Edward “Eddy” Frank Brezina was born on Tuesday, January 7, 1930 to Frank and Matilda (Sedlacek) Brezina in Tripp, South Dakota. He attended country school in the Lake Region District until the 8th grade. In January 1952, Eddy enlisted in the U.S. Army Infantry. Upon his honorable discharge in January 1954, Eddy made his home on a farm 3 miles southeast of Tripp.  Throughout his life, he farmed crops and raised Black Angus cattle. Eddy loved animals, especially his beloved dog Jeff. He liked John Deere tractors, but nothing could compare to his love for his John Deere Gator. He was a free-spirit who truly enjoyed his agriculture-centered lifestyle. He was a member of the American Legion in Tripp and Twin Rivers Iron Club in Delmont. He was also very religious and a devote Catholic.
Eddy passed away on Saturday, May 30, 2015 at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota having attained the age of 85 years, 4 months, and 23 days.
He is survived and remembered by his sister Ella Schmidt of Tripp, several nieces and nephews, and his special friends at North Point Apartments.
He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Emil Brezina, and sisters Helen Rokusek and Hattie Becvar.

Ed was such a kind man. I so enjoyed sharing the love of the Lord with him when I took him communion on Fridays at North Point. He was always so appreciative and communion was very important to him. I will certainly miss him a great deal. Rest in Peace until we meet again.

I was so sorry to hear of Eddy's passing. I always enjoyed visiting with Eddy when he came into our office. He was a very nice man.
