Obituary of Tyrell Anthony Edwards

Tyrell Anthony Edwards made his grand entrance into the world on May 25, 1983. He was born to his mother, Mary Ann Sarpy, and father, Larry D. Iford, and lovingly raised by his mother and stepfather, Charles Sarpy. As a young boy, Tyrell devoted his life to Christ and began his spiritual walk in the Baptist faith. He graduated from Hightower High School in the Fort Bend Independent School District and furthered his studies afterward in Houston, Texas at Houston Community College and Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches, Texas. In his leisure time, Tyrell enjoyed cooking and was becoming a "Foodie", bowling, creating wigs, and traveling. More than anything, spending time with family and friends was the highlight of his day. Tyrell was a special guy and we will never forget our journey with him. Not only did we have so much fun with him, but we have all learned so much from him about determination, faith, and grace, and definitely how to have a good time. He will be deeply missed and forever loved. Although our eyes are filled with tears and our hearts are flooded with sadness about the expedient removal of Tyrell's physical presence, we have the assurance that he is resting in the arms of Jesus. He departed this life on Wednesday, February 16, 2022, and was preceded in death by his father, Larry D. Iford; paternal grandmother, Jeanette Iford Mayo; paternal grandfather, John E. "Bobby" Guillory; maternal grandmother, Shirley M. Edwards; and maternal aunt, Ella M. Edwards. Loving memories will forever linger in the hearts of those he leaves behind, which includes his beloved mother, Mary Ann Sarpy; stepfather, Charles Sarpy; maternal grandfather, Moise Semien; maternal brother, Chance C. Sarpy; paternal brother, Larrell D. Greene; paternal sister, Kimberly Iford; paternal sister, Tosha Brooks; paternal sister, LaQuana Rice Peters; maternal aunt, Sarah L.

Iford; paternal aunt, Mechelle Clennon; maternal uncle, Mark Edwards; maternal uncle, Shawann Williams; and paternal uncle, Tyrone Mayo; eleven nieces and nephews; and several cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
