Dr. Sanford Howard Edberg
EDBERG: Dr. Sanford Howard Edberg, born June 6, 1931, in New York City, passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, April 29, 2018, at the age of 86. Beloved husband of the late Reva (Bladowsky) Edberg. He was a beloved father of Jacqueline (Yvan) Edberg Bergeron and Dr. Deborah (Rick) Edberg Wood; grandfather of Madeleine, Isabel and Ethan. He is also survived by his sister Erma (Herb) Edberg Hoffman and countless friends. He served in the U.S. Navy as Lieutenant Commander in the Medical Corp from 1960 to 1964. Dr. Edberg had a distinguished career as a pathologist for 40 years at Suburban General Hospital in Bellevue, Pa. During his time there, he was appointed Coroner of Allegheny County by Governor Dick Thornburg in the 1980s. He was an unapologetically honest man and he never said a thing he didn’t mean and never did a thing he didn’t want to do. He was a brilliant doctor with a sharp and sometimes biting sense of humor. He was fiercely proud of his family and was much beloved by all. He will be well remembered and sorely missed.
