Frosty Ediger

Meade Kansas

 

Forrest “Frosty” Lee Ediger was born March 15, 1940 in Meade County, Kansas to Henry N and Clarinda “Cordes” Ediger. Frosty was their first born of 5 children. He attended school in Englewood, Kansas, graduating in 1959. On October 22, 1959, Frosty married the love of his life, Faye Ann Smith. The couple made their home in Salina, Kansas for 3 months while he worked for Bennett Construction, and then moved back to the Southwest Kansas area. Frosty worked for the Finchum Family in Meade County from 1960-1962, he did work for Clark County in Englewood from 1963-1969, and then for Lewis George south of Ashland from 1969-1983. Frosty and Faye then moved to the family homestead west of Englewood to live and work on the family farm and ranch. Frosty enjoyed his work on the farm and ranch, visits with family and friends, fishing and hunting, and he loved his wife Faye with all of his heart. He had deeply missed her for the last 2.5 years. Frosty was a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, grandfather and friend who often had a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye that could light up a room, and he had a laugh that was as contagious as they come. He often offered hugs that would make you feel safe, warm, welcomed, and loved. Frosty was so proud of his kids, grandkids, and great grands. When family was around, it wasn’t uncommon to see a little one or two in his lap in his big chair learning how to pop his suspenders, playing with a flashlight making animal shadows, or even learning how to use a coyote call. If he was with the grandsons he was probably talking about guns or cattle, and a common phrase to hear upon departing his home would be “Love you kids, buckle up and watch out for deer!” He will be deeply missed by so many family and friends. He was preceded in death by parents Henry N & Clarinda Ediger, son Douglas Ediger, and wife Faye Ann Smith Ediger. Forrest “Frosty” Lee Ediger, age 82 of Englewood, Kansas went to be with his loved ones and his Lord and Savior on Wednesday, April 27, 2022 near his home in Meade, County, Kansas doing what he still loved, working on the farm. Frosty is survived by siblings Jerry Ediger and Joyce, Bob Ediger and Renita, Jim Ediger and Barbara, and Kathy Shumaker and Gene.
