Ed Stocker, head of farm family, dies

SNOHOMISH — A staple in the Snohomish Valley is gone.
Farmer and beloved icon, friend and family patriarch Ed Stocker died June 1 at the age of 90.
An outpouring of condolences, memories, love and support for the Stocker family flooded several Snohomish-centric Facebook pages. 
Edwin Stocker was often coined the “Corn King” of the Snohomish Valley because in the early days of the valley’s farming, he spearheaded and cornered the market on the golden favorite. To this day, Stocker Farms still produces large amounts of corn
as well as other vegetables, fruits and fun family farm experiences. Ed and Edith bought multiple large parcels valley-wide.
Apart from farming, Ed was involved in several Snohomish organizations such as Snohomish Kiwanis, the Snohomish Community Food Bank, the 4-H Club and more.
A full profile story will run in next week’s Tribune.
