Dionte Lamont Edwards was born in Louisville, Kentucky, on Friday, November 17, 1995, to Pamela Claycomb and Bobby Edwards. He was a graduate of Seneca High School and was the youngest child of his mother’s four children and his father’s middle child. He grew into a young man who believed in working for a living, and because of that, Dionte always had a job, and most recently, he was working two jobs.
When he wasn’t working, Dionte definitely enjoyed his music and video games. For relaxation, he loved to back his car in at Newburg park to smoke his “dro” or go fishing. Oh, how he loved fishing! If anyone peeked into the back window of his car, there on the back seat would lay his fishing pole. His love for his Newburg neighborhood and friends ran deep, but nothing compared to how deep his love was for his family. Dionte was extremely fond of his brothers, sisters, and nieces and nephews. “Uncle Tae!” is what the nieces and nephews called him.
On Saturday, December 3, 2022, Dionte Lamont Edwards departed this life. He leaves to cherish his memory: his parents, Pam and Bobby; sisters, Starkisha, I’esha, Delicia, and Desiree; his brothers, Christopher, Deontray and Brandon; nieces and nephews, Aijah, Alisha, Aniya, Christopher, Jr., and Za’Khari; girlfriend, Alyssa Foster; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
