Edwin passed away Sunday, August 2, 2020 at his home with his family at his side.

Edwin was born August 24, 1931 in Dunn County, the son of Joseph and Mary (Karsky) Volesky. As a young boy, he attended grade school at Sts. Peter & Paul Elementary in New Hradec. He graduated from Dickinson Model High in 1949. Edwin married Irene Hendricks on September 5, 1956 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. To this union they were blessed with seven children. Together they farmed on the family farm in Dunn County before moving to Dickinson in 1960. He joined his brother-in-law in building kitchen cabinetry for fourteen years. In 1969, Edwin became an employee with TMI, retiring in 1994 after 25 years of service. He enjoyed and kept busy in retirement, driving the activity school bus for Dickinson Public Schools for 17 years. He and Irene loved to travel and were blessed to see many European countries, Australia, New Zealand and all but five states. He enjoyed family time at their lake cabin with the children and grandchildren. Playing cards (especially pinochle) with his morning coffee group also put a little fun into his retirement. Edwin was active in his faith, serving as lector, Eucharistic Minister and usher for St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. He was a member of Knights of Columbus and served as 2nd Grand Knight of the newly formed Council 1515, a 70 year member of Catholic Workman W121 (FCSLA), St. Anthony’s Club, Charter member of Dickinson Charities and board member for 26 years. Edwin will be missed by many.
