He will be forever missed by Grace, his wife of 67 years, his children Michael (Brenda), Cindy (Geoff, predeceased), Douglas (Phyllis), Marilyn and Ed (Michelle), his grandchildren Monica (Andrew), Warren (Melanie), Ryan (Alex), Ashleigh (Sean), Courtney (Zach), Amanda (Kyle), Andrew (Liz), Leanne, Eric, Kevin and Brooke and his great-grandchildren Leo, Emmett, Raymond and Patrick.
Ed was an avid outdoorsman; he enjoyed many years of hunting and fishing with friends. The family has fond memories of summers spent on Lake Nipissing fishing, waterskiing and spending time with Ed's extended family.
Ed was also a keen sports fan; he looked forward to the annual reunion of his high school football team and enjoyed cheering for his favourite football and baseball teams every season.
Over the years, he devoted much of his time to the Masonic Lodge, the Royal Arch Masons and the Oshawa Shrine Club, as well as supporting charities including the Canadian Cancer Society. Most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren whenever the family got together.
The family would like to thank the nursing staff on 3W and 3E for their wonderful care and support.
A celebration of life with a reception to follow will be held on Saturday, September 8th at 11:00 a.m. at All Saints Anglican Church, 300 Dundas Street West, Whitby, Ontario.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
