Ed passed away peacefully on 29 September 2021 at Hospice in Victoria, BC, after a valiant battle with cancer. He was born in Blaydon, UK, on 21 October 1936. He was predeceased by his wife, Helene, and brother, Allan. He is survived by his children, Catherine (Michael) and Ian (Gayle); grandson, Robert (Brittany) and many friends in the UK and Sooke, BC. Dad’s happiest work memories were made during his time in the Royal Engineers. They moved to Vancouver in 1974 for a better life, and found it. He and Helene settled in Sooke in 2001, after retirement, and loved being a part of the community.
Ed will be interred beside Helene at Hatley Memorial Gardens, Victoria, BC. No flowers by request. Donations can be made in Ed’s memory to the Victoria Hospice Society. Condolences can be offered to the family below
