Steve, son of the late Ben Owen Edmunds and Sara Louise Lane Edmunds, was born February 12, 1951 in Phenix City, Alabama. After high school, he began a career as a Maintenance Engineer with Dolly Madison, where he faithfully worked for over 30 years. After retiring from Dolly Madison, Steve kept working as a Maintenance Engineer and began working in the Real Estate Division of W.C. Bradley, where he worked for over 10 years.
Steve loved to hunt; take trips to the Smokey Mountains; and spending time working in the yards. He had a tremendous talent with construction and built several houses through the years. Steve loved spending time drinking his coffee in the mornings on the porch, and having good quality time with his family, dog, and cat. His family remembers Steve as a man that knew a lot of people, never met a stranger, and believed in “working for what you had.”
