Perry Edwards

Perry Lee Edwards, the only child of Lois and Synada Cherry, was born December 27, 1937, in Tyler, Texas, but moved to Amarillo, Texas at a young age. He gained his wings on November 26, 2020. 

Perry worked at Cookbook Bakery for ten years and then at ASARCO, where he retired after 20 years, so he and his wife could help take care of this mother. Perry married the love of his life, Brenda Joyce Edwards, on May 23, 1982. They were happily married for 38 years until God called him home.

He loved fishing, cooking, working with his hands, and tending to his yard and plants. He also loved playing dominoes, watching Westerns, sports, and watching the News. He especially enjoyed taking care of his other love; his dog, "Koda".

He is preceded in death by his parents: Lois and Synada Cherry, son: Joe Kemp, Jr., two grandchildren and one son-in-law: Michael Williams.

He leaves to mourn, his loving wife: Brenda Edwards, twelve children: Cassandra "Kay" Edwards, Belinda (Daryl) Cole, Donna Williams, Vanessa (Gene) Graves, Perry Wells all of Amarillo, Texas, Carla Walker of Lubbock, Texas, Yolanda Walker, Regina (Nate) Green of Amarillo, Texas, Patrick Edwards of Pampa, Texas, Yvonne Edwards, Renee Edwards of Peachtree, Georgia, Maurice Kemp, Angela Kemp of Amarillo, Texas, thirty-three grandchildren, thirty great grandchildren, special friends: Lamont Smith, David Cornelius, and Vann Johnson.
