SPRINGFIELD- Edward W. Voudren, 43, of Elm Street, Springfield, died on Sunday, January 17, 2021 at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield following a long illness.
Born in Greenfield on December 30, 1977, he was the son of Edward Pollard and Marjorie (Fisher) and grew up in Greenfield. His family moved to Tennessee where he attended tech school for carpentry then continued to be a mostly self-taught Master Carpenter. His skill for building came natural to him and Ed could build anything with meticulous attention to detail. As a result, he was especially skilled in finish carpentry and custom trim work.
Ed loved the outdoors, camping, hiking, four wheeling, building model cars, driving fast cars (and burning off their tires ha ha), woodworking, and especially pulling people out of ditches and snow banks with his truck. He was a jack of all trades that could do just about anything. He loved listening to music and Dead & Co was one of his favorites that got him through some hard times during the last years of his life. He was the life of the party and lived life to the fullest when he was able. Almost all that knew him have a funny or crazy story to tell that they'll never forget. Ed was daring and brave, so it is no wonder it was his dream to join the armed forces as a fighter pilot when he was younger, but life had other plans for him. He was a hardworking man who loved his family and friends and will be missed by all who knew him.
Survivors include his father, Ed Pollard of Orange; his daughters, Cheyenne Voudren and Brooke Voudren, both of Orange; his siblings, Misty Voudren, Ryan Voudren and Dustin Voudren, all of Tennessee, Ed Pollard, Isobel Black all of Orange, Samantha Voudren of Greenfield, Felicia Voudren of Orange, Jeremy Renfrew of Greenfield, Jeremy “Buddy” Voudren, David Voudren both of Greenfield, and Shannon Voudren of Bernardston; his fiancée Crystal Brewer of Orange; and many nephews and nieces.
Ed was predeceased by his mother Marjorie Fisher and his stepfather Roland Voudren.
