Edgar passed away Tuesday, September 8 2015, with family by his side. Born March 19, 1927 in Vancouver BC, Ed lived a full, rich life never straying from the BC coast for long. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Ruth, in 1992. Ed is survived by his three children; Judy, Willy and Sharon (Jeff); his favourite granddaughter Darah (Dylan), as well as extended family and dear friends.
Dad enjoyed several careers over his working life – Constable with the BC Police/RCMP, Manager of various departments at the University of Victoria, Park Ranger with BC Parks at Miracle Beach (aka “Smokey the Bear”), and finally as Jailer with the Campbell River RCMP detachment. Dad loved to share stories and jokes, was well known for his wit, and his spectacular talent for wiggling his ears! He spent many hours fishing with his buddies, making beer & wine, and expanding his “collections”. Always a great defender of the RCMP, Dad treasured his connection with the Vancouver Island RCMP Veterans’ Association and looked forward to his weekly coffee dates with his fellow veterans. He was, in a word, a gentleman – kind, honourable, and generous. We will miss him greatly.
