Edward N. Smith
April 19, 1931 - March 30, 2013
SISTERS - Ed has departed our world as we know it and began his new adventure into his afterlife, following a brief battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family and comforted by their love, at his home in Sisters, OR.
Ed served his country with great pride with the U.S. Army at the end of WW2, stationed in Germany and again with the U.S. Navy in the Korean War and served in the Chosin Reservoir battle.
He is survived by his wife of 20 years, Diana Hesson Smith, his sons, Mike and Mark and daughter, Theresa, along with many grandchildren, nieces, nephews and lastly, his many friends.
At Ed's request, no formal service will be held and no flowers requested----please plant a tree or flower in his memory. Ed and his big dog "Bud" will have their remains placed at Willamette National Cemetery in Portland, OR.
A heartfelt thank you to Ed's special "Hospice Angels" and to his "train wreck" Doc, Theodore Braich, M.D. Memorials may be sent to Partners in Care (Hospice of Bend) 2075 NE Wyatt Court, Bend, OR 97701. Arrangements were made with compassion, by Autumn Funerals, Redmond, OR.
