GORDON EDWARDS, SR. 1959 – 2020

Gordon Edwards, Sr. passed away on Sunday, October 18, 2020 in Sugar Land, Texas. He was born on September 12, 1959 to George and Dorothy Edwards.

Gordon was born in New Orleans, Louisiana and raised in Gloster, Mississippi. He gave his life to Christ at an early age and was baptized at Gloster First Baptist Church where he worshiped and served as superintendent of Sunday School.

Gordon was a quiet, intelligent child who enjoyed reading and thinking by himself. Gordon enjoyed sports and, always lean and mean, played linebacker for the Amite County Training School football team.A fond memory of one sister was all the times they played football together. He graduated from Amite County Training School in 1977 as Salutatorian of his class.  Gordon graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 1981 with a B.S. in Computer Science. He used his talent for computer networking at several companies traveling around the U.S and the world. Gordon started his career at Texaco and finished his career at Bechtel.

After fighting for several years, Gordon concluded his extraordinary battle with cancer on October 18, 2020. Gordon’s doctor proclaimed that he outlived all expectations.

Waiting in Heaven to greet Gordon are his parents and brothers, Sergeant Percy Edwards (U.S. Army Retired) and Kardel Edwards.

Left behind to cherish his memory are his sons, Gordon II, Michael Anthony, daughter, Maya Terese, grandson, Gordon Edwards III, brothers, George Jr. (DeBra), Joseph (Barbara), sisters, Dorothy (Dennis) Cox and Theresa (Robert) Jackson, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and other relatives and friends.

Sorry to hear of the loss of your love one who is my fellow classmate (Class of 1977). Just know that Earth has no sorrows that Heaven can't heal. God does all things well. Look to God when you are struggling with the lost of your father, brother, uncle and/or friend. God is able to keep you. Gordon is in Heaven with his new body (one that is better than the one he had in his football years) where he will experience no more pain, nor sorrow. He will be missed. Rest in Peace Gordon.
