Barry (Ed) Karcher joined the ancestors on Feb. 1, 2020. He attended the very first Wheatland festival east of Remus with his wife, Alice and two young daughters and attended most every festival since then. For several years Ed helped sell tickets and helped with setup and takedown chores. He was proud to call Gladys and Mark Wernette Aunt and Uncle, if only through marriage, and loved the farm and family dearly. Ed looked forward to Wheatland every year so that he could kick back and relax in the warmth of his Wheatland family.
