Edward A. Beidle Thursday, September 12, 1957 - Tuesday, April 11, 2017

My dad, Edward A. Beidle, 59, peacefully passed away Tuesday, April 11, 2017. He spent his last days at the Cleveland Clinic where he was taken excellent care of by a wonderful team of nurses. Dad had spent years fighting cancer. After he was cleared of having Lymphoma and Leukemia, he learned he was going to have to fight this disease in every other organ in his body, particularly, his lungs. He put up a fight against his illness and never gave up. His family was the most important aspect of his life. He loved us all more than anything. We were his motivation to keep fighting. He and his mom, shared a strong relationship. They talked on the phone at least once a week to catch up on everything going on in life. My mom would sit with him for hours while he watched whatever sporting event was on the television even though she does not care for sports. He really enjoyed that. Dad and his son, Nate, shared a bond through music. Nate loved to recommend music for dad to listen to. More often than not, dad already had that collection. Those two would get a chuckle out of their similar music taste. Then there is me, Ashley. I was the first born and the typical Daddy’s Girl. He was always there for me. Even when I shocked him by bringing home my husband, Dustin. Dad told me repeatedly that he was so glad that I found Dustin and that he is a good man. His dogs were his family too. Ada, Z, Coco, and Pippie were big highlights for him. All five of them would be sitting on a single person recliner every night. They would follow him everywhere and he would spoil them rotten! Friends Mrs. Smith, Ric, Dave, and Ed, he appreciated you being in his life and spending the time with him that you did. We are all going to miss dad. He was a great son, spouse, father, father-in-law, friend, and pet lover. We are at ease knowing that he does not have to fight that awful disease anymore and he can now rest peacefully. Friends may call Thursday from 5-7 p.m. at the Lamiell Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Cancer Society.

My heartfelt sympathy to the Beidle family. I met Ed in 2nd grade, and we competed in everything, listened to and dissected music (especially David Bowie & Jethro Tull), double dated, did crazy guy stuff, and just had fun. I remember his easy smile and his creative writing. We both regretted not staying in touch better over the years, but when we did, the time melted away. I am glad Ed is no longer in pain. I love you, my brother. Rest easy.
