Edwin Dale Carlyle, Jr. of Nashville went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2020, at home with his family by his side. He was 66 years of age.
“Mr. Ed” was born on March 27, 1954 in San Antonio, Texas, the son of Edwin Dale Carlyle, Sr., and Veronica (Roni) Carlyle.
He loved to hunt and fish, watch cooking shows, shop at flea markets, and take numerous trips to Wal-Mart. He thoroughly enjoyed playing card games and participating in joker night at his church. His favorite hobby was building birdhouses like his dad. Being Papa to his grandsons was one of his greatest gifts.
