     Elwin Arthur Farnsworth's given name at birth was Arthur Elwin Farnsworth (Arthur was his paternal grandfather, Elwin the name of his father). However, by the time he started school, he had transposed his given names to Elwin Arthur.1 From an obituary in the "Bismarck Tribune": Elwin Farnsworth, age 77, passed away in Bismarck on Monday, May 9, 2005 from the effects of cancer and Parkinson's Disease. Elwin was along-time resident of Bismarck, having permanently located there in1953. Elwin Arthur Farnsworth was born on April 5, 1928 on the family homestead located 3 miles southeast of Edgeley, LaMoure County, North Dakota. He was the third of five children born to Elwin Harry and Mabel Lois (Kime) Farnsworth. In his early years he attended country school. After losing their farm in the drought of the Dust Bowl, the family moved into the town of Edgeley in November 1937. Young Elwin completed school in Edgeley and worked on local farms and did house painting with his uncle Colonel Farnsworth.
     Following his graduation from Edgeley High School in 1946, Elwin joined the US Army. During this tour of duty, he was part of the US occupation forces in Chinhae, Korea and served as a radio operator attached to the Headquarters Battery, 1st Field Artillery Battalion, 6th Infantry Division. He returned to North Dakota in 1948, where he went to work for the State Highway Department. As a member of the Army Reserve, he was mobilized when North Korea invaded South Korea in June 1950. Elwin ended up in the Seoul, South Korea Theater of Operations, serving as a Vertical Control Operator in the Artillery Headquarters Battery, 63rd Field Artillery Battalion, 24th Infantry Division. After a period of time in combat, Elwin was assigned to duty in Japan to help with refurbishment and training of replacement troops.
     In July 1951 Elwin Farnsworth returned to North Dakota and resumed his construction work with the State Highway Department. While working on a construction project in northwestern North Dakota in the summer of 1952, Elwin met a young bookkeeper named Joyce M. Johnson at the Crosby home in which they were both boarding. Elwin and Joyce married in the Presbyterian Manse in Crosby, North Dakota on April 28, 1953. By the fall of 1953 they had moved to Bismarck, where they took up permanent residence. Until his retirement in 1990, Elwin worked with the North Dakota State Highway Department. During the 1950's and early 1960's Elwin was the project engineer for many highway construction projects around the state of North Dakota. Later he would be involved with design and engineering construction teams that reviewed and inspected highway projects throughout the state. His coworkers referred to him as "Sarge".
     Elwin was a scholar of Roman and military history. He was a long-time Green Bay Packer fan. Elwin took up vegetable gardening with a passion in 1963, a hobby which he pursued until shortly before his death. He added rose gardening to his repertoire in 1970, and cultivated 55 beautiful hybrid tea rose bushes at his home at 1506 N 15th Street. He took great pride in all his children and grandchildren. Elwin Farnsworth is survived by his dear wife Joyce; children Diane (Milton) Rue, David (Arlene) Farnsworth, Julee (Dean) Ritz, James (Kirsten) Farnsworth, and Richard (Michelle) Farnsworth, all of Bismarck, and Janelle (Todd) Crowley of Janesville, Wisconsin; 16 grandchildren and one great-grandson; an older sister Mabel Bagley of Belgrade, Minnesota, and his old cat Henry. He was preceded in death by his parents and siblings Shirley Farnsworth, Lillian Turney, and Gerald Farnsworth. Elwin Farnsworth will be greatly missed. Funeral services will be held at 10:30 AM Friday, May 13 at the Parkway Funeral Home in Bismarck.
