Edward “Ed” Sandvig, 84 years of age, left his earthly home on March 12, 2024 to be with his Lord and Savior. He touched the lives of many and will be deeply missed by family, friends, and all who knew him. He lived a life filled with love, laughter, and kindness. His unwavering compassion and generosity left an indelible mark on everyone fortunate enough to cross his path. 

Ed was born on May 7, 1939 in Canton, South Dakota. He was the third child in a family of five and loved spending time teasing his siblings. He spent his teenage years at Augustana Academy where he met some of his lifelong friends. In January 1963, Ed’s life changed completely when he met the love of his life, Shirley Ching. Their love story began quickly with a proposal after 4 weeks of dating. It goes without saying that Ed always knew exactly what he wanted. Ed’s desire was to become a cattle buyer, but he was hired quickly and began his career in sales for Wilson Foods. He achieved great success in sales and soon became the National Sales Manager. His dedication, work ethic, and integrity earned him awards, trips, and the respect of colleagues and clients alike. While he was always satisfied with his career, nothing could compare to the pride he had in his children, Chad and Mitchell. His family is what always spurred him onward and upward. When it was time to retire, Ed and Shirley split their time between South Dakota and Sun City, Arizona where Ed golfed and enjoyed the warm temperatures. He loved his time in Arizona, but once he met his granddaughters, he decided it was time to move back to Oklahoma to be close to family. Ed was one of the greatest story tellers and loved sharing his stories to anyone lending an ear. When he wasn’t bragging on those he loved, you could find him farming, ranching, golfing, fishing, or just enjoying the outdoors.

Ed is survived by his wife of 60 years, Shirley Sandvig, sons Chad (De’Aun) Sandvig and Mitchell Sandvig and two granddaughters, Olivia and Lilian Sandvig. He continues to be dearly loved by his siblings Helen Bergren, Louise (Lanny) Kinnander, Alan (Sue) Sandvig and brother-in-law Jerome Erickson. He also loved his many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by son David Sandvig, parents Loraine and Bertha Sandvig, sister Bonnie Erickson, brother-in-law Bob Bergren, and nephew Todd Bergren.
