James Driscal Edwards

In Loving Memory of

James Driscal Edwards


James Driscal Edwards, 67, went home to be with his Lord June 26th, 2021.

Visitation will be held at Evans Carter Funeral Home on Thursday, July 1st between 5-7pm.

Funeral service will be held graveside at Fort White Cemetery on Friday, July 2nd at 11:00am with Pastor Tom Reaves officiating. Evans Carter is handling the funeral arrangements.

James was born in Marietta Georgia to Wilbur Edwards and Maxine Caldwell on May 24th 1954. He went to Columbia High School. James started his life farming and to this day said it was one of his favorite jobs. He enlisted in the United States Air Force for 4 years during the Vietnam war. James became an Electrician working at Florida Power and a pretty good one from everyone I speak to. James loved the Lord and was confident in his salvation, he was a member of Bible Baptist Church in Crystal River, FL. My Dad loved his family, and always told me that family was the most important thing. He was a good friend and co-worker to many people. He was a dedicated father and was always there for myself and my brother. He loved his grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them and cooking them breakfast in the mornings. He will be dearly missed.

James is preceded in death by his father, Wilbur Edwards; mother, Lorine Edwards; and mother, Maxine Caldwell.

James is survived by his sisters, Teresa Boozer and Cindy Hodge; his children, Joshua Driscal (Lori) Edwards, Jared Samuel Edwards; and grandchildren, Kyra Cancel and James Driscal Edwards II.

    I had the privilege of working with Jimmy many years ago when he worked for FPC’s System Maintenance Crew, and I was impressed with his ability to work effectively with all people. I was also impressed by his honesty and straightforward manner of speaking – you knew where you stood with Jimmy and there were no hidden agendas with him. Much later in life God allowed our paths to cross again at Bible Baptist Church, and there I saw the same honest “take me as I am” person. It was always a pleasure meeting, greeting, and reminiscing with Jimmy. It was also at this time that I got to really know him on a personal basis, and for that I am thankful. I will miss him, and I look forward to seeing him again in a better land.

    I just heard of his passing. Was so sorry to hear this. Knew him in High School. Sweet young man then I’m sure he stayed that way. Condolences to his family.
