Edward Angelo Cinits. April 29, 1932 – June 19, 2020
Edward – passed away peacefully at the age of 88. He will be missed dearly by his family. Eddie is predeceased by his parents Edward and Alma Cinits and sister, Sally McNeill. Survived by loving family: wife Marlene Cinits; children, Anita Gillies (Bruce), Leanne Karpus (Henry), Robert Cinits (Rhiannon); grandchildren Leah Payne (Scott), Rebecca Karpus (Stephen Jackson), Lauren and Amanda Gillies, Natalie, Heather and Cameron Cinits; and great grandson James Payne.
Born and raised in Vancouver, he embraced West Coast life until moving to Toronto with his bride Marlene in 1956. Eddie returned to British Columbia in 2008 to be closer to family. Educated as a microbiologist (B.Sc. UBC and M.Sc. U of T), Eddie will be remembered for his passion for scientific research and discovery. He also had a love of art, amateur sport, nature, and animals. Above all else, he loved his family very dearly. Eddie was a firm believer in education and encouraged his children and grandchildren to never stop learning.
We will continue to dance, sing, eat, and drink in celebration of all family occasions – just as Eddie would have wanted, keeping the memories alive.
In keeping with his wishes, there will be no memorial service. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
