William "Edward" Vance III, age 43, was born to William Edward Vance Jr. and Joan Vance on November 24, 1974.
Edward passed away on November 2, 2018. He was a graduate of Patterson Co-Op Class of 1993. He went on to study Mechanical Engineering at Sinclair Community College. Edward was a very active person. He loved to fish, bike ride, play basketball and photography (you never saw him without his camera). Since childhood, he had interest in building model railroads and cars. He also enjoyed working out, landscaping and taking care of his dogs. Edward's favorite past time was spending time with his family. A loving son, brother and uncle is how you could describe Edward. He would go above and beyond for his nieces and nephews.
Edward is preceded in death by his paternal grandparents William E. and Ruth Vance Sr.; maternal grandparents Fredrick Hampton and Mildred Allen; and nephew Aiden William Vance.
