Robert Davis Edwards

September 8, 1953October 2, 2020

Robert Davis Edwards, son of Byron Marion Edwards, Jr. and Doris Davis Edwards, passed away October 2, 2020 from complications of pneumonia. He was 67 years old, and he is survived by his three older sisters, Doris Anne Edwards, Roberta Edwards Faucette and Christine Edwards Richardson and his brother, Byron Malet Edwards III.

Robert Davis Edwards was a true individual and lived his life as he chose! He attended Schneider Elementary School, Hand Junior High and Dreher High School and he received his GED High School Equivalency in 1971. According to his brother, Byron, Davis may have been the most intelligent and talented sibling in the family, but he always chose to blaze his own path in life, using his talents how he saw fit. He remained true to himself until the end.

Robert Davis was known by many as “Davy, Dave, and/or Davis”, as well as Robert Davis, and lived most of his life in the Columbia area where he had a wide and diverse “Family of Friends”, many of whom were amazed by his friendship, loyalty and personal generosity. As the baby in the family, he was loved by his mother and he loved his mother very much in return. We all hope they are together again now and enjoying each other again – perhaps playing cards and making origami.

Arrangements have been made for a private service and burial. Please feel free to leave online condolences. They would be much appreciated by not only his family but also his extended “family of friends”.

Davy and I spent 7 glorious summers together on Lake Murray catching snakes, turtles, frogs and even a few fish. Watching him revolt at the Citadel Military Camp was quite a sight. When Davy came in there was no question who the smartest guy in the room was.

Brent, Brent, its 5 AM. Let's go fishing.

Davy was one of my best friends for many years, although I hadn't heard from him in about 25 years. He was a good guy and we had some terrific times together. So terribly sorry to hear this sad news...
