Edgar Hetteen, co-founder of Polaris and founder of Arctic Cat, passed away on Saturday, Feb. 12. He was 90 years old.
Words can barely contain impact that Edgar made on the sport of snowmobiling.
He is gone, but he will never be forgotten.
I feel fortunate for having thanked him (on multiple occasions) for all that he’s done, including starting Arctic Cat.
It’s with honor, grace, and a twinge of sadness (but mostly joy) that I say goodbye to one of the most influential, important people this sport will ever know.
Godspeed, Edgar. And happy trails in heaven’s powder.
