He worked at Sudenga full time from 1958 to 1968, drove school bus, and sold seed for Walnut Grove. Ed returned to Sudenga, delivering equipment, attending fairs with the reps of the company, and worked in the Auger Department.

He enjoyed fishing, golfing, and camping trips with Evelyn.  He volunteered with the Boy Scouts and Wheel Dynamics. Ed was interested in all the new farm equipment and had a ride in one of the new combines last year. He was a very compassionate person and an all-around good guy.  

     His wife, Evelyn passed away on August 13, 2016, at the Good Samaritan Home in George at the age of 95.  In December of that year Ed entered the Good Samaritan Home where he remained until this past Tuesday, December 11th, at the age of 98. He will be greatly missed.
