Ed Progar

Obituary of Ed Progar

Edward Henry Progar died peacefully in his sleep.

Like still waters, his words were quiet and deep.

When you spoke, he was not thinking of what to say

but listening in his thoughtful way.


He was not known for his impeccable attire

or for keeping his home like a cleaning ad flyer.

But for buying a van, so he and his dogs

could explore country hills, creeks and bogs.


He saw through the schizophrenic outside

to the sensitive philosopher inside.

Through the emperor in his finest clothes

to the naked coward below.


Can’t think of a way to end,

or a word that rhymes with Progar,

my soulmate and eternal friend.
