Left this world before he wanted to, He loved the outdoors & traveling. He bought a piece of property there in Washington, Spokane region, he tried & tried to grow trees on that land he had the hardest time. He once had a Cow & some chickens, if I remember correctly one of the hens he liked & would just watch it each day.
He would help just about anyone if you asked & if your pride was

...Uncle Gordan brought me a Mustard Seed necklace when I was a teenager. I was full of life bubbling with energy and he told me that the seed would blossom one day. He was warm, quite, kind and thoughtful. I always loved when his truck and trailer pulled up to my grandmas house... he is and will always be - one of the few really good men. my condolences to family.

Ed was my father-in-law. He was a private man. To look at him he looked "stern". But I know he had a big heart. He really didn't show his emotions toward anyone in public but I always felt we had a secret bond of understanding. There was this twinkle in his eyes and a little twitch of a smile when no one was looking. I loved that about him and the fact that he always sent me black licorice. I will miss him so much.

I remember one time back in high school Clint and I would drive up to Seven Bays and meet up with Ed and Shirley. We basically were beach camping on the Breath Away, their boat. This day we were water skiing and Ed was driving the boat, when he cut, I went wide and the ski that I was on got stuck in the mud. I ended up head over teakettle's. We had a lot of laughs and a lot

My grandfather was an incredible man. He inspired me to be partly the person I am today. Throughout my life his teaching still remain as core values of my life that I will pass down to my children and grandchildren. I always wanted to make my grandfather proud as anyone would, and I was always proud of him. I'll always be proud to say I am a pfennig because its his lasting legacy. I love you grandpa and I will always have you in my heart.

I remember being little and him being my favorite person. Going into the garage and watching projects with him, always made me feel special. I remember the wooden stool he made for me and I thought it was the coolest thing I'd ever seen. He was my papa and he never really had to be. I have some of the best memories because of him. I'll pray for him often until we meet again.
