Ed was born on October 15, 1916 in Russell, Montana, the eldest son of Edward Howard Ames and Mary Margaret (Lambert) Ames. He attended grade schools in Mildred, Hodges, and Wibaux, Montana before graduating with the class of 1936 from Savage High School in Savage, Montana. Ed worked on farms and ranches in eastern Montana until he was inducted into the United States Army on May 4, 1942 and assigned to the 347th Engineers at Claiborne, Louisiana. During World War II, Ed served in the North African regions of Morocco, Gibraltar, and Algiers for the Allied Forces Headquarters and was a message carrier, then promoted to Staff Sargent while working with highly confidential information. Ed was honorably discharged from the United States Army on his 29th birthday, October 15, 1945.
Ed farmed and ranched with his twin brother Edward at Intake, Montana. The Ames Brother's registered Black Angus became well known across the country, as they developed superior genetics in over sixty years of cattle ranching. The Ames Brother's registered Black Angus were listed several times in the national publication of the American Angus Association Pathfinder Report. Ed will be remembered for his life of honesty and integrity.
Ed was preceded in death by his parents, and four brothers, Edward, Francis, Donald, and Michael; two sisters, Margaret, and Dorothy.
Ed is survived by his sister-in-law, Harriett Ames and numerous nieces, nephews and special friends.
