Providence

"Keep on Truckin"

Edgar Reid Hibbard, 83, passed away peacefully at his home in Providence, Utah on Saturday, Sept 2, 2023.

He was born in Logan, Utah on July 6, 1940, to Edgar M. Hibbard and Norma Rinderknecht Hibbard.

Ed was the oldest brother to 3 siblings. 

He grew up on a small farmstead in south Logan. At an early age he would be placed on the back of their work horse as his father guided them to furrow the rows of sugar beets. This was the beginning of his love for farming and horses. When Ed was 13 his father died unexpectedly leaving him to assist his mother in the care of his younger brothers, sister, and the farm. 

Ed has been a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints his entire life. He had fond memories growing up in the Logan 14th Ward, where he had many outstanding role models. Ed and his 8 friends in the ward all served missions. Ed was called to serve in the North Central States mission. He would later serve in many positions in the Church, including bishoprics, High councils, Elders Quorum President, and many years in the Logan temple. He loved reading the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon.

Ed attended South Cache High School then  graduated from Utah State University, where he completed the ROTC program and was commissioned as an officer and proudly served a tour of Duty in Vietnam. While in Vietnam he also served his comrades as a traveling branch president for the church. 

After returning home he was hired to teach Seminary in Granger, Utah, where he taught for six years. He completed a masters degree in counseling from BYU and was employed by Bear River High School, where he helped and counseled many students for the next 36 years. During these years he made many endearing friendships.

Ed had a lifelong passion for farming. He spent many long days at his farm in Lewiston, Utah, living the American dream. He loved his cows and calves, and spent many hours cutting, raking and hauling hay. Ed was farming til one month ago…

Ed also enjoyed raising and racing quarter horses. A favorite for Ed was a good Western movie, especially one with John Wayne.

Ed was an avid fan of USU football and basketball, and a big supporter of the Big Blue club.  He traveled across the country with his friends and family to watch them play. Ed was always up for long drives, making people smile, heart given compliments and quietly serving others. Ed always enjoyed the time with his family. 

Ed is survived by his brothers Paul (Jean), Clair (Kathy), and sister Martha Cannon (Ken), as well as fourteen nieces and nephews.
