Joel Edwin Ed Denman
Joel Edwin Ed DenmanFlagJoel Edwin Ed Denman, 94 of LaRue, died Sunday, November 14, 2021 at Walnut Crossing Assisted Living in Marysville. He was born July 24, 1927 near LaRue to the late Benton E. and Mildred Dakota (Thomasson) Denman. On November 25, 1959 he married Sherry Joan Carothers, who preceded him in death in 2013.

He graduated from LaRue High School in 1945 and enlisted in the Navy the day after graduation. After World War II ended he was employed by Motor Products, then as a lab tech at Whirlpool in Marion. Ed and Sherry traveled the USA before their daughter was born. They especially enjoyed hiking and camping in our National Parks. Ed built his own house and enjoyed raising sheep, solving complex math problems for fun, and most of all being a dad.

He is survived by a daughter, Darcy (Wade) Lallathin, LaRue; and two sisters, Phyllis (Charles) Leeth, and Mildred Joan "Ann" (Neil) Denman, both of Marion.

Dear family of Mr. Joel Edwin "Ed" Denman. I just wanted to send my deepest condolences, and hopefully share some words of comfort. God gives us a wonderful hope regarding our dear loved ones asleep in death. In his word the bible at Acts 24:15, it says that "There is going to be a resurrection." So there is a real hope of being reunited with your dear lossed loved ones again. May this beautiful hope bring comfort to your hearts.

I remember your Mom and Dad well from your days in my 4-H club.  They both were always so willing to pitch in and were welcoming in your home.  I know you miss them both.  Sorry for this loss.
