Born on October 10, 1972 to the late Charles and Eunice Osborne Wheatley, Edward loved fishing when he wasn't finishing concrete or fighting with his brothers. Being the middle of nine boys, his mom had her hands full raising her family on Cedar Creek in Russellville, Tennessee.

Edward was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents, George and Kathleen Osborne, and Charles and Blanche Wheatley; brothers, Robert Hillman, Gary Hillman, Lance Wheatley, and Michael Tipton.

Pallbearers will be Hagen Knight, Charles "Pumkin" Hillman, Eric Knight, Derrick Knight, Wheeler Knight, and Kenny Fagan.

The family extends special thanks to Heart N Soul Hospice in Nashville, Marsha Thrasher, Pumkin Hillman, and Vicki Layfield for their wonderful care and help with Edward.
