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.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, March 11, 2020, from 5:00-7:00 pm at Oxley Heard Funeral Home.

A service to remember and celebrate Davy�s life will be held Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 11:00 am, at Yulee Baptist Church, with Pastor Doug Sides officiating.

He will be laid to rest at 1:00 pm at the Jacksonville National Cemetery with full military honors.

Pall Bearers will be Scott Kirkland, Jason Lathrop, Kyle Edwards, Jack Webb, Kyle Pikula, David Adams, Corey Poore, Craig Winters, and Matt Lee

The family has asked in lieu of flowers, please send donations to Yulee Baptist Church Wheelchair Fund.


My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you mourn the loss of Davy. He was always such a great man and cousin, always enjoyed seeing him at the annual Hickox Family Reunion.

My sincerist condolences to all who knew Davy. He had a heart filled with the love of Jesus. I loved him as a dear friend. I actually considered him a family member. He will be truly missed. I pray that God give you peace and the strength to face the sad days ahead. Time will lessen the pain. But, the memories will never dim.

Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. He was such a good brother in law and friend and a Christian man we will always remember the last time we all eat red velvet cake and he had to show us the beautiful bowls I never knew there was so many different types of wood he will truly be missed but the Lord will give you the strength you need day by day love in Christ and treasure the memories

There is/was no one like Davy. He was our friend from the first time I met him, he was my neighbor, friend, my confidant. We sold his woodwork together, worked in our yards together, took vacations together, rode motorcycles together, cooked together and the list goes on. There will never be another person like him. I�m am going to miss him deeply..

Thoughts and prayers for the family.

Our deepest condolences!

my friend davy was the guy that never said no so many times calling him after hours his heart was all about helping others espicially his hometown community he served our country keeping us safe made it back home and served his hometown keeping us cool and warm ,, guys like davy in my opinion are called a dying breed lets honor davey by using his theory of life to be similar to the way he treated all of us

My deepest sympathy to you all; just hold those �precious memories� in your heart.

Thoughts and prayers to the family. Really glad our paths were able to cross again at our class reunion for class of 73. Our journeys were alike in many ways. We both retired from the military life, and we both lost a daughter. Rest in peace Davy.

My thoughts and prayers are for his daughter Becky, she loved her father so much.

Davy was a joy to know along with his family. As a teenager I met him and his family and I consider it a blessing to have known him all these years. He was a family man, a Christian and honest businessman. He is �home� and we will see him again. My prayers are with his family.
