June 16, 1925 – October 16th, 2013
Ed Kuehn, 88, of Summerland BC, died peacefully the morning of October 16th, 2013 at the Summerland Senior’s Village. He was born June 16th, 1925 near Blackfoot, AB to William and Lydia Kuehn. Ed was predeceased by his wife Bergie. They were married on December 8th, 1948. Ed’s legacy is continued in the lives of his children: Richard (Joanne), Vernon (Maureen), Alan (Lucy), Garnet (Monique), Nola, Shauna (Kim), 13 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. Ed’s professional life was impressive. He founded Ed Kuehn Services in the oil fields of the Prairies. Though successful, this was a precursor to his true passion in life—raising and training world-class horses. He and his wife began Ed-N-Berg Appaloosas in Rocky Mountain House, AB continuing for many years after moving to Summerland. Ed was renowned for his commitment to his horses, exemplified by the countless awards and accolades that were proudly displayed in his home. Ed loved to fish, camp, and ride his horses. If he was ever inside during the summer, there was a baseball game on his television. Ed was also involved with the Summerland Trail Riders Association, and was always present at the annual Summerland Rodeo. In later years, he could be found meeting his friends for morning coffee at the Country Cafe. Ed lived a long, full life and will missed as much as he is loved. Our family extends a special thank you to the staff at Summerland Senior’s Village for taking such good care of this wonderful man. Celebration of Ed’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #22, 14205 Rosedale Ave, Summerland, BC on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at 1:00 pm. In Ed’s honour, donations may be made to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation.
