Edward Frederick Lass
19 Oct 1890 – 29 Nov 1934
Happy 122nd birthday to a grandfather I never knew. He died at 44, leaving a wife and 5 children ranging in age from 3 to 14. A bench carpenter, he worked for several companies including Fort Niagara and a local lumberyard where he constructed church windows. His woodworking projects continued for his family. He made the small, white painted crib that his babies used. It was also my first crib. Projects included an oak roll top desk for his daughter, Irma; a small bowling ally my father still has, and fishing boats for his brother Carl and brother-in-law Jim Monroe.
