Edward Francis Young

July 14, 1931 to October 18, 2014

After a life well lived, Ed has reached the end of a long journey with Alzheimer’s. A kind, caring, gentle soul, Ed was a hard working man who had two honourable careers in telecommunications, with the RCAF and the RCMP (civilian member). One of Ed’s passions in life was scuba diving, and he was able to end his working years by working in the commercial diving field. Ed is survived by his wife Ellie, his sons Gary (Nancy), Kevin, Greg (Tracy), their mother Pierette, stepson Doug and stepdaughter Laura, his grandchildren Krista, Derek, Andrew, Steven, Nathan, and great granddaughter Kaylee. Predeceased by his brother Joe, Ed is survived by his siblings Josephine, Patsy, Barry and Stephanie. Extended family includes his sisters/brothers-in-law Ken and Shirley Foster, Kirk and Diane Davies and numerous nieces and nephews.

At a dedication celebration in the future, a memorial bench will be placed at his favourite place, Airforce Beach in Comox. A debt of gratitude to Home and Community Care Courtenay (Seniors’ Health), the staff at Royal Jubilee Hospital Victoria and Lodge on 4th in Ladysmith for excellent care of Ed. A big thank you goes out to friends and family who respected Ed’s life to the end. To honour Ed’s life, please “pay it forward” by spending time with those in need.
