Born in Vancouver on October 9, 1935 to parents Marjorie and Ted, Edward enjoyed fishing, gardening, travel, golf, and was an avid reader. He also had a deep love for his dogs, lasting his lifetime.

Predeceased by his sister, Hazel, he is survived by his loving wife of 59 years, Marlene, brother, Tom (Joanne), sons, Mark (Anne), Dave (Jacqui) and Todd (Heather), grandchildren, Vanessa (Steve), Alexandra, and great-grand-daughter, Annabel.
