Minister Robert “Flea” Lewis Edwards Sr. was born on October 16, 1947 to the late Bishop and Mittie B. Edwards. Minister Robert was a unique and special man that lived with a burning desire to spread the Gospel of Jesus to everyone that he came in contact with, he left a livelong impression with all of those that he meet and knew him. Minister Robert had his very own unique and unforgettable language that include quotes such as “Somebody Tell The Lord Thank You”, “Whatcha Say”, “Raise The Roof for Jesus “. He leaves us with so many memories and laughs, from his one of a kind dress code, to the decking out of his vehicles and his attire with flashing Christmas lights and letting down his top with his Christian Music blasting as he drove slowing through many neighborhoods, cities & communities, while spreading Jesus every step of the way. He had a deep love for the youth & encouraged them every opportunity that he was given to live for & love the Lord, he supported all churches and ministries regardless of their size.
