It is with great sadness that we share the news of Blake M. Edwards passing on July 13th. Blake, “BME” lived his life enthusiastically, authentically, and with much courage. He was always loyal and generous to his family and friends. Blake was as handsome as ‘Superman’, and his outward appearance and good looks mirrored the goodness on his inside. Always eager to please, Blake went above and beyond for those he cared for and never turned down a request to help. He was sensitive, and compassionate. Blake had a passion for his jeep, movies with his family, music, Christmas, and his dog, Domino who loved him back even more!
Blake made everyone he came in contact with feel special, heard and appreciated. He was a tremendous athlete and excelled at every sport he tried. We are thankful for Dan Hubble and his many years of mentoring and support. We are also grateful that he loved and was loved by Haley and her daughter, Ava. Blake was cherished by so many and his presence made everything brighter. We are at peace knowing his spirit lives on.
Blake is dearly loved by his mother, Linda Couch, family including Russell Couch, Garrett Couch, and Alex Barker. He is also loved by his aunt, Laura VanOstran, uncle, John Bafford, cousins Travis Ray, B.J. Ray and Joe Bafford, his father, Mike Edwards, his grandmother Norma Edwards, and extended family from his place of birth, Lincoln, IL.

Funeral Home Address: Roswell Funeral Home, 950 Mansell Rd, Roswell, GA 30076
