Edgar Eugene Enterline, son of Boyd and Rilla Fern (Church) Enterline, was born July 3, 1959 in Corydon, Iowa. He grew up in Des Moines and Lacona. He graduated in 1978 from the Liberty Center high school.
Edgar (Trip) was united in marriage to Rhonda Kay Dixson in 1979. They were blessed with two children, Rilla Suzanne and Joshua John. Edgar worked at Johnson’s Machine Works before doing what he wanted to do most, work as a self- employed mechanic and then finally working for Pella Corporation for 17 years before his heath took a turn for the worst. Losing his eyesight was his greatest regret because he could no longer see to work on cars. He loved it when friends came over to ask his advice on how to fix a car and they would spend hours telling stories of all the escapades him and his friends got into when they were younger. He spoke often of his friends Bobby and Scott and even Patty could talk him into attending a class meeting once in a while. We are grateful to all the prayer warriors who upheld this family, visited when they were able and to a special friend Al who became our miracle.
Edgar is survived by his wife of 41 years, Rhonda, his daughter, Rilla Suzanne Enterline (James Hannah) and son, Joshua John Enterline.
His brother, Todd(Mary)Enterline of Lucas, Sisters-in-law Janice (Ron) Adams of Johnston, Bonnie Hammond, Donnell Snider of Chariton, Brothers-in Law Rodney (Carol) Dixson of Chariton, Alan (Sheila) Dixson of Lampe , MO, and Harry (Evelyn)Dixson of LaFayette, Georgia along with many other relatives.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Boyd and Fern Enterline, parents-in –law Donald and Rita Dixson, and Grand-niece Emma Joy Armer.
A Celebration of Life and Internment will be held at a later date. Memorials may be directed to the Family.
