Edward George Harrison


Edward George Harrison went to be with his Lord and Savior Monday, September 19, 2016. His wife of 60 years, Greta, preceded him in death and now they are happily reunited again in Heaven.  Edward was the sixth child out of 11 children. He is survived by his sister Faye Louise Hale, his sister-in-law Roberta Kuehn and many nieces and nephews.

Edward was born in McCook, Nebraska in 1923.  He married Greta, his wife of 60 years, and moved to Denver, CO.  Edward served in the U.S Army during WWII and was stationed in London, England and later in France.

Edward worked for the Union Pacific Railroad for 40 years.  While he worked, he continued on with his education and got his PhD in Theology from the Conservative Baptist Theological Seminary.  He and his wife were members of the First Baptist Tabernacle for 30 years. He accepted the Lord and was baptized there in 1939 and Greta in 1941. In 1969, he and Greta left and became members of the 1st Bible Church near their home. Throughout most of his life, he was an active member in his church.

After his wife passed away eight years ago, Edward lived by himself for two years and then became ill due to his diabetes. He lived his remaining six years at the Life Care Center of Littleton. He loved the staff at LLC.  They helped him make his new surroundings feel like home. He loved his ice cream socials after playing bingo on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays. He attended church, current events and had great fun on the many fishing trips over the years. The holidays were special with lively entertainment and his family loved them also. 

Many of Edward’s family and friends could testify to his spiritual strength.  He loved the Lord and his faith was strong.  A couple of his favorite passages of scripture were: 1) Romans 8:28 (And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose); and 2) Psalms 23 (please read).

Wherever God placed Edward, he told them about his Savior; even at the nursing home at the age of 93. He was a mentor through his actions to many.

We love you and miss you Uncle Ed.
