April 28, 1929 – January 7, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edward Linder, late of Campbell River. He passed away peacefully at Casa Loma in Courtenay with family by his side.
Ed was born in Graz, Austria, immigrated to Canada in 1951 and was predeceased by his wife Frances in April 2012. Survived and forever missed by his two daughters Geraldine Melenchuk of Hamilton Ontario, grand-children Leah Pictin (Steve), Tyler Melenchuk (Olya), Ryan Melenchuk (Maria) and Heidi Ursuliak (Jonathan) great-great grandchildren, Zya and Lula and daughter Gayle Black (Malcolm) of Courtenay grand-child Gina Butts (Cameron) and great-grandchildren, Natasha, Megan, Landon.
Upon arriving in Canada and for the next few years, he worked his way across the country, finally settling in Campbell River. His work for Canron Inc transferred him to Powell River, Nassau Bahamas, Kamloops, Kemano, Whitehorse, then settling back in Campbell River. After retirement he carried on the pastimes of his garden, fishing, hunting, bee-keeping and playing his passion, Bridge.
