Edwin Henry Burdick was born July 28, 1894, in Boulder, Colo. the son of Orville Grant Burdick and Martha Lucetta Davis Burdick; and passed to rest with our Lord on December 26, 1985, at Westland Manor in Lakewood.
Ed was a long-time and faithful member of the Denver Seventh Day Baptist Church, driving with his wife, Elsie, each Sabbath Day to worship until he was 90 years of age. Ed accepted Jesus as His Lord and Savior many years ago and was baptized with his son, Edwin Brownell Burdick. He maintained a real interest in this church and its ministries.
Ed grew up in North Loup, Nebr., where he was active in the Seventh Day Baptist Church there. He had a barber shop for several years in North Loup and later relocated to Arvada, where he was a barber most of his life.
On August 6, 1918, he was married to Alice Elizabeth Tatlow of Neb., the wedding being held in the North Loup SDB Church. To this union was born one son, Edwin Brownell. In the last few years of her life, Alice was an invalid and it was Ed who gently and tenderly took care of her in their home. Alice died in 1963.
On April 9, 1964, Ed was married to Elsie Green Thorngate. They have shared over 21 good years together and enjoyed the opportunities of service in the Church together, along with their various trips across the country and around the state. Ed loved to drive his car.
Ed lived his faith. He was a man of high standards with a great code of personal ethics. When we think of his life of over 91 years we think of the words of the prophet Micah: "He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord requir of thee, but to do justly and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God." Those of us who knew and loved Ed, know these words to epitomize his life.
Ed was preceded in death by his wife, Alice; three sisters, Nettie (2 yr old) and Viola (16 yr old) and Grace Eola White (Mrs. Robert R. White) of Denver, Colo. He is survived by his wife, Elsie; one son, Ed "Brown" Burdick and his wife Marlene; three grandchildren: Susan Colbert, Linda Stratton and Edwin Ronald "Ron" Burdick (all living in the Denver, Colo. area) and 5 great-grandchildren. He is also survived by 3 step-children: Mary Wolfkiel, Gerry Van Dyke and Gordon Thorngate, 10 step-grandchildren and 21 step-great-grandchildren and a host of friends.
...
We come today rejoicing in our sorrow, smiling through our tears of separation, because once again we realize the love and mercy of our Lord. We realize, as did Ed, that because Jesus lives so shall we also live forever in his eternal kingdom. ..."
