Jeffrey Lynn Edwards, of Belleview, Fla., passed away peacefully at home early Saturday morning, March 16, 2013, after an extended illness.
He was born in Tampa, Fla., on Dec. 7, 1947, to the late Warren and Jean Claire Edwards.

Members of the Indian Lake High School’s Class of ’65 are saddened by his passing, and many have very fond memories of Jeff’s young years “at the lake.”
