Frank Edge Obituary

Frank Terry Edge, 96, died at home Friday, January 12, 2024.  He was born in Eastover, NC to parents, Robert Carson and Bessie Breece Edge.  He had a sister, Clara, and a brother, Bernice, whose memories of their childhoods together are cherished.  After graduating from Central High School of Eastover, he served in the Navy until the end of World War II.

Frank began his career as a brick mason, but very soon transitioned into the construction and realty business.  He was an active force in the Cumberland County area, belonging to the North Carolina Realtors Association and regularly attending the Christian Businessmen's Luncheon for the entirety of its existence.  During his 20 years in the field, he built and sold hundreds of homes while making as many friends.  In 1970, he bought the Tropical Motel and managed it until its sale in 2022.  All told, he worked his entire life and loved it.

Terry fell in love with the love of his life, Doris Elizabeth Thornton, and they married February 16, 1950.  They had four children, Terry Wayne, Deborah Sue, John Robert, and Dorothy Marie.  He is predeceased by his wife, Doris; son, John; and sister, Clara McCabe.  He is survived by his son, Terry; daughters, Deborah Creech and Dorothy Cain; brother, Burnice and his wife, Edith; sister-in-law, Melvene Thornton; 10 grandchildren; and seven great grandchildren.  Terry was a lifelong family man and a very devout and humble Christian all his life and would minister its beliefs every opportunity he had and he had many.

The family will receive friends from 10 to 10:45 a.m. on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 at Jernigan-Warren Funeral Home, followed by a service in the Mausoleum Chapel at Lafayette Memorial Park on Ramsey Street at 11 a.m.
