Ed was born in Meyronne, Saskatchewan on October 23, 1917. He was the youngest son born to Napoleon Fauchon and Demerise Bissonnette. They moved to BC when Ed was 19, and he has since lived and worked all over BC, finally ending up in Campbell River in 1963. He has worked in many different trades, including mining, painting, and welding, as well as being a millwright foreman for 16 years in Port Alberni. Many Campbell River residents will remember Ed from his many years as co-owner of Fauchon Engineering. He also served in the Air Force for four and a half years during World War II. His favorite pastime was fishing, and he will always be remembered for his humorous and lively fish stories. He was an honorary member of the Knights of Columbus, and was a Minister of the Eucharist who did lay services for the residents of Yuculta lodge.
