Homer Edwards

Homer Edwards, 82, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away peacefully Sunday, June 19, 2022 at his home surrounded by his loving family.

 

A native of Yancey County, Homer was born on October 06, 1939 to the late Emery Edwards and Minnie Adkins Edwards.

 

Homer loved the Lord and was a faithful child of God. He had lived in this area for the last 45 years. He loved spending time with his family and taking care of needs around the home. He formerly worked in construction and had excellent carpentry skills. Homer enjoyed building things with his grandchildren, and he passed his knowledge down to them and his son. He also liked going to flea markets. Homer will be remembered as being gentle, patient, and loving, and he maintained these traits throughout his whole illness.

 

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by a son-in-law, Hollis Faw; and eight siblings, Lloyd Edwards, Coy Edwards, Boyd Edwards, Creed Edwards, Kenneth Edwards, Mildred Adkins, Pearl Fender, and Rose Runion.

 

He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Carolyn Edwards; four children, Jeffrey Edwards, Angela Edwards, Kelley Edwards, and Donna Faw; and four grandchildren, Joshua Faw, Benjamin Faw, Sarah Faw, and Hannah Faw.

 

The family will receive friends on Tuesday, June 21, 2022 from 2:00 until 3:00 p.m. at Beam Funeral Service. Homer will be laid to rest in Murphy’s Chapel Cemetery.
