Mr. Edward Dwayne “Ed” Hymel

Edward Hymel was a loving and devoted husband and father. He spent his life tinkering and fixing anything that needed repair and spent hours in his shop behind his house. From drywall to electrical work, Edward was an accomplished handyman. Most of his adult life, he was a construction worker and later worked at McCall’s Auto Sales where he sold slightly used cars that he make look brand new. He was a member of the Jay High School Class of 1995 in Jay, Florida.
Edward was a lover of music, especially classic rock-the good stuff-AC/DC, Pink Floyd, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. A black Corvette, his hot rod dream car, had a speaker system that sounded like the front row of a concert. He loved working on it, driving it, and listening to thumping bass streaming through the speakers.

Although he was not an equestrian, Edward did his very best and worked diligently building fences and bars so that Maxi could have the place of her dreams. He never caught many fish but loved fishing. An avid hunter who loved NASCAR and Auburn Football, Edward yelled “War Eagle” religiously from September to January every year.

Edward had a signature gap between his front teeth and such a goofy laugh, that if you ever heard it, you could never forget that sound. He was confident yet always humble, and would have followed his beloved wife, Maxi, to the ends of the earth (unless that involved getting too far away from his house). He was a homebody who loved nothing more than laughing and cutting up with his bride and their beautiful daughter, Terra.

A member of Alco Baptist Church, Edward went home to meet Jesus on February 16, 2019. Preceded in death by his father, Charles Hymel, Edward is survived by his mother, Brenda Byrd (Mark Byrd); his loving wife of 22 years, Maxi Hymel; a daughter, Terra Hymel; a son, Michael Liegel; two sisters, Tiffany Williams and Stephanie Hymel; and one brother, Sterling Hymel.

Memorial services are set for Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 11 A.M. at Alco Baptist Church in Brewton, Alabama, with the Reverend Lee Jernigan officiating. Anyone who would like to speak or tell a story about Ed will be welcome to share as we celebrate his life.

In lieu of flowers, there is a gofundme account that has been set up to benefit Edward’s wife and daughter.
