Edward Furman Peoples

Edward Furman Peoples, 86, was welcomed into the loving arms of his Heavenly Father on November 12, 2016, at his home surrounded by family. Edward was born 1/12/1930 in Henderson, North Carolina to Blanche and James Peoples. He enlisted in the Navy from 1948 to 1950, then served in the Army until being honorably discharged in 1972 as Sgt First Class.

Edward was a member of Calvary Baptist Church, and worked closely with the children’s ministry and the outreach program. He was a devoted family man, who thrived on the smiles of his children and grandchildren. He was an avid patriot, who loved his Lord and country; and could always be seen wearing a flag.
