Jim Edwards

Rev. James L. Edwards, 71, of Antwerp passed away at 6:30 am, Wednesday,
January 19, 2011 at his residence.

Jim was born in Berwyn, WV on January 24, 1939, a son of the late Ruby
"Lake" (Turner) and Steve  Edwards.

Jim felt blessed beyond measure, because he asked Jesus Christ to come
into his heart.  Shortly after, in 1957, Jim received another blessing.  
He married his wife Lorene.  They were married for 40 beautiful years,
until her death in 1998  The Lord also blessed Jim, allowing him to
serve two great churches.  The  Second Baptist Church of Defiance for 20
years and The First Baptist Church of Antwerp for 30 years.  Jim's
prayer was to praise God for all he had given him and now the greatest
gift of allowing him to come home with Christ.

Jim will be sadly missed by his daughters, Susan (Douglas) Zeller of
Antwerp & Pam (Ric) Casilli of Lynn, MA; son, Tim of Antwerp;  sister,
June Hale of Mark Center; brothers, Bert of Bristol, VA & Harold of
Weston, OH; grandchildren, Steven & Nichole & great grandchildren, Myah,
Olivia & Ramon.
