We have just said goodbye to one of Vernon’s originals as Edwin “Sonny” Lockwood passed away July 18, 2009 at the age of 86.
Ed danced his way through life spreading kindness, extending compassion and adoring his family. His signature wit, quiet intelligence and incredible zest for life lives on in his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren: a legacy that is priceless. Many friends, from near or far, have passed through his life and each and every one was very special to him.
He is survived by his large, loving family and his dear sister Midge Lewis. By his request a graveside service for family and friends will be held at the Vernon Cemetery on Wednesday July 22 at 10 am, followed by an informal tea to be held at 3916 27th Avenue.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Cancer Society or the North Okanagan Hospice House, where he spent his last hours in comfort and dignity.
