A few weeks ago, the sad news Flatland lifer, Lee Edwards passed away broke online. I asked his good friend, Hector Garcia to write something for the site to remember Lee by. Rest in peace Lee, thinking of all family and friends during this terrible time.
Lee Edwards. August 27, 19 – Sept 30, 2021.
It was Sept 30th, around 10am, and I was getting ready to head out the door for a barber appointment. After showering I see that I missed several calls from Jesse, my friend Lee’s oldest son. I immediately feared the worst, after learning the night before that Lee had been in the hospital for almost 2 weeks. I quickly return Jesse’s call and those fears were confirmed. “My dad’s heart just stopped, along with some other complications, and they’re trying to revive him”, Jesse shared. I immediately jumped in my truck and made my way to the hospital.
