July 24, 1950 - November 11, 2022
Edward Walter Perih, husband and beloved 'Pal' to Lynne, Dad to Greg (Jamie) and Jennifer (Sean), Papa to Avery and Adelyn, brother to Annie, brother-in-law to Ken, Ron, Cathy, and Jane, Uncle Ed to many nieces, nephews and their children, and a good friend to countless others.
Never alone and surrounded by love and family, Ed passed peacefully after a brief but extremely brave battle with lung cancer.
Born in North Vancouver to Fred and Tena Perih and always loved by his older sister Annie, Ed grew up in Queensborough. He met Lynne in 1976, eventually settling in South Surrey to raise their family.
Family and friendship were the core of Ed's being. Known for his generosity, wisdom, wit, open heart, and open home ­­— he was a light, a guide, a good time, and a 'fixer' to many.
Ed spent most of his career as a successful construction business owner. Those efforts allowed him to retire early and enjoy time with his family, friends, and Lynne in San Jose del Cabo and on their many adventures.
Ed will be missed terribly by all who knew him and continued to count on him. We will do our best to make him proud by lifting each other up, giving our all, and appreciating what we have and the people around us.
A Celebration of Life is planned for December 9. Further details are available on the online memorial page:
Thanks to the SMH Palliative Care Team for their compassion and care.
Let your love fly like a bird on a wing
And let your love bind you to all living things
And let your love shine and you'll know what I mean
That's the reason
