Spring Hill

William Hendley Edwards of Spring Hill, TN, passed away Saturday, January 29, 2022 at the age of 74, at Maury Regional Medical Center from Covid pneumonia.

William was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend, but especially a Christian. He graduated in 1965 from Hay Long High School in Mt. Pleasant, TN where he was an outstanding basketball player. He spent many years helping his Dad and uncles working on their farms. Immediately after graduating he joined the U.S. Air Force, where he spent the next four years, including a year in Viet Nam. William loved to hunt, fish, woodwork and just help others. He retired from Bellsouth after 32 years, last job being a project manager. There was really nothing that he couldn’t do, “Or At Least Try ---Measure Once, Cut Twice”!!! For several years he and Phil had a “Honey Do” business called “Two Fat Men and a Truck”! They helped many people in the community. William was a longtime member of the Spring Hill Church of Christ, where he served on the security team, as well as many other works. He loved to teach young boys and girls how to shoot a gun, a bow and arrow and how to deer hunt and fish. He was very adamant with the children about gun safety.

William is survived by his wife of 39 years: Paula Wood Edwards; son: William Brian (Lydia) Edwards; daughter: Amy Melissa Hawkins; son: Mark Mason; sisters: Linda (Charles) Morton and Diane (Phil) Bennett; grandchildren: Joey and Brian Anthony Edwards; three great grandchildren, several nieces, nephews, cousins and many friends.
