Edward Dale Moysis was born October 5, 1928 in Kimball, S.D. to James and Emma (Pospichal) Moysis. He passed away Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014 at St. Michael’s Hospital Tyndall.

Ed attended school in Brule county through the eighth grade. He then helped farm. Ed was enlisted in the Army from May 1951 to March 1953. He was stationed in Alaska.

Ed was united in marriage to Edna Oorlog on February 3, 1955 at the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Avon where he was also baptized on December 25 of that same year. Three children were blessed to their union. Together they farmed in the Dante area and moved into Avon in 1969. Ed continued driving back and forth farming until he sold the farm in October of 1995.

Ed took very special care of Edna until she entered the nursing home in 2008. Ed entered the Wagner Nursing Home in June of 2011 after having a fall and breaking a hip.
