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.
