Wesley Blake Edwards

November 26, 1964 ~ April 15, 2018 (age 53)

Wesley Blake Edwards, 53, of Fuquay Varina, N.C. and formerly of Robbins, N.C., died on Sunday, April 15, 2018 at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, surrounded by his immediate family and close friends.

Blake, an exceptionally warm, engaging, and loving father, husband, son, brother, and friend will be deeply missed. His smile and joyful spirit was infectious. A hard-working and dedicated electrician, he made and maintained many friends through his years of work and his membership in the IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers), an association that represents approximately 750,000 active members and retirees who work in numerous fields, including utilities, construction, telecommunications, broadcasting, manufacturing, railroads and government. In addition to his family and close friends, the IBEW meant a great deal to Blake.

Blake is survived by a daughter, Patricia Ann Edwards, of Fuquay Varina, NC; his mother, Catherine Wade Edwards of Robbins, NC; a brother, John Reid Edwards of Chapel, Hill, NC.; and a sister, Katherine Irene Edwards Frankel of Baltimore, MD. He is predeceased by his wife, Debbie Edwards and his father, Wallace Reid Edwards.

The family will welcome friends on Friday, April 27, 2018, 6-8 p.m., followed by a memorial service on Saturday, April 28 at 11 a.m., at Williford Funeral Home.
