Harold Edwin “Ed” Armann Jr.

January 26, 1933 ~ April 28, 2014

Harold Edwin “Ed” Armann Jr., 81, a 25 year resident of East Wenatchee, WA, passed away on Monday, April 28, 2014, at the Dialysis Center, following an extended illness. He was born on January 26, 1933, at Pomona, CA to the late Harold Edwin “Dek” Sr. and Marvel Beatrice (Ellis) Armann. As a child, they moved to Wyoming and he was raised in the Casper and Glenrock area. He graduated from the Glenrock-Parkeston High School with the class of 1952. He went to work in the oil field until 1956 for National Supply Company. He married Margaret Julia MaGee on August 21, 1956 at Rawlins, WY and together they raised four children, Mary B, Deborah, Horace “Ace” and Patrick “Pat”. They moved to make their home in Craig, CO, where he worked for an oil field supply company, National Supply Company. In 1961, they moved to Casper, WY, where Ed was employed by Caterpillar Distributors and Repair Company and then, in 1964, they moved to Midwest, WY. It is there that he worked for Doc Schidler Company and ran a service station, later for GRAMCO, a service station and bulk plant delivery company. Not long afterwards, Ed decided to break out on his own and started “Rimrock Service” in Midwest, where he worked as owner, manager and mechanic until 1989. The family moved to East Wenatchee in 1989, and purchased “Woody’s Cab” and opened a second company, “AAA Cab.” In September 1998, they reorganized and started “A Cab”. In 2011, Ed stepped down due to health issues and turned the keys over to his children, Mary B and Pat. When Ed wasn’t busy driving, he loved to golf and participate in league bowling and his family refers to him as an “avid Steelers’ fan”. He was a former longtime member of the Salt Creek Lions Club in Midwest-Edgerton, WY.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Donna Lee Armann; and step-father, Horace Greeley McMurry. Ed leaves behind his wife of 57 years, Margaret Armann of East Wenatchee; four children, Mary Beatrice Armann of East Wenatchee, Deborah (Mike) Wahl of Loveland, CO, Horace “Ace” Armann of Sheridan, WY, and Patrick “Pat” (Misty Abbott) Armann of East Wenatchee; brother, Scott McMurry of Edgerton, WI; seven grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
