He served as a school board member in the Mulberry and Paris school districts and also served on the Paris Boys and Girls Club Board of Directors, where he spent many years coaching young men and women. Early in his career he worked for Dixie Cup for over 9 years. He worked side by side for 38 years with his wife, Marsha owning and operating several restaurants, including the Mulberry Dairy Dip, Tastee Freeze, the Mug and Jug in Ozark and the Dari-Delite in Paris and Ozark.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by three sisters, Wanda Dean, Marie Vickery and Sue Ann Wilson and one brother, Jesse Lee Edwards.
