Edward Daniel Schocknmyer, age 66, passed away Feb. 26, 2013, in Price.

He was born Dec. 2, 1946, in Dickinson, N.D., to Emil Albert and Mary Caroline Cromwell Schocknmyer.

Eddie shared a great love for fishing and hunting. He enjoyed the beauty of the mountains and the tranquility of the desert in southeastern Utah. His working years were spent mining uranium in Moab and coal in Carbon County.

Eddie was quite the storyteller who could charm the best. He loved a good laugh, especially when he was sharing his mischievous stories of his younger days.

Eddie touched the hearts of many and will be greatly missed by all.

He is survived by his daughter, Mary Golf; son, Eddie Schocknmyer; brother, Emil (Virginia) Schocknmyer of Moab; sister, Kathy (David) Beattie, of Moab; sister-in-law, Marilyn Schocknmyer, Price; numerous nieces and nephews; the Burnham family; and the wonderful staff and residents at Pinnacle Nursing and Symbii Home Health of Price.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Jeanie Duncan; and brothers, Richard Ray and Robert Roy Schocknmyer.

A funeral service for Eddie was held Thursday, Feb. 28, at Mitchell Funeral Home in Price. A graveside service followed on Friday, March 1, at the Sunset Memorial Cemetary in Moab.

Arrangements were entrusted to Mitchell Funeral Home of Price where friends are always welcome daily and may share memories of Eddie at www.mitchellfuneralhome.net.
