Edwin Fredrick Tino was born March 4, 1932 on the family farm, rural Clarinda, Iowa to Fred Tino and Emma (Hennemen) Tino. Ed grew up in the Clarinda area and graduated from Clarinda High School. He served his country in the United States Army 1954 -1956. Ed was a life long farmer, starting at an early age when his father died in a tractor accident. He was also a sales representative for Archer Oil Company for many years. Ed also trucked. He retired from farming in the 90s and moved to town where he worked for Akin Lumber. Ed was very personable and loved being with people and was quite the jokester and prankster. He enjoyed his coffee groups, Friday evening Bruner's group, his brunch friends and all of his neighbors which became his family and he enjoyed the companionship of his dogs. Edwin enjoyed his adopted family. Holidays and birthdays were always lively. The grands enjoyed a good game of cards and games with Grandpa Edwin. The rules always changed with each hand played. Ed loved to garden and had wonderful tomatoes and melons and enjoyed sharing. Preceding Ed in death were his parents, Fred and Emma Tino; brother, Lloyd Tino. Left to cherish his memory are his sister-in-law, Gayle Tino of Pleasant Hill, California; nieces, Rhonda Buckles (Ken) and Valerie Hancock (Pat); great niece, Ann Marie Hancock and great nephew, Liam Hancock, special friends, Duane and Jean Minor of Clarinda and Gerald Eitzen of Clarinda and many cherished friends. He was greatly loved by the Minor family, Jason and Chelsea Minor and their sons, Gus and Weston of rural New Market and Brent and Jackie Minor and their children, Lucas and Makenna of rural New Market.
