Edward Henry Bohlman was born Aug. 3, 1926, the son of Henry J. and Louise R. (Lenhardt) Bohlman of New England. He grew up in New England, where he attended and graduated from the New England Public School.

In 1945, at the age of 18, Ed started driving truck and continued to actively operate his trucking business as well as still "driving" his semi hauling livestock and steel across country. He was happy doing what he enjoyed for 63 years.

You never knew where you would find him and the many dogs he took with him over the years.

His grandson, Joshua, held a very special place, working with him in his spare time.

On April 8, 1947, Edward and Barbara Jung were united in marriage at St. Mary's, New England, and there were 11 children born to this union.

They were divorced, and in 1972 Barbara passed away.

On July 14, 1971, Edward and Fern Kruckenberg were united in marriage, and from this union came two children, Terry and Connie Jo.

Ed is survived by eight daughters, Eileen (Donald) Tuhy, Belgium, Wis., Shirley (Darrell) Peterson, Elk River, Minn., Sharon Warrington, Alexandria, Minn., Sheryl (Robert) Maus, Henderson, Nev., Charlotte (Dale) Specht, Great Falls, Mont., Joleen Wagner, Albuquerque, N.M., Janene Coombs, Youngtown, Ariz., and Connie Jo (Wade) Kadrmas, Dickinson; three sons, Charles (Mary), Henderson, Nev., Rodney (Gloria), Las Vegas, and Terry (Debbie), Dickinson; 18 grandchildren; 10 great-grandchildren; three brothers, Donald, Spokane, Wash., Herbert (Florentine), and Joe, New England; two sisters, Elaine (Dick) Heggie, New England, and Arlene (Larry) Wanner, Glendive, Mont.; and many nieces; nephews; and cousins.


He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife Barbara; wife Fern; two sons, Roger and Randy; one grandson, Howard; one brother Richard; and two sisters, Helen Pilcher and Verna Hoffman.

The family prefers memorials to the donor's choice in lieu of flowers.
