We extend sympathy to the family of Ed Kalenith who passed away on Sunday, Oct. 2 in Stettler at the age of 91 years. Ed grew up at Endiang on a farm three-quarter mile south of the hamlet, where Doug and Deanna Johnson now live. While at Endiang, Ed farmed, did trucking and operated a theatre circuit that served Endiang and other small communities. After relocating to Stettler, Ed continued his trucking business and was well-known in a wide radius. He married Zena Lane of Byemoor.

Ed will be remembered for his friendly nature and sense of humour, always having a joke to share.
