Davy F. Edwards
Davy F. Edwards, age 64, of Yulee, Florida, passed away Monday afternoon, March 9, 2020, at Baptist Medical Center. Born September 8, 1955 at Travis Air Force Base in Vacaville, California, he was one of six children to the late Richard �Ed� Edwards and Yvonne Edwards.
Davy graduated from West Nassau High School in 1973. He then joined the US Navy where he served his country here and abroad for twenty years. After his military retirement, he returned to Florida to begin working for his family�s HVAC company, Ed�s Comfort Solutions, until he started his own HVAC company, Ed�s Heating & Air. He also started Dave�s Custom Woodworks, where he crafted beautiful pieces of furniture, kitchen ware, and pens.
Davy was a loving father, son, and brother. He had a heart for people that was evident in the way he gave so freely with his time and generosity. He deeply loved his family and friends, and gave of himself selflessly to all. He had a passion for woodworking and pen turning, and gave away more than he sold. He loved to make people happy and truly had a passion for life.
But most importantly, Davy loved Jesus and his faith was unflinching.
Dave was a long-time member of Yulee Baptist Church where he faithfully served the Lord.
He is preceded in death by his Dad, Richard �Ed� Edwards, a sister Debbie Armstrong, a brother Ricky Edwards, and a daughter Jennifer Crane. Davy leaves behind three children, Becky (Ben) Sinclair, Lauren Edwards, and Russ Price. He leaves behind three siblings, Phyllis (Chris) Lathrop, Tommy Edwards, and Mike (Marty) Edwards. He also leaves behind his Mom, Yvonne Edwards, and several nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.
