Memorial

Harrison Joseph Edwards Memorial

Born and raised in Milton, Massachusetts, Harry graduated magna cum laude from Suffolk University. During his eight-year career at Takeda Pharmaceuticals, he rose from college intern to Senior Analyst on their Marketing Effectiveness team. Through steadfast diligence, a positive and solutions-oriented mindset, and the fortitude to tackle nearly impossible time constraints, Harry earned the trust and high-regard of his colleagues literally across the globe. A highlight of his work that brought the greatest inner-rewards was hearing the stories from people who had benefited from his company’s oncology medications.

He was passionate about music and connecting with friends. He studied saxophone in middle and high school, and with an amazing ear and acumen, taught himself the guitar and keyboard. Harry loved to collaborate with friends (including his cousin, our very own Mr. Fro!), writing, rapping and producing original music. Few things in Harry’s life beat his joyful adventures with friends when attending outdoor festivals like Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Bonnaroo.

Harry’s vibrant personality, fast wit & clever humor, fun-loving nature, passion for music, and loyalty to friends and family will never be forgotten. He will be dearly missed.

This memorial was created to express the passion, creativity, and dedication that Harry gained through his love for music, and offer it our students who might otherwise might not have financial access to the quality music education provided at the Institute of Music for Children.
