Mitchell Charles Edwards

Mitchell Charles Edwards, age 47, of Alabaster, passed away unexpectedly at home on Dec. 18. He was born on March 16, 1967.
Mitch was a graduate of Thompson High School and the University of Montevallo.
He was a past Chapter President and past Southeast District Chair of the Public Relations Society of America. He was Sr. Vice President of Marketing, Sales, and Business Development at High Ground Solutions. Prior to that, he was the Director of Communications for the State Department of Education.
Mitch was the much cherished son of Jet and Clarence Edwards who taught him to love Jesus and indulged his quirkiest whims. How quirky, you ask? His request for a Napoléon Bonaparte costume was met with a quick stitch by Jet and a salute from Clarence as Mitch made his way out the door to school – on a day not designated for dress up.
A born leader, even out of Jet’s homemade uniform, Mitch achieved much success in his short life. On the stage and in the boardroom, Mitch was a mover and shaker with many accolades. The most prized role on his resume, however, was Dad.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Jet Edwards. He is survived by his wife, Lori Mercer Edwards; son, Andrew Edwards; daughter, Hannah Edwards; stepchildren, Chris Pinto and Harper Lucas; sister, Tammy Roy; aunts, Stella Seagle (Earl) and Lib Hickman; and his loving Jack Russell terrier, Rowdy.
To know Mitch was to love him as many friends and family can attest.  We will miss his talent, quick wit and great hair.
Visitation will be held from 9-11 a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 23 at Rockco Funeral Home (Montevallo), with the funeral service to begin at 11 a.m. Bro. Jeff Gillam will officiate, and burial will be at Cedar Grove Cemetery in Maylene.
