 and had a long and very happy marriage until the day he died. They moved to Holliston in 1974.

He worked for 17 years at The Middlesex News as Chief Photographer, also doing concert reviews, the Road Warrior column and various other contributions. He was a popular teacher at Rhode Island School of Photography and Gibbs College and was well loved by his students. While at RISP he received a grant to start The Elmwood Ave Project; a program designed to help enrich an underprivileged community in Providence through photography. He held various other positions including Avid ProNet and The Tab. He started a business in 1998 called Ocean Park Photography which combined two big parts of his life: Maine and photography. He was busy selling at art shows, local Maine art stores, and online until shortly before his death.

He is survived by his loving wife Audrey, and his adoring children Blake and Tarcia. He is also survived by four grandchildren who meant the world to him. He will be terribly missed. The impact of Bill Edmunds upon those who knew him cannot be summed up in these few words.

Calling hours will be held at the Chesmore Funeral Home, 854 Washington Street, Holliston www.chesmorefuneralhome.com, Saturday from 5:00 – 7:00 followed by the funeral service at 7:00 p.m. Donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, 30 Speen Street, Framingham.
