HENDERSON, Edward Robert McArthur
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward Robert Henderson, on Saturday, May 13, 2006, after a lengthy and very courageous battle with cancer.
He is predeceased by his father Robert, mother Mary-Anne, sister Karen, and very special canine friend Cawston.
Ed will be lovingly remembered by his wife Jenny, children Ann (Dale) Gervais of Calgary, Joanie (Peter) Dupont of Calgary, Rob (Leslie) Henderson of Barrie, Ontario, Michael (Shelley) Henderson of Enderby, and Tracy (Rob) Calverley of Oliver; brother Barry (Dianne) Henderson of Steinbach, Manitoba, as well as 14 grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ed was born November 6, 1939 in Ontario. He spent a great deal of his life in the Enderby area, and the past three years in Oliver.
Ed touched many lives, and will be dearly missed by an abundance of close friends and “adopted” children. He spent the majority of his life helping others and will be remembered as “everybody’s handyman”, as he could fix anything, and would do so, day or night! Ed loved the outdoors, camping, and coffee with his friends.
There will be no service, and the family requests that expressions of sympathy take the form of donations to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Arrangements entrusted to Graham Funeral Home, Oliver & Osoyoos, BC.
