Hundreds packed Hendricks Chapel to remember the longtime SU Athletics staffer and Onondaga Community College athletic director who passed away suddenly.

The air was still inside Hendricks Chapel Thursday, just before the memorial service for Rob Edson began. There was scuffing of soft-soles and dress shoes on granite steps; exhaling of charter buses, signaling the arrival of dozens from the Syracuse community to pay respects.

Hendricks Chapel dean Tiffany Steinwert described Edson as “a man of great integrity, loyalty and love,” adding that longtime  Syracuse University Athletics staffer and Onondaga Community College's athletic director since 2011 “exemplified the type of person we all strive to be.”
