Ed was born in Dysart, Saskatchewan. He moved to Trail where he married his loving wife Eileen on September 15, 1946. They moved to Nelson in 1948 where both sons were born. There he worked as a mechanic. In 1954, they settled in Kimberly where he was co-owner of Kimberley Motors. Later they relocated to Vernon in 1970 where he worked until retirement at Vernon Motors. Running an orchard and being involved in the community kept him busy. His last years were spent at Heron Grove where he was always there to help with his ever present smile.
We will miss you.
