On the serene morning of February 3, 2024, surrounded by the warmth of his home, Bobby Ray Edwards peacefully departed this world. Born on March 1, 1947, in Anderson, South Carolina, he was the cherished son of the late John Henry and Daisy Edwards.

Bobby's journey began in Anderson, where he completed his high school education at West Side High School before embarking on a remarkable professional career. He started his career at Boston Gas Company before transitioning to serve the community as a Transit driver for the Massachusetts Transit Authority in Boston, Massachusetts, leaving an indelible mark on the lives of those he encountered.

After retirement from The Transit Authority, Bobby and his beloved wife, Idella Edwards, relocated to Charlotte, NC, where he continued his dedicated service, working for the Charlotte Mecklenburg School. There, he contributed his time and efforts until he retired once again, leaving behind a legacy of commitment and compassion.

His legacy of love and commitment extends beyond his professional achievements. Bobby shared 37 beautiful years of marriage with his beloved wife, Idella Edwards. Together, they formed a blended union that became the foundation for a loving family.

He is survived by his devoted wife, Idella Edwards, five children: Levetta Williams( Rodney), Terese Hill (Tammie), Chris Hill (Kenya), Rob Edwards, and Denise Edwards. Bobby's impact is further evident in the hearts of his ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, who will forever carry his spirit.

In addition to his immediate family, Bobby leaves behind a network of love that extends to his brother Grady (Louanne) Edwards, sisters Essie Edwards and Betha Norman, and numerous nieces and nephews. Their shared memories and the love they experienced together will serve as a testament to the profound impact Bobby had on those fortunate enough to know him.

Bobby Ray Edwards will be remembered not only for his professional achievements but also for the kindness, warmth, and love he showered upon his family and friends. As we bid farewell to a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend, let us celebrate a life well-lived and find solace in the enduring memories that will forever linger in our hearts. May he rest in eternal peace.
