Published on June 8, 2020

Longtime educator and former member of the South Central Ohio Educational Service Center Governing Board, Fred Edgington, of Manchester, Ohio, passed away on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at the age of 84.

Edgington was born in 1936 and graduated from West Union High School, in Adams County, Ohio, in 1954. He received his Bachelor of Science Degree from Wilmington College, and his Master’s Degree from Morehead State University. In 1957, he married Carol Frame, and they were blessed with two children. His 36-year teaching career began in 1958, and proudly included teaching, coaching, and guidance counselor at Manchester High School.

Edgington joined the ESC Governing Board in 2006, and announced his resignation on June 27, 2019. His service was recognized by the board during its July 2019 meeting with a unanimously-approved Resolution of Appreciation.

“In recognition and appreciation, the board would like to thank Mr. Fred Edgington for his dedicated service and commitment to the governing board and local school districts from January 2006 to June 2019,” said ESC Board Chairman Dr. Paul Crabtree in 2019, reading from the Resolution.

Edgington passed away on Sunday, June 7, 2020, at Adams County Regional Medical Center.

“Mr. Edgington was one of the most caring people I have ever met. He always saw the good in people and celebrated everyone. As a board member he took his role seriously. He was always prepared for meetings and added questions or comments for the purpose of helping our agency succeed,” said ESC Superintendent Sandy Mers. “As a former Manchester teacher, administrator, and coach he wanted the best for his school even in his retirement. Mr. Edgington was a man of integrity, a Christian, and a mentor to so many. He will truly be missed.” 

Visitation services are scheduled for 4-8 p.m., on Thursday, June 11, at the Manchester High School Gymnasium, with social distancing precautions being observed. The funeral will be at 1 p.m. on Friday, June 12, at New Beginnings Church in Manchester.
