Obituary for Ed Eiselstein

Edwin Eugene Eiselstein, 71, of Cedar Rapids, died Thursday, November 16, 2017, at his home. Funeral Services: 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, November 22, 2017, at Stewart Baxter Funeral & Memorial Services, Cedar Rapids. Visitation: 4-7 p.m., Tuesday, November 21, 2017, at the funeral home. Burial: Anderson Cemetery, Swisher, Iowa.

Survivors include his sons, Casey and Brent (Melissa) Eiselstein; grandchildren, Dane Moriconi, and Aubrey, Jaden, and Luke Eiselstein; siblings Alberta (Joe) Clark, and Allen Eiselstein; several nieces and nephews; and the men of his Bible Fellowship Group.

Ed was born to Richard and Ethel (Grim) Eiselstein in Muscatine, Iowa, on October 18, 1946. He grew up on the family farm in Olin. Ed chose to serve his country in the United States Navy. He married Jeanne Smith with whom he had two sons; they later divorced. Ed worked for Weyerhaeuser and then International Paper in shipping and receiving.

He was a kind and humble man who thought himself extremely funny. His corny jokes endeared him to many at the Swisher Legion and with his Bible group. He enjoyed his motorcycles, hotrods, and was a big Western Movie fan.

Ed was preceded in death by his parents.
