Edward passed away on Saturday, December 14, 2019 at St. Luke’s Home in Dickinson.

Edward Mathias Baar was born on June 5, 1927, the son of Frank and Theresia (Huth) Baar, on the family farm 9 miles southwest of Gladstone.  He attended Shipley Country Rural School and graduated from Dickinson Central High School in 1945.  In 1946 he enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Belgium; Ed was honorably discharged as Corporal.

On April 24, 1957 he was united in marriage to Veronica Marie Berger at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dickinson.  Ed and Veronica made their home in Dickinson where they raised four children and one granddaughter, Vernette, Kevin, Kenneth, Kari and Melanie Ann Warren.

Ed worked hard all his life providing for his family.  As a truck driver for GTA, he drove well over a million miles without an accident.  He enjoyed fishing, bowling, playing baseball, pinochle and shooting pool.  He was a member of the Dickinson Knights of Columbus Club 6308, the German Hungarian Club and the St. Anthony Club.

Ed’s contagious laughter, sense of humor and witty one liners will be sorely missed by all those who knew and loved him.  We take comfort in believing he is now reunited with his beloved daughter, Vernette.

Ed is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 62 years, Veronica; sons, Kevin (Larry Edwards) Baar of Billings, MT, Ken of Billings, MT; daughter, Kari (Bryan) Hanstad of Dickinson; granddaughter, Melanie Warren of San Diego, CA; grandsons, John (Mallory) Hanstad, Joseph (Danielle) Hanstad; two great-grandsons, Thomas John and Peter Bryan Hanstad; two great-granddaughters, Quinn Kimberly and Nora Jo Hanstad, all of Dickinson.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Frank and Theresia Baar; daughter, Vernette and son-in-law James Scott Warren; brothers, Frank, Carl, Albert, Emil, Joe, Richard; sisters, Rose Albertson, Marie Walth, Katherine Gutenkunst, Theresa Gutenkunst, and Ann Wehner.
