Gary Lynn Edson

May 29, 1953 - March 15, 2020

Gary Lynn Edson, 66, went to be with the Lord and his Heavenly Family on March 15, 2020.

He is preceded in death by his father, Loyd Edson; brothers, Michael Smith and Jeff Edson; and sister, Sharon Edson.

Mr. Edson is survived by his mother, Elsie Smith and step-father, Ralph Smith; sisters, Karen Browder and Cathy Cooper; brothers, Ron Edson and Alan Edson. He is also survived by his daughters, Jennifer Hickman, Amy Edson, Candace Edson and Lindsay Edson; his beloved grandchildren, Dallas Martin, Brianna Edson, Alyssa Edson, Elijah Edson, Brayden Rivas, Gabriel Rivas and Lucas Rivas; as well as his beautiful great-grandchildren, Gracelynn and Willow Martin. He was also loved by his aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and a host of friends, including a very special friend, Georgia “Peach” Lee.

Gary was a fun loving, charismatic Casanova who rocked this world for 66 years. He was the kind of man who loved his momma more than anything. He always had a joke for any situation, loved watching football with his friends and family and teaching his grandsons the art of sports. Gary was a man that loved hard, one who loved music and appreciated the simple things in life while being surrounded by family and friends.

“I don’t buy clothes to make me look good. I buy clothes to make them look good!” G.E.
