Edwin Thomas Ough was born to Percy and Florence (Bishop) Ough at Alexander, North Dakota on June 28, 1921 and raised on the family homestead Southwest of Alexander. He attended Rowe School near the farm through the 8th grade.
He remained on the family homestead and farmed with his father and eventually took over the operation. During his time he expanded the farm and ranch and continued to raise small grains and cattle though the years. He retired from ranching in 1995.
Edwin was a member of the Church of the Nazarene. He had a strong bond with his faith and the church. He was a Sunday school teacher for many years and served as the church treasurer. He enjoyed fishing and hunting when he was younger. He was devoted to leaving the lands in good condition so he was instrumental in practicing soil conservation methods and over the years planted many trees and built stock dams to improve his operation.

(Rosie) Ough of Watford City, ND, Michael Ough of Portland, OR, Bishop Bruce (Char) Ough of Columbus, OH; niece, Debra Sellheim of St. Paul, MN; nephew Steve and (Linda) Ough, of Bozeman, MT,; and numerous great and great-great nephews and nieces; and special friend, Yvonne Sorenson , who brought much joy to Edwin's later years..
