Chuck (Charles) Robin Edwards went to be with the Lord on September 16, 2013 at the age of 47. A hard battle was fought against cancer since July of 2012 but not once did he give up on his life, nor did he question his faith. He even rejoiced with his friends and family at the hospital, throwing his hands up towards Heaven even when he did not have the strength to hold them up on his own; however, his two sons were by his side to hold them up for him. The last two days that Chuck was with us there were over 100 visitors in and out of the hospital to see him. Never have I met someone who was as well-known and loved as this man! Among the 100 were his parents (Frank and Pauline Edwards), wife (Sherry Edwards), two sons (Aaron Edwards, married to Trinity Edwards [Ruhl] and Chace Caldwell), and siblings (Dale Edwards, married to Sharon Edwards, Debbie Ballard, married to Scott Ballard, and Carol Sherrell, married to Lester Sherrell), and a host of nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly. Chuck was born April 16, 1966. His grandparents, all deceased, are Walter and Mandy Best, and Hazel and Flemming Merrit. Chuck had a passion for hunting and fishing and he shared in his passion with his two sons. Friends and family tell that he could out-fish and out-hunt anyone. He always got the monster bucks and the walls in his home prove it. For all the hunting and fishing he did, it was well deserved. Chuck was a hardworking man who owned/operated Edwards Mobile Home Transport, located out of Dixon. He had a great heart and always did the right thing. He had a wonderful, positive personality that everyone loved being around and could bring light to any bad situation. He loved spending time with his very large, very crazy, family and even on his worst days during his sickness he would invite them over for barbecues. He would even try to do the cooking! He had habits of hiding sweets around the house, making spur of the moment decisions, tricking people into purchasing “jackelope” hunting tags and giving out nicknames to any person that he met. There was nobody that he loved more than he did his Pumpkin; theirs was a true marriage of God, one that is worth admiring. Chuck and Sherry would have celebrated their 14th year of marriage on December 31, 2013. A celebration of Chuck’s life will be held at the Dixon Assembly of God on September 19, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Visitation will be September 18, 2013 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. There is no one more admirable than this man who could overcome anything. When we start to feel sad that he is no longer with us we all have to remember, this is only the beginning, not the end. We will see you again Chuck.
