Stephen “Randy” Edwards

November 25, 1958 ~ September 2, 2023 (age 64)


Stephen Randall Edwards (known as Randy) went to meet his Lord and Savior Saturday September 2nd 2023. He fought a lifelong battle with diabetes never once complaining over the medical hand he was dealt in this life. He was an artist, a musician, and an avid golfer, but holding a guitar was his happy place. He shared his amazing musical talents by playing the drums with the band at Hinshaw United Methodist Church. He had an ear for music, not being able to read sheet music, he could sit down and learn a song by ear in an hour or two. He was a solemn man who loved his family dearly. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Jimmy and Jeanette Edwards. And is survived by his wife Carolyn Edwards, his two daughters Nikki and Kasi Edwards, his brother Ken Edwards, his stepson and wife, Johnnie and Crystle Perdue and his granddaughter Lily Perdue.

The family is planning a “Celebration of Life” memorial for Randy in the near future and will notify friends and family through a Facebook Event notice. In leu of flowers please make a memorial donation in Randy’s name to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation at Home (

    It was my great joy and privilege to serve with Randy in Hinshaw UMC Worship Band for several years. I so admired his ability to pick up songs with little visible effort. He just KNEW how to blend with the other musicians and vocalists to make the performance so polished. He listened to recordings of our planned songs and added his own special touches. I will miss his gentle, quiet ways. He never once complained about his illness and the many struggles he faced over the years. He was an authentic Christian. While I will miss him, his impact on my life will remain for years to come. Randy, I will see you down the road.
