Terri, as he was affectionately called, retired from the former International Harvester, now Navistar, with over 30 years of service. He was a dedicated member of Trydestone Missionary Baptist Church, where he served on the trustee board. In recent years, if he was not at home, you could find him at the church cooking and humming among other things.
Terri greeted everyone he met with a smile. His dimples were contagious. Terri enjoyed watching NASCAR. His hobbies included fishing and gun collecting.
On June 27, 2018, the Lord called Terri home. He is preceded in death by his mother Betty Edwards, his aunt Loretta Clark, brother-in-law James Whitfield, and sister-in-law Gwendolyn Edwards.
