Lesar, Edward E. (14 NOV 1913 - 25 NOV 1966)


Edward E. Lesar, 53, died Friday, Nov. 25, 1966, in a University of Minnesota hospital where he had been a patient for the past nine weeks.


He was born at Willard (Clark County, Wis.) on Nov. 14, 1913, to the late Frank and Franceska Lesar.  As a young lad he had been stricken with polio which left him with a partially disabled arm.


In 1935 he moved to Chicago and was married there in 1941 to the former Ellen Oejela.  They moved from Chicago to Ely, Minnesota in 1943 and had resided there since.


Ed Lesar had a magnetic personality, and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.


He is survived by his wife, Ellen, a daughter, Nancy, a son, Skip, and two grandchildren.


Also surviving are four sisters, Mary, Frances, Anne and Agnes; and by four brothers, Frank, John, Barney (Joe), all of Willard, and Louis, Ely, Minnesota.


The funeral services for Edward Lesar were held on Monday, Nov. 28 in St. Anthony’s Church at Ely, and burial was in the church cemetery.
