Ed was always a wonderful friend.... for many years dating back to the late 60's.
We enjoyed fun times with Ed and Lil and will always remember him as a loving husband, a devoted father and grandfather and a true friend.
May he rest in peace.
Dear Steve and Family,
I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your beloved father Edward. I read his obituary and he sounded like a wonderful man who I'm sure left a big imprint on your heart and many other hearts. I'm thinking of you at this difficult time and sending my sincere condolences to you and your family.
Our deepest sympathies and sincerest condolences to the entire Family at Edward's passing. As neighbours of Christine, Gord, Matthew and Andrew we were fortunate to have gotten to know both Ed and Lillian. Ed was a quiet loving father to Christine, always present to watch over the family's welfare and so proud of all their accomplishments. In the face of his illness he bravely stood strong and positive. All our best to Lillian and the entire family at this sad time.
Christine, we are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of your Dad. We will remember his warm smile, friendly face and steadfast devotion to quietly cheering on Matthew and Andrew from the stands of countless hockey arenas. We hope all of the happy memories of your Dad and beloved GP provide comfort during this extremely difficult time. Our thoughts, prayers and hugs are with you and your family.
Our thoughts and prayers with Lillian and the family at this difficult time. I had heard of Ed's passing after speaking with Ted about Pauline and our upcoming visit to Sudbury.
Since it's been about 40 years since our family has been to Sudbury, I don't recall everyone I had met during that visit. From what I'm reading about Ed, I think he would have been a great person to know.
