In Loving

Michael Ross Edwards

October 3, 1950-October 29, 2019

Michael Ross Edwards, age 69, of Highland Village, TX passed away on October 29, 2019.  He was born October 3, 1950 in Detroit, MI and was a loving son to his mother Delorise Gilliam and father Kenneth Edwards.  This past summer, he and his wife Carol (Booth) Edwards celebrated 47 years of marriage.  He received a BBA in Management from Eastern Michigan, an MA in Management and Supervision from Central Michigan and an MBA from the University of Michigan.  He was a highly sought after consultant specializing in Technology and Outsourcing for the last 18 years.  Prior to that, he was a Director at EDS for 15 years overseeing Deployment Services as well as Manager of Systems Engineering for Ford Motor Company for nearly 10 years.

Mike loved camping, cartoons and action movies.  He was an avid runner completing multiple marathons and half-marathons, as well as coaching other runners with Luke’s Locker for over 14 years where he was famously known for his whistle!  He loved hockey – whether watching his beloved Red Wings or getting thrown into the penalty box during beer league.  His hospitality and generosity were well known – whether finding any excuse to host a party where he could grill hot dogs and hamburgers or simply playing outside with the neighborhood kids.  Every person who had the pleasure of meeting Mike is better off for it.  He is survived by his wife, Carol; his daughter, Diana Edwards; his son, Brian Edwards; his sister Cheryl (Edwards) Horgan and her husband John; his Brother and Sister-in-Law, Ed and Tia Booth; Nephews, Michael Horgan and his wife, Sarah; Billy Horgan and his wife Kelsey, Robert Booth, Danny Booth and his wife Kelly; and Cousins, Charron and Butch, and his wife Joan.

Family, friends and others whose lives Mike touched are invited to Bridgeway Church – 8201 FM 407 Copper Canyon, TX 75077 on Saturday, November 2nd for a visitation from 1:30-2:30pm followed by a memorial service to honor Mike’s life.
