The following was a late Friday afternoon statement Augusta Business Daily received from Ed Enoch. For many years, Partner Ed Tarver collaborated with Enoch on various legal matters, including complex business contracts and discrimination lawsuits from their law offices on Wheeler Road.
“Honorable Edward Jerome Tarver, former United States Attorney, and State Senator, died this morning from complications following surgery in December. Ed’s wife, Carol and I appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have already received from the community. Ed was a significant and important figure in our community, and we understand everyone’s interest. We hope the community he served so faithfully will honor him today with privacy for his loved ones, so that they may grieve this unexpected loss and in the days to come, with support in the celebration of his life. Funeral arrangements have not yet been finalized,”
