Ed grew up in the logging industry and became a boiler maker and welder working in mills throughout BC. Ed enjoyed the outdoors, and spent many happy times fishing,
boating, hunting and camping. He especially enjoyed his trips to Thailand.
His favourite day of the week was Sunday because they were spent at Tricia’s house for “Sunday Dinner” with his special Sunday group.
He was always trying to expand this group in more ways than one! The family wishes to thank everyone who cared for Ed over the past six years. A very special thank you to Dr. Mahoney, Pauline, Shannon and Michelle of North Island Liver Services for their special care and much support.
