Peacefully, at home, on Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at the age of 86. Beloved husband of the late Joan. Loving father of Justin and Sarah (Laurie), and father-in-law to Lisa.
Born on a farm near Hillsburgh, Ontario, rumour has it he was a bit of a rebel. Successful, intelligent and well read, Ed was adventurous – whether travelling by moped in Portugal, skiing in the Eastern Townships, or visiting Paris on a whim – and a friend to everyone he met. He worked in advertising and was an entrepreneur, forming his own business and making a success of it through a recession. He loved golfing at Lambton and the beaches at Hilton Head. Predeceased by his older brother Gordon, he leaves behind sister-in-law Jessie, his younger sister Joan Trathen (Bill), nieces and nephews Paul, David, Marcus, Lauren and Tina, and grandson Leo. Ed was a genuinely fun person and he will be missed dearly. A celebration of Ed’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dorothy Ley Hospice would be appreciated.
