August 1, 1934 – August 27, 2022
In loving memory ~
Ed was a very hardworking man all his life until his retirement from farming in 2006. He was a success in all things farming- raising cows, planning crops, working fields, fixing machinery, even advising on how to make a good perogie!
Ed married his sweetheart Fay on June 20, 1987. You need big hands when you also inherit 5 kids and their partners, many grandkids and their partners and a clutch of great grandkids too! He always felt that he won the lottery with all of us- we think it was win win!
Once he retired, he and Fay began volunteering for the FoodBank in Kamloops, then later at the Habitat for Humanity (Restore) Kamloops. He believed all his life that you had to help your neighbour.
Ed also had some fun volunteering for the Heritage Train in Kamloops. He loved his conductor role. Kids and adults alike gravitated to his gentle, jovial personality. He was every bit the part and loved it when his family would ride along on his train car.
Ed is also survived by his siblings John, Olga, Sonya and Jim, along with many nieces and nephews and is predeceased by his parents Mike and Annie, his sisters Mary, Nancy, Liz and brother Nick.
A celebration of life will be held at St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church in Chipman at a date yet to be determined.
The family would like to invite you to express your memories of Ed through his online obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com.
