Edward Raymond Voll

Edward (Ed) Voll was born December 14, 1921 on the Voll farm in Byron and lived there for 97 years. He passed away September 7, 2020 at the age of 98.

Ed graduated from Byron High School in 1940. The BHS class of 1940 had 15 people and he was the last surviving member of his class.  Ed helped his father on the farm while in school and he was able to play basketball for the Bears.  Ed’s love of sports would keep him in the stands following his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren for Byron and even rival schools.  It was a joy for Ed to be a fan cheering on his hometown team.

Ed and Ellen (Morris) met on a blind date and married September 1, 1944 raising a family and farming for many years.  They were married for nearly 65 years. Ellen passed away July 21, 2009.

Ed was an active member of Byron United Methodist Church his entire life.  He also served his community in church, township, school board and the Byron Cemetery.

Ed was preceded in death by his wife Ellen, mother Elsie (Hein) Voll, father Frederick (Fred) Voll, sisters, Laura, Pearl, Mildred, Ruth, Winnie, grandchild Jeff Voll and great grandchild Hannah Voll.

Ed is survived by his children Donald (LaLonnie), Dennis (Simone) and Karen (Robert) Brekke; grandchildren Kalli Voll, Tim (Noelle) Voll, Tony (Jeanne) Voll, Amy (David) Rayman, Amber (Derrick) Hardtke, Matt Voll,  Karla (Jonathan) Johnson, and Kyle (Megan) Brekke and 17 great-grandchildren. Many family members have Edward as a middle name  to honor him.  He will be dearly missed.

Ed and his family are greatly appreciative of visits from longtime friends and many others from our Byron community.  He enjoyed his social time at Otto’s and his chance to be with people there.  Thank you to Mayo hospice and Madonna Summit for their loving care.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Byron Methodist Church, Byron Historical Society, Jeff Voll Scholarship or Byron Cemetery.

Public visitation for Ed will be held Sunday, September 20 from 12:00 to 2PM at the Byron Funeral Home. A private family service will follow officiated by Pastor Beth Perez.  God Bless his memory.
