Obituaries: Edward Joseph Prauss (July 4, 1925 – April 28, 2011)

Read more...Edward Joseph Prauss was  born July 4, 1925, in Dickinson, N. D. He died  peacefully on April 28, 2011, at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Eureka, Calif. Ed’s father, Joseph, died of tuberculosis when he was a very young boy. Soon after Ed and his mother, sister, and brother came west to look for work. Ed soon assumed  the role of head of their family and  took on responsibilities far beyond his years. He often boarded out to farms as a worker providing his mother with one less mouth to feed. These early lessons in unbreakable work ethics and unbending dedication to family would be the cornerstones of the way Ed lived the rest of his life.          

Ed took great pride in the years he honorably served his country in the European and Pacific theaters of World War II. Soon after returning home from the war, Ed met and married Maxine Billings, the woman he would happily spend the next 64 years with.
