Wilbur Bruce Edwards was born on March 22, 1915 in Philadelphia, PA. to Lawrence Crawford Edwards & Charlotte (Sweet) Edwards. A lover of animals, he spent his childhood in the country surrounded by the nature he would always remember. At age 24 he married Emily Golden Clark and they had two daughters, Dolores and Nancy.

Bruce (he went by his middle name) began working as a machinist at The Midvale Steel Co., and helped to manufacture the weapons for World War II. He became extremely proficient with tools and crafting things. He built the main staircase in his house, along with the backyard patio and the cabinets in his kitchen. During his time at the "steel mill" as he called it, he was stricken with Glaucoma and subsequently had to have one of his blue eyes replaced with a glass replica. Nevertheless, he continued to work hard and provide for his family.

In his later years, Bruce enjoyed spending quiet time at home and going fishing. He said that the serene ambiance of being near the water reminded him of his childhood.
