Edwin D. "Ed" Kuehn Ed Kuehn, 81, formerly of Sabina, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on December 31, 2020, at the Margret J. Thomas Inpatient Care Center, Blue Ash, Ohio.
Ed was born on April 5, 1939, in Chicago, Illinois, to Homer and Doris (Slamp) Kuehn.
From Chicago, the family moved to Decatur and then Ft. Wayne, Indiana; then to Lebanon and Sabina, Ohio, where Ed graduated from Sabina High School in 1957. In 1961 he graduated from Ohio University and soon began working at his parents' business, Sabina Farmers Exchange. When Homer passed away in 1972, Ed and his mother became the owners and Ed the operator of the growing company, which by then included Premier Feeds. Ed retired from the feed and grain business at the end of 1999 but continued working, renting many local homes and apartments.
Ed was a member of the Sabina Methodist Church and the Hyde Park Church of the Redeemer, Sabina Lions Club, Sabina Moose Lodge #1244, Sabina Masonic Lodge #324, Wilmington Elks Lodge #797, the Clinton County Board of Education, the board of directors of Great Oaks Career Campuses, board member of the Sabina Bank, member and three-time president of the Sabina Alumni Association, board member of the Clinton County Port Authority, and board chairman of the Ohio Grain, Feed & Fertilizer Association. Ed also served on the President's Council of Wilmington College as well as on the Board of Trustees of Clinton Memorial Hospital for 18 years.
Ed is survived by daughters Linda (David) Nanstad of Batavia, Ohio, Laura (Ryan) Brzygot of Park Hills, Kentucky, and son Matthew (Anessia) Kuehn of Morrow, Ohio; grandchildren Jenna Nanstad, Kole Kuehn, and Tanner, Brayden, Paige, and Beckett Brzygot; cousin Jann (Jim) Slayton of Wausau, Wisconsin, and special friends Carole Kuehn, Corinne Monroe, Leah Geldbaugh, and Carrie Gray. Ed is also survived by his brothers Jim (Sue) of Dublin, Ohio, John (Barbara) of Centerville, Ohio, and Tom (Linda) of Dennisport, Massachusetts and Port St. Lucie, Florida, as well as numerous nephews, nieces, and their families.
Ed enjoyed attending car shows and driving cool cars (from his DeLorean to his Ford Model A), traveling the U.S. and beyond, collecting antiques, watching the Ohio State Buckeyes win and the Cincinnati Reds lose, and especially talking and laughing about farming and life's ups and downs with his customers and employees—very special bonds for Ed. Most of all, Ed dearly loved all the good times he had with his wonderful children and grandchildren. He will be remembered by his family and a host of friends for his kindness, generosity, leadership, community service, and sense of humor.
Due to covid, a memorial gathering will be held at the Masonic Lodge #324, 81 N. Howard St., Sabina, Ohio, in the spring. The date is yet to be determined.
