Young man who was killed in stabbing is honored by Raleigh church

RALEIGH, NC (WNCN) — A young man who left an impact on many of his friends was honored Saturday in north Raleigh.


Edgar Hardison, age 21, was fatally stabbed last November at a party in Wake Forest.

Friends tell WNCN that Edgar was a good kid, who was heavily involved in his church and he was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Hardison also loved basketball and was part of the cross-over ministry basketball league at Celebration Church in Raleigh where he played every Saturday.

On Saturday former teammates came out to honor Edgar with a trophy case.

The church is calling it “The Edgar Hardison Most Valuable Person Memorial.”

“ So each month we’ll be selecting one of these young men, who has a great attitude, helping in the community and helping their friends to show them that they can be a valuable person on the court but in life,” said Pastor Lynton Turkington of Celebration Church.

The day also featured a basketball game in Hardison’s honor.

If you’d like to learn more about the cross-over basketball league call Celebration Church.
The suspect in Hardison’s death has been caught and is currently awaiting trial.
