Edward Eugene Humphreys, 75, of McKeesport, died January 23, 2017, with his sister by his side. She was there for him when he needed her, and was his best friend. Beloved son of the late Edward R. and Isabelle C. McBride Humphreys, their first born. They were truly blessed to have a wonderful son. He was their life, and he gave them nothing but happiness. His life was fulfilled with the love that he got from his parents. He was a kind hearted person and everyone loved him. He always had a joke to tell to make someone smile or laugh. He loved playing the guitar and going to the park. He worked for Francis McBride Wall Coverings as a wall paper hanger, and served in the U.S. Navy. He had a heart of gold and a wonderful soul, and a kind, loving, and sweet spirit. With his laugh and his smile, he helped ease the pain and suffering of many. Now he is at peace, free from his own pain and suffering. When you love someone, every moment is shadowed by the fear of loss. The more you loved, the more you feel the loss. His death leaves a giant hole in the hearts of his many family members and friends. Today we are not saying goodbye, but only saying we will see you again. He is survived by his brother, Steven Humphreys of McKeesport and his sister, Sally Humphreys of McKeesport, also by his beloved pets, Max, Abigal, and Maggie, who loved him with all their hearts. The Yorkies were the joy of his life. Friends will be received in the Hunter Funeral Home, Inc., 1600 Coursin Street, McKeesport, PA 15132 on Friday, January 27, 2017, from 2-4 & 6-8 PM, where a Blessing will be celebrated by the Rev.
