Edwards' family confirmed to CBS News that he had died earlier today (February 2), one day before he was due to celebrate his 75th birthday. He was set to turn 75 years old just tomorrow, and was in Chicago at the time of his death.
Edwards, who was living in Missouri, died at a hospital in Chicago on Thursday night of complications from meningitis, his wife, Brenda, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
