Mr. Edward S. Russell

Mr. Edward Sherman Russell, 49, of Charlotte, North Carolina, formerly of the Monroe Town Community, Pinehurst, North Carolina, died Saturday, July 3, 2021, at Atrium Health in Charlotte.


Edward Sherman Russell, also known as "Eddie Ed" or "Ed" was born on a Monday, July 26, 1971, in Englewood , New Jersey, to the parents of the late Loretta Russell and William Thomas.  Eddie lost his mother, Loretta, at the tender age of six. He then was raised by his grandparents, Rosa Lee Russell and Mitchell Russell Sr., in Englewood. He was the youngest boy of six children.

He received his education in the Englewood Public School System and attended Bergen County Technical School in Hackensack, New Jersey, where he received his high school diploma in 1989.  During his early years, Eddie attended Community Baptist Church in Englewood.

Eddie touched everyone’s heart in his special way!  He had a serious face, but when he smiled or laughed, he would light up your heart.  His professional career started as a Debt Collector Analyst many years ago. He started working for Long Beach Acceptance New Jersey in 2001. He later transferred to the North Carolina office, AmeriCredit/GM Financial in 2007, and this was his current employer. 

Edward made his transition on July 3, 2021, leaving precious memories that will continue to warm our hearts.  He is survived by three brothers, Ronald Russell (Bertha), Douglas Russell, and Vincent Russell (Aisha), and their children, Tyreek and Jelani Russell; one sister, Katherine Russell-Goodson (Prentice), and their children, Kiara, KenNedi, and Prentice Goodson Jr.; and his significant other, Felicia Garner.  Eddie also leaves to cherish fond memories, his extended mother, Nadine Hines and family, of New Jersey; and other relatives and dear friends.

In addition to his late parents, Eddie was also preceded in death by his older brother, William Andrew Russell.
