Mr. Robert was born on March 25,1942 to the late Robert Edward Edenfield SR. and the late Ruth Rowland Edenfield in Emanuel County, GA. Mr. Robert was preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Kimberley Nan Edenfield; son, Christopher Edenfield; brother, Joe Edenfield; sisters, Jamie Ruth Edenfield, Barbara Slater, and Nancy Edenfield. He grew up in Emanuel County where he was somehow able to convince Martha Nell Canady to marry him on January 29, 1960. Together they had five children and lived their entire lives in Emanuel County. In his youth, he enjoyed jitter-bug dancing at the Record Hop and Moose lodge with Martha Nell. Their famous footwork caused observers and other dancers to stop and watch their moves. He farmed most of his life in various parts of Emanuel County until he retired from the farm and went to work for Crider Foods. His love of growing things continued after retirement. Mr. Robert enjoyed working in his vegetable garden and taking care of chickens. He was a member of Mt. Shady Baptist Church.
