Allen Lee Edwards

A bundle of joy name Allen Lee Edwards was born April 28, 1999 to Anthony Ellison and Rolonda Edwards. He went home to be with the Lord on May 4, 2019.

Allen was known for always having a smile on his face, looking just like his mother. Allen loved to make music from a young age of 5 when his pawpaw bought his first drum set. Allen was affectionately known as “son son”, “Big AL”, or “Bear”.

Allen did not allow any harm to come to his family. He always was the one to jump in harm’s way when it came to his family.

Bear is preceded in death by maternal great grandmother Rosie Ross, uncle Dante Hill, and bestfriend TyKeem F. Eskridge.

He leaves to cherish his memories; grandmothers Rosalind Edwards and Rita Harrington, parents Rolanda Edwards and Anthony Ellison, siblings Alexis Edwards, and Alonda Ellison, aunts Rochelle Ross, Renee Yarbrough, and Odessa Edwards, special aunts Renata Belcher, Mahogany Scott, and Alexis Conley, also a host of uncles, cousins, and other relatives and friends.

  2. I am extending my heartfelt sympathy for your loss of Allen.I don’t know what you are going through but Jesus felt the pain and sorrow that death brings when his friend Lazarus died. He cares then and He still cares now. John 1133,35-38.

    To the Edwards family. My heart is with you and your family at this time of your loss. There is comfort in knowing God’s promises about the resurrection hope. (Acts 24:15) and (John 5:28,29) In the past God has resurrected humans and He is eager to do it again because He hates death. (Mark 5:41-43) It is not God’s purpose originally for mankind to grow old, get sick and die. To learn more about God’s promises go to JW.ORG. There are online Bible study lessons featured and more. Love Your Neighbor Irish J. Richardson
