Obituary for Tristan Nicholas Edwards

Tristan Nicholas Edwards was born on September 1st, 2000, in Boston, MA. To the parents of Ephraim Samuel Edwards and Lynnette Pamela Eddy Edwards. God called him home on September 4th 2022 at the young age of 22.

Everyone who knew Tris/Papi would say he was a mild mannered, soft spoken, brilliant, kind, humble, gentle, caring young man, who was full of life and willing to share it unselfishly. He was this generation's renaissance man with many talents. He shared his many gifts, including art, music, acting, writing, tutoring, and more. He also loved spending time with his family, particularly around the holiday season. He loved art shows and eating out, as he would say “I’m a Foodie”. He took care of his body and image, inside and out.

Tristan is survived by his mom and dad, Lynnette and Ephraim Edwards, Aunts: Ingrid P. Eddy, Suzette Eddy, Sandra Hodge, Doris Connor, Donna Edwards Elliot, Jennifer Edwards Wilson, Mary Edwards, Ruth Bailey, Georgia Weaver, Chantel Edwards, Doreen Edwards-Barker. Uncles: James Eddy, Anthony Eddy, Gabrielle Eddy, Ronald Edwards, Barrington Edwards (also godparent), Valin Edwards, Willis Edwards, Vassel jEdwards, godparents: Lindell McDowell, Amy Shamada, and Lois Morrison, his special cousin Shante Daniel, many cousins, special friends, and the Black Nativity crew.
