FITCHBURG - Edwin Glynn Narum, age 71, passed away on Friday, Aug. 11, 2006, at his home in Fitchburg.

He was born in Madison on July 27, 1935, the son of Edwin and Marjorie (Glynn) Narum. He graduated from Madison West High School in 1953 and attended the University of Wisconsin in Madison.

He was united in marriage with Mary Ellen Tortorice on June 6, 1959, in Madison. They met as teenagers in 1955, married in 1959, and enjoyed 43 years of a wonderfully happy marriage until Mary's death in December 2002.

Edwin was a Technical Support Analyst for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the Data Storage Administrator for the Alliant Energy Corporation, where he retired in December 1998.

He was a performing member and later a director of the Madison Scouts Drum & Bugle Corps. These years and friends from this activity remained his most loved memories of his youth for the remainder of his life.

He also served two years in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1953 through 1955. His favorite hobby was photography; and left many memories of this hobby to his family.
