The Daily News has learned that former state Rep. Zeno Edwards, D-Beaufort, has passed away. For more on this story, see Sunday’s print edition.

“Zeno was committed to his community and worked hard while he was in the Legislature for the people he represented. I admired his spirit,” said Judy Jennette, former mayor of Washington.

“Zeno was a good friend and I will always remember him,” said Surry Everett, speaking as a friend of Edwards and not as chairman of the Beaufort County Democratic Party.
