Don Edwards Obituary – Cause of Death: In loving memory of iconic cowboy balladeer, Don Edwards.
Don was one of the great cowboy troubadours, and a much-loved artist who performed at many Gatherings in Elko. He was an award-winning recording artist, singer/songwriter, yodeler, and an actor with a Hollywood career as well.
Once referred to as a singing scholar of the Old West, his deep knowledge of history and musical lore was of great help when our media team traveled to Fort Worth for in-depth research of John Lomax. Don guided them through the Fort Worth Stockyards and the Elephant Saloon, and was very generous with both his talents and time.
Words fall short of expressing our grief for your loss, as we mourn with family and friends for this great loss. Please accept our condolences and may our prayers help comfort you. Please receive our heartfelt condolences.
Feel free to drop condolences messages and prayers for the family and friends of the deceased as it will go a very long way at this difficult time of theirs.
