Edward Harold Chell, better known as "Eddie", was born August 8, 1940 at Sisseton, South Dakota, to Herbert V. and Elsie O. (Johnstad) Chell. He was raised on his parents ranch in One Road Township, near Peever, South Dakota. He attended One Road School #2 and graduated from Sisseton High School in 1960. Eddie had a good youthful life in the rolling hills of South Dakota.

He married Karen R. Pies, from Waubay, South Dakota on August 12, 1961 in Watertown, South Dakota and was married for 9 years. It was hard for Eddie but he moved to Dallas, Texas in 1971 where he was employed at St. Paul's Hospital then the Children's Medical Center of Dallas. His passions in life were his faith in Jehovah God and His son, Christ Jesus; and Eddie's thoughts were with his children and his parents every day. He was always a loving father and son. His other passion was working with the AIDS Association, AIDS patients, and with children and their parents at the Children's Medical Center.

Throughout Eddie's performing years one of the greatest honor was to hold the human heart while Doctors repaired the heart, and many awards of thank you notes praising his work. He also loved music, meeting with Bible students, and spending time with friends.

"I close with these remarks, I have done my best to be a channel of God's peace, where there was hatred, I've done my best to bring God's Love, if I have wounded anyone today, if I have caused one foot to go astray, if I have walked in my own willful way, Dear Lord Forgive: Psalms 23:5,6, Psalm 103:12."

He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Orville and Harvey; his sister, Dorothy Zellner; his very special Aunties, Pearl J. Wolf and Johanna Iverson; and his nephew, Randy Zellner.

Eddie is survived by his children, Lisa Ruthanne (David) Kolden of Chokio, MN, Jacqueline Kay Chell of Huron, SD and Steven Edward (Claudia) Chell of Alexandria, MN; his grandchildren, Amy Kolden, Joshua Kolden, Jackson Steel Chell and Christoph Xander Chell; his brother-in-law, Chuck Zellner of Summit, SD; special niece, Debbie Bludorn and family; special nephew Randy Zellner's family, Krista and Martin, and Colter; niece, Christy Randall and family; special cousins, Linda Hoss and family, Mary Wyman; and a host of other relatives.
