Derek Shane Edwards, age 30, of Ocean Springs Mississippi passed away on Sunday, January 17, 2021. He was born on September 24, 1990. His parents are Glenn and Deborah Camplejohn. He has two brothers, Dyllan and Seth Camplejohn and a stepsister, Shai Roberson. He was a loving father to Brentley Elijah Edwards and Alexa Edwards Smith.

Derek was a talented musician, artist, athlete and entrepreneur. He was in several bands along the coast of Mississippi, as well as New Orleans. As a young teen, he was sponsored for in-line skating. His love for the sport was evident when you watched him. He also loved playing soccer and drawing.

He, along with almost every member of his family, always had a love for fishing. That love for fishing, along with his entrepreneurial skills that the Lord blessed him with, moved him to start his own business, Southern Select, making fishing lures. His lures and T-shirts were featured and sold at boat shows all along the Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida coasts. Derek, along with his family, has always believed in Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Because of that belief, the day will come when those who have received Jesus as their Savior will be together again, either at the day of Jesus’ return, or the day we leave this one to be with Him. So... as we will greatly miss Derek here, we are not left behind without hope. We have the great hope of spending eternity with him!!
