Online Condolences for Wayne Edsall ( March 22, 1929 ~ February 08, 2019)


March 06, 2019
Sharon, Susan, Steve, I worked as a labor for your dad each summer from 1970 to 1980. This opportunity allowed my to have the education and career that I've had. I will be forever indebted to Wayne for this opportunity. And I know several other guys who worked similar summers would feel the same way. I reconnected with Wayne the Christmas just before your mom passed away. We had a great talk and agreed to stay in touch. And we did. I sent him email messages and he returned advice on my construction project. I called several times and stopped by the house for a visit when I was in the valley. I very much enjoyed our talks. It was clear that he was very proud and very much loved his children. I will miss him. My thoughts are with you and your families during this tough time. — Brent Spomer (Fort Collins, CO)



February 27, 2019
Steve, Sue, and Sharon: We are so sorry to hear about your Dad's passing--may he rest in peace and may the loss you are feeling right now give way to the best of memories of only the "good things". With deepest sympathy. The Bunday Family: Patty, Terri, Schelly, Mike, and Scott and their families — Bunday Family (Bozeman, MT)

My condolences to the family. May the promise found at John 11:25 give you some comfort for your great loss. — Jon Genier (Gray, MT)

Harold Hamm, my late husband, was a close friend of Wayne. They had numerous long conversations re airplanes. Wayne even gave me a ride in his 1932 biplane. The aviation community will greatly miss him. — Zola Hamm (Show Low,, AZ)

My sincere sympathies to Wayne ‘s family. I only knew Wayne through the Montana Pilots Assoc functions. It was my sincere pleasure to know him. He will be missed by all of his pilot friends, whose lives were enriched by knowing him. — Mary Morris (Hampshire , IL)



February 17, 2019
My husband and I share pleasant memories of Wayne from growing up in Bozeman. Gene's dad, Harold Heiser, flew small planes and also rebuilt many planes so knew Wayne well. My dad, Jack Rosenthal, was also a Cessna owner, and friend of Wayne's. Our daughter, Alisa, also had the pleasure of meeting Wayne when she moved to Bozeman a few years ago. She loved the stories he shared with her. Our warmest wishes go out to all the family. Linda Rosenthal Heiser and Gene Heiser. — Linda Heiser (Olympia, WA)

Sharon, Susan, and Steve, Just heard about Wayne. I will always have a special place in my heart for both your parents and still have "The big brown bear..." Thoughts and prayers. — Joan S (Belgrade, MT)

May I extend my suncere condolence to Wayne’s family as well as others here. I had the pleasure to work with Wayne a number of times and found him to be a man of few words but his word was his bond. There are far too few like him-the definition of “true grit”. R.I.P. — Mike Popiel (Saint George, UT)



February 14, 2019
What a great guy, now soaring the blue skies and tailwinds in his favorite airplane forever. May he rest in peace. — Cindy Younkin (Bozeman, MT)
