Mr. Edenfield was born September 6, 1966, in Swainsboro to the late Rufus Edenfield and Artie Nell Wilson Edenfield.  He was preceded in death by his parents.  Mr. Edenfield was a member of Adrian Baptist Church. Terry was a simple man who loved his family and friends, especially his grandbabies. Mr. Edenfield was born on September 6, 1966, in Swainsboro, GA. He grew up in Norristown where he followed in his father’s footsteps with farming until he found his love for trucking. Terry was a man of joy, laughter, and many pranks. Mr. Edenfield was a car enthusiast which led to him owning multiple vintage cars and trucks. He would buy, sell and trade until he found the perfect ride “The Rat Rod” or as his grandchildren called it “Papa’s Hot Rod.” He enjoyed entering it in car shows and driving it in parades. Terry’s favorite holiday was Christmas. He enjoyed exchanging gag gifts with his nieces, Hannah and Marley Never knowing what to expect from their Uncle Terry.
