Edwin Vern Priem Sr.

Dad loved to fish and hunt. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved to play cribbage, dominos and winning with “loving spite.” He loved to work in the flower garden while he lived in Texas. Dad had an extraordinary passion for baseball. He played the game very well, he loved to watch his sons and grandchildren play the game but he especially liked to tell the Twins (aka the TV) how they should be playing the game. While raising his family Dad worked two jobs. His passion was dealing cattle and enjoying the relationships that were created during those years.
