Cary Gene Edge was called home by his Lord and Savior on Friday, June 29, 2012 at the age of 72 following a long, courageous battle with ALS. A lifelong resident of Macon, Gene was president and co-owner of Dixie Electric contractors for 31 years before retiring in 2002.

His memory will forever be treasured by those who knew and loved him; He will be remembered by his infectious smile, giving heart, and the compassion he extended to everyone who crossed his path. Gene's greatest passion was for motorcycles. He actively worked on and built many custom motorcycles and built several experimental airplanes with his son, Chad. He was an avid racing fan, and he enjoyed driving his drag car "Wishful Thinkin", flying, riding horses, fishing, snow skiing and all varieties of sports- and he loved morning walks to start off his day. He was a devoted husband, loving father, grandfather, and great grandfather.

He is of the Baptist faith and a charter member of Lawrence Drive Baptist church. He was preceded in death by his mother and father, Helen and Otis Edge and brother Jack Edge Sr.

He is survived by his wife Jo Ann "Cookie" Whittle Edge of Macon of 52 years; three sons, John Anthony Whittle, Cary Rock Edge and Daughter-in-law Janeen, and William Chad Edge; one sister, Yvonne Johnson and husband Jack of Florida; one grandson, Jerel Kurt Edge of Billings, Montana; two great-grandchildren, Jader Rock and Jeilen Kurt Edge of Montana and many nieces, nephews, loving in-laws and many close friends.

The family will greet friends from 4-6:00 P.M. Sunday at Crest Lawn Funeral Home. A private grave side service will be held for family members at Glen Haven Memorial Gardens with Reverend Phil Bryant officiating.

In Lieu of flowers, the family asks that contributions be made to The ALS Association, Development Department, 27001 Agoura Road, Suite 250, Calabasas Hills, California 91301.
