He always expressed gratitude to the citizens of Oswego who mentored and supported him when he lost his father at age three.

During his high school years, he developed a love of the majestic west when he spent his summers working for his Uncle Cy and Uncle Clinton in Hood River, Ore. In 1946, he climbed to the top of Mt. Hood, an exciting adventure for a Kansas farm boy.

After graduating from high school, he entered the U.S. Army and served two years in Korea as a member of the military police. He said he was fortunate that he never had to use his service revolver because he didn’t know how to load it or shoot it. On his return to the States, he enrolled in Kansas University, in Lawrence, Kan., where he completed his undergraduate studies in geography and education. It was at K.U. that he courted and married his beloved wife, Betty Colleen (Robinson).

His family settled in Sanger, Calif., where Ed taught geography and added a daughter to his family. After earning a master’s degree in counseling from Fresno State University,bhe spent several years as a guidance counselor at Sanger High School and Fresno City College. He later served as the Dean of Counseling and Guidance at Fresno City College. During his years as a respected educator and counselor, he positively impacted the lives of countless students with his compassion, generosity and optimistic spirit.

After his retirement in 1990, Ed and Betty moved to New Pine Creek, Ore., a place he affectionately called his Oregon Outback. He marveled at the sunsets over Goose Lake, tended to his one acre garden and traveled to the far sides of the country and world with Betty by his side. He had an undying curiosity and love of nature, people and beautiful artifacts. He cherished his extended family and there were always surprises, merriment and lessons to be learned when grandchildren visited.

He is survived by his much loved wife, Betty, of New Pine Creek, Ore.; son, Steven Perkins, Fresno, Calif.; son and daughter-in-law, Craig and Roxanne Mora Perkins, Los Angeles; daughter and son-in-law, Patti and Bill Carpenter, New Pine Creek, Ore.; grandchildren, Drew, Dana, Erin and Evan Perkins; Lisa and Colton Carpenter; and great-grandson, Ethan Perez.

He was a member of Zion Hill Community Church, American Quarter Horse Association, American Paint Horse Association and the National Cutting Horse Association.

His bits can be found all across the United States and can be found in the mouths of horses in the movies, and in multiple televised horse events. B.

He was known on many occasions to give away the buckle right off the belt in the loops of the Wranglers he was wearing. His last act of generosity was demonstrated by the fact that he was an organ donor, his wish to save the lives of others was honored. B. E. never preached from a pulpit, but his life was a sermon to be emulated. He will be missed greatly.

B. E. is survived by his mother, Donna Eichhorn, Bartlett, Kan.; one sister, Beth Conrad  and husband Delbert, Bartlett, Kan.; two brothers;  Brent Eichhorn, Pratt, Kan.; and Ben Eichhorn and wife Jennifer, Bartlett.
