Eddie Quist Obituary


Eddie L Quist
Eddie L Quist

October 12, 1952 - May 26, 2017
Born in Spokane, Washington
Resided in Coeur d'Alene, ID


Our beloved Eddie passed peacefully into the arms of His Lord and Savior on Friday, May 26, 2017. He was born October 12, 1952, raised in Spokane and later in life moved to North Idaho. He retired from the Spokane Police Dept., the U.S. Marshals Service and Rocket Engineering. He was a member of the Spokane Police SWAT team, Spokane Police Mounted Horse Patrol and Bicycle Patrol. What you first noticed about Eddie, was his bright, warm smile which would light up a room. He was very loveable and likeable with a quick wit and enjoyed making people laugh. Eddie was an experienced pilot having flown single and twin engines airplanes as well as helicopters. He was a man of diverse talents; accomplished in building, aviation, martial arts, music and auto restoration. There wasn't much Eddie couldn't do and if he didn't know how, he would figure it out. For many years he played the piano with his church worship team and felt honored to be a part of that ministry. He had a strong work ethic, loved helping others with projects when he wasn't working on his own. He so loved his family and was always available to help a friend in need. He didn't hold back, he lived life full on, enjoying time with family and friends, flying, boating, fishing, RVing, running (walking in the later years with his precious dog Mugs E. Bear), cooking and riding his Harley.

He is survived by his loving family: wife Lori Payton, mother Edith, sons Joel (Cassie) Quist and Eric (Mona) Quist, grandchildren, Emma Quist, Bryson, Braxton and Jayden Kendall, brother, Alan (Mary) sister Lynette (Bill) Hamilton and sister-in-law Roni Uyeda (Ross Benson). He is preceded in death by his father, Gust E. Quist. He was deeply loved by his family and friends; our hearts are broken. He leaves a huge void and will be greatly missed. Until we see you again, Eddie…
