Edwin E. Erhart
Edwin E. Erhart passed away peacefullyÂ March 19th 2007, at the age of 88.Â Ed is survived by his wife, Elsie and their sons, Bob, George and Dale, along with their daughter-in-laws, Johanne and Laurel. Ed also leaves behind seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.
Ed was well respected and admired for his joy of life and steadfast integrity.Â His love of mechanics, metalworking and aircraft, was manifested through his career as a Royal Canadian Air Force Maintenance Officer, as well as a second career as a Metal Teacher at Grant Park High School. His passion for working with his hands was matched with his desire to explore the world.Â A true romantic, Ed constantly looked at all aspects of life from a perspective of awe and he gained great pleasure in supporting his wife and children in their different pursuits.Â
A dedicated husband of 67 married years, Ed shared many experiences with Elsie, from Cruises, to bridge parties and exercise classes.Â Ballroom dancing was one of Ed’s great passions and his fitness in his senior years was an example to many. Â A quiet yet effective leader, Ed sat as the Chair of many organizations.Â School board, Strata Communities, Aerospace Institutions, and many others benefited from Ed’s cooperative skills and positive influence. A positive example to many and loved by virtually all who knew him, Ed Erhart will be sorely missed but never forgotten.
A Celebration of life will take place at Comox United Church, on Wednesday, March 21st at 2 pm. In lieu of Flowers, please donate on Ed’s behalf to the Canadian Cancer Society.
