David EDWARDS Obituary
EDWARDS, David David Edwards won his 12 year battle with cancer by walking away on October 14, 2017. Dave was born on April 17, 1959 in Syracuse, NY and spent his childhood in Henrietta, NY. He attended college at Southwest Missouri State in Springfield, MO. He worked at Johnson Controls for the past 22 years as Lighting Design Engineer. Dave loved gardening, ultimate Frisbee and playing golf with his pals from the neighborhood. He particularly loved playing tennis with his daughter, Kelly. He was at his best during those matches. Dave was preceded in death by his loving mother, Barbara Edwards of Rotonda West, FL. He leaves behind his loving and dedicated wife of 30 years, Carolyn Edwards; his daughter, Kelly Edwards; his father, Corky Edwards of Rotonda West, FL and his sister and her husband, Jacqueline and Tommy Walker of Dallas, GA. Dave also left behind Mary Hannah, mother-in-law, multiple nieces and nephews, and friends too numerous to mention. Dave and his family thank the great medical team at Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta and especially Dr. David Lawson, Dr. Ragini Kudchakar, Necia Maynard and Susan Maio. This dedicated team extended not only the length, but the quality of Dave's life. A celebration of David's life will be held on Wednesday, October 18, 2017 at 10:30am at Saint Peter Chanel Catholic Church in Roswell, GA, with a reception to follow. David's family will receive friends on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at Northside Chapel Funeral Directors in Roswell, GA, from 6:00 to 8:00pm. The family requests that in lieu of flowers contributions be made to the Winship Melanoma and Skin Cancer Fund at Winship Cancer Institute of Emory University, 1762 Clifton Rd. NR, Suite 1400, Atlanta, GA, 30322.
