After a long, strong struggle with cancer, Ed raised his arms upwards and surrendered to a higher power.

He will be forever missed by his wife, Donna of 29 years; sons: Derrick of Calgary and Brian of Winnipeg; sister, Pam (John) of North Yorks, UK; brother-in-law, Jim and sister-in-law, Doris, both of Nanaimo; brother-in-law, Joe (Carole) of Winnipeg. He leaves behind precious grandchildren and great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Thanks to his family physician, Dr. Ian Montgomery, Pallliative Care Dr. Calvin as well as the special nurses for their care and compassion shown to Ed and the comfort given to his family at this difficult time.

The family will honor Ed’s wishes for no service. In lieu of flowers, please choose a time to have your own reflections of memories shared. Cheers!
