Edwards, Nathan

Friday, June 12, 2020

Nathan Jerrell Edwards was born March 10, 1989, in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 

He was a 2008 graduate of Hixson High School.  Nathan dedicated his life to serving others and giving encouragement to those who needed it.  He was smart, witty, compassionate, loving, dedicated, endearing, and innovative.  Nathan always saw the positive in people.  He would brighten up the room with his smile and always made people laugh even when they didn’t want to laugh!  Nathan made an imprint on people’s hearts by encouraging them to achieve their best and believe they were made to do something great.  He was very goal oriented and was in the beginning stages of investing in his first business. 

Among those who preceded Nathan in death include his mother, Tarva Candace Edwards-Avery; grandparents, Haywood and Yvonne Edwards, Jr.; grandmother, Sylvia Paris; and step-grandfather, Charles Kenneth Toliver; aunt, Geralyn Drew; and cousin, Timothy Rivers. 

We were all devastated to hear that on Tuesday morning, May 26, 2020 in Panama City, Florida, our beloved son lost his life at the age of 31 years. 

Cherishing his memories include his fiancée, Miranda Steele, their 7 month-old son, Cairo Edwards, her 11-year old daughter, Audrey Myrick; his father and stepmother, Keldon and Kimberly Brown of Acworth, GA; grandfather, George Brown of Chattanooga, TN; step-grandparents, James and Doris Barnes of Richmond, VA; brothers, Jeremy Rivers, Kahlil Brown, and Kahri Brown, all of Acworth, GA; sisters, Amber Avery of Jacksonville, FL, Miranda Dunn of Nashville, TN, and Kahlaia Brown of Acworth, GA; uncles, Haywood Edwards, III, Lebron  Edwards, both of Chattanooga, TN, and Jerome Edwards of Washington, D.C.; aunts, Kimberly (John) Boyer of Chattanooga, TN, Chanel Brown of Goodlettsville, TN, Shjonda Romero of Birmingham, AL, and Vivian Edwards; his cousins, Jessica, Trabion, Yvonne, Christian, JaCurrian, Tony, Temeka, Isaiah, Wesley, Destiny, and Timothy; and a host of other cousins; relatives and friends.

Nathan will lie in state on Saturday, June 13, from 12:30-5 p.m. at Taylor Funeral Home. 

A family service will be on Sunday, June 14, at 1 p.m. in the chapel with John Boyer giving words of comfort.
