Michael Douglas Edwards was born of to Doug and
Loraine Edwards on July 25th, 1984 in Moore County, North Carolina.
He was gifted
with two wonderful older brothers, Joseph and Lucas.
Mike grew up with the childhood every boy should
have. Spending most of his life living outside of Whispering Pines,
enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, riding motorbikes
and four-wheelers, playing computer games, practicing his marksmanship,
swimming, and playing role-playing games.
Mike had a jolly charm and natural charisma that
grew on everyone that came to know him. He possessed a quick wit
always made him the center of conversation in a group. He could tell
a tall-tale or joke that was sure to make everyone present laugh
and smile. Michael was also the first one to offer help when something
needed to be
done or a friend needed help.
Unlike so many teenagers, Michael knew what
he wanted to be "when
he grew-up". Michael wanted to be a master chef. He would often
prepare appetizers or delicacies that would bring a little class
to any gathering or party. When Michael graduated Union Pines High
School, he enrolled in the
Culinary Arts Program at Sandhills Community College. He earned high
marks the first year of the program, and it made him proud.
