Edward W. Bittner, 75, of Fort Dodge, passed away on Thursday, July 6, 2017, at Trinity Regional Medical Center.

Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, July 11, at 10:00 AM in the Chapel of the Laufersweiler-Sievers Funeral Home and 10:30 AM at Corpus Christi Church, with Rev. Patrick Behm, officiating the Mass of Christian Burial. Burial will be in Corpus Christi Cemetery. Visitation will be on Monday from 4:00 to 7:00 PM, with a Vigil Service at 7:00 PM at the funeral home.

Ed is survived by his wife Nancy; children Todd (Chris) of Omaha, Melissa (Mike) Ziegert of Adel, Jeff (Joy) of Kansas City, and Traci (Ian) Dragoo of Des Moines; and eight grandchildren, Savannah, Natalie, Olivia, Abby, Luke, Ryan, Noah and Piper.

He was preceded in death by his parents Bill and Jane (Prazma) Bittner.

Ed was born July 8, 1941, in Fort Dodge. He graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High School and then attended and graduated from Buena Vista College in Storm Lake. On April 24, 1965, Ed married Nancy Cavanaugh at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Storm Lake. The couple made their loving home on their farm north of Fort Dodge. Following his passion, Ed farmed and raised cattle all of his life. He was employed by Iowa Central Industries for many years, retiring in 2000. He found joy in spending time with his family and grandkids, who adored him. He loved watching racing, from dirt tracks to NASCAR, and enjoyed his annual trips to the Daytona 500 with Todd and Jeff.

Ed will be fondly remembered for his generous nature, his ability to fix most anything and his four-wheeler rides. He always put his family first and took pride in being a provider.

Memorials may be left to the discretion of the family.
