Obituary



Edwin (Eddie) Dreher, age 86 of Plainville passed away Friday, May 31, 2019 in Plainville. He was born Aug. 14, 1932 in Schoenchen, Kansas to Joseph C. and Philomena (Klaus) Dreher. He was married to Caroline Jacobs on Aug. 6, 1951.

Eddie was a jack of many trades. He was 17 years old when he moved to Plainville. He worked for Floyd Kelly. He worked at C&W Machine shop for 10 years. He also worked as a roughneck and pumper in the oil field for 40 years. He was president of the Senior Center for 15 years. He loved going on trips. He brags about all the places he has been and all the new friends he made. One of his favorite things to do was go to sporting events. He received Fan of the Year for the Cardinals two times. He was very proud of that honor. He always had stories to tell. He was a member of the Plainville Knights of Columbus for many years. He did miss his wife a lot. After she passed away he said he did not realize how many little things there are to do. Two of his main sayings were "Enjoy your meal it might be your last". Or "at his age he cant run away from home, he has to walk. We are all proud to call him our Dad. Until we would go to a sporting event and hes yelling at a player and his parents are sitting behind us. LOL
