CHARLOTTE, NC: Edgar Norfleet Poston, age 61, had a tragic fall and passed away peacefully on July 20, 2016 at the Carolinas Medical Center of Charlotte.

A native Charlottean, Mr. Poston, was born on February 20, 1955. He was the youngest of five children to Margaret Andrews Norfleet Poston and the late Frank Huling Poston, Jr. Edgar was named after the well-known Dr. Edgar Norfleet from Bertie County.

Edgar spent his childhood summers at Nags Head, NC at the family cottage and on the family farm in Roxobel, NC. Another one of his childhood summer highlights was going to camp at Camp Sea Gull in Arapahoe, NC with friends. Edgar had loyal friends through his school years from Myers Park Elementary School to Myers Park High School. Following graduation, he attended Lees-McRae College in Banner Elk, NC.

Edgar was devoted to his mother and enjoyed spending fall and spring days on the family farm in Bertie County. He was very compassionate and loved animals, especially his dog, Bull. His dear friend, Mark and his family, will love and take care of Bull following Edgar’s sudden death.

Edgar is survived by his mother; two sisters, Margaret Poston Frieze and her husband Walter “Buddy” of Waxhaw, NC and Virginia Poston Nivens and her husband John, their children David Beekman and Virginia Swiler and her husband Lance, of Charlotte; two brothers, Frank “Hu” Huling Poston, III and his wife Marret and their son, Frank Huling Poston, IV, of Vass, NC and Alfred Eason Poston and his wife Elizabeth “Beth”, and their son Eason Norfleet Poston, of Charlotte. Surviving are numerous extended family members including the Elizabeth Stallings and William Norfleet families. Also, Edgar’s family would like to acknowledge the love and support of his loyal friends Shane and Pat.

Edgar was a dear boyfriend and friend. He was part of our family. My son was little when Edgar entered our life. He could not pronounce Edgar so he called him Eggroll. He was our Eggroll til his passing a decade later. He loved his firearms and we spent many days target shooting. He call my son Coleman, Colebat and my nephew Crawford, Crawbat because they were all batman superheroes at heart. Edgar, you will always be a superhero in my heart. LOVE ALWAYS, Rachel

Only tonight did I learn of the passing of our dear Edgar. As a neighbor on Sterling Road in Charlotte, he was so very important to each & every one of us. He was the Hero to my Grandchildren and always took very special time listening to them and sharing his knowledge , stories, and skills with them. Edgar will be in our hearts with love forever

We were so blessed to have Edgar as part of our family. Our boys loved him and looked forward to his almost daily visits. Our dogs loved him more than they loved us! He was the most loyal friend you could ask for and will be so sadly missed. Prayers to Peggy and all his family,
Mark, Niki, Avery and Quinn Kollman (and Chase, Bull, and Fiona too)
