Ewald A. Buehring, 93 of Tyler, Texas, passed away on Sunday, Aug. 23, 2009. He was born in Dimebox, Texas, on Jan. 26, 1916, to Rose and Walter Buehring.
Ewald was proceeded in death by his parents; wife of 27 years, Twillie Irene; siblings: Ella Perry, August Buehring, Minnie Schaarschmidt and Albert Buehring; stepson, Ernest Alexander; and sons-in-law Rick Renfro

Ewald was known as Ed by his family and friends and called “Dutch” by his friends at the Texas Highway Department.
As a young man, Ed worked for the Civilian Conservation Corps and as an oil field worker in California. Ed later worked for the Texas Highway Department, where he was an equipment manager retiring after 23 years of service.
Ed had Parkinson’s disease the last 20 years of his life, and for the last ten years lived with and was cared for by his loving sister-in-law, Evelyn Scates. More than a sister-in-law, Evelyn was Ed’s best friend and her tireless efforts ensured that Ed was able to enjoy life as much as possible despite his illness. Evelyn, along with her children Darlene and Buster, Buster’s wife, Pam, and sons, Cody and Cole, kept Ed active and engaged in life through their companionship and care.
Our family expresses our heartfelt thanks to Doctor Stephen Rydzak and his staff, who went above and beyond in their care and friendship of Ed for many years.
