The Obituary for Mr. Dalton Edwards


Dalton Wayne Edwards

September 9, 1991 – February 16, 2019

Dalton Wayne Edwards, a resident of Auburn, passed away Saturday night, February 16, 2019, of injuries sustained from an accident. He was 27.

Dalton Edwards was born and raised in Auburn, Alabama.  He was a 2010 graduate of Auburn High School, where he was a member of 2009 and 2010 state championship baseball teams. He exemplified “living the dash”, cherishing every moment with those he loved and living each moment to the fullest.   His smile could light up any room and lighten any moment.  As an avid outdoorsman, you were most likely to find him in the woods or by a pond fulfilling his passion of hunting and fishing. Dalton was always quick with a compliment and to make sure no one left his presence without them knowing just how much he loved and cared for them.

Dalton was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather Owen Edwards, and his maternal grandparents Herman and Ramona Nipper.

Surviving relatives include his parents Mike and Vicky Edwards, his sister Mallory (fiancé Jonathan Hendrix), and his brother Zack Edwards all of Auburn; his grandmother Judy Edwards of Lincoln, Alabama and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

A celebration of Dalton’s life will be held at 2:00 P.M. (CST) on Wednesday, February 20, 2019, at Cornerstone Church on Hamilton Road. Steve Boston will officiate the service.  The family will receive friends following the service.
