Edward (Big Ed) Mackay

Edward Mackay (Big Ed) passed away peacefully and unexpectedly in his Calgary home on Sept 6, at the age of 57 years.

  He is survived by his loving wife Judy, brother Donald (Brenda), and his two “adopted” moms, Frieda Friedrich and Annie Martin.

  His children Tiffany, Tonja (Darren), Tracy (Marcel), Carolynn (Chris), Brian (Julie), and Brenda (Tom) as well as grandchildren Alexander, Cody, Demora, Leora, Vallen, and Keelie are all taking strength from each other and their favorite memories of a man who will always be remembered for his contagious laughter, captivating sense of humour and loving arms.

  Ed will be missed by numerous extended family, countless friends and many will fondly remember him from days gone by at the MoHo and Doc’s Pub as their favourite bartender.

In lieu of flowers, help us keep his memory alive by sending flowers to someone you love, and live each day to its fullest.
