David Edwards, age 60, of Kansas City, KS, and formerly of McIntosh, MN, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, May 16th. A family service will be held at a later date. Arrangements are with Carlin Family Funeral Service of Fosston and messages of condolence may be sent at


David Leonard Edwards was born at Fort Ord in California on October 30, 1959 to parents Duane Leonard Edwards and Loretta Agnes (Whitaker) Edwards. David, along with his family, grew up in many places overseas, including Germany and Panama. He attended grade school and high school while living in McIntosh until the family moved to Kansas City in 1977. He graduated from Turner High School in Kansas City. After high school, David worked a variety of jobs in the local Kansas City area, one of which was Concrete Stamping which he enjoyed and loved talking about.


While growing up in McIntosh prior to moving to Kansas City, he enjoyed snowmobiling and hanging out with his friends. To his friends he was known as “Little Piney”. He spent a lot of time during the summer at his grandparent’s cabin at Twin Lakes, swimming, and fishing. David always teased his older sister about their ages as they were 11 months apart. David and Rae Ann would be the same age each year for 20 days. David was always up for an adventure!


David is survived by his daughter, Susie of Kansas City; brother, Wayne Edwards of Glasgow, MT; sister, Rae Ann (Everett) Osland of Erskine, MN; and brother, Roger (Vicki) Edwards of Paola, KS. He is also survived by several nephews and nieces. David will be missed greatly.


He was preceded in death by his father, Duane L. Edwards; mother, Loretta A. Whitaker; grandparents, Rupert “Piney” and Doris Edwards and Welsey and Ida Whitaker; nephew, Joshua Edwards; aunts, Jackie Edwards, Marilyn Thompson, and Patricia Tranby; and uncles, Daniel Tucker and Sherman Tranby.
