Edward W. Figlenski

Edward W. Figlenski went to the next world on his own Friday, Feb. 22, 2014 at Apple Springs Assisted Living due to pancreatic cancer.

He was born Nov. 20, 1951 at Omak to Wills and Violet Figlenski. Graduated high school with the Class of 1970 from Okanogan, then attended college at Wenatchee and Western Washington, returning to Okanogan in 1973 where he began working at the sawmill, driving front end loader. In 1978 he came up to the family cattle ranch and built his A-frame home in Tunk Valley.

Ed loved music of all kinds, amassing a huge recording collection and stereo component systems. Reading, hiking and enjoying friends and family were his greatest joys.

Eddie is survived by Willis and brother Ernie of Tunk Creek, aunts Myrna Featherly and Betty Morris of Okanogan, Marge Garett of Yakima; uncles Lnard Garett of Yakima, Meb Morris of Omak and Gerald Schultz of Tonasket. Numerous cousins also survive.

He was preceeded in death by aunts Arlene Joy, Gwen Cowlishaw and Dolores Scholz, uncles Pib, Don, Bub and Orval Morris and mother Violet.

The family would like to thank the staff at Apple Springs for their wonderful care during Ed’s illness. Also, special thanks to cousins Mary, Jerry and Roberta Scholtz, Debbie Burberry and Steve Payne, Myrna and Betty, Sheryl Curtis, Victoria and Tim Nelson, Jerry Simpson and Darrel Green for helping feed the cattle. And, all the valley ladies for the great food.

No services will be held, but a memorial wake will be announced at a later date.

Precht-Harrison-Nearents Chapel is in care of arrangements.
