September 3, 1923 – March 19, 2021
It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our father William Ronald Edwards on March 19, 2021 at the age of 97.
He was born on September 3, 1923, in Korah Township, Ontario to William Edwards and Mary Ethel (Moore).
He was predeceased by his father in 1934, his mother in 1936, his brother Gordon in 1997, his sister in-law Mary Edwards in 2012, his loving wife, Ruth (nee Cederholm) in June 2016 and his brother in-law, Keith Seale in March 2021.
He is survived by his sister Thelma Seale, his two nephews, Gordon and Eddy, his two nieces, Darlene and Donna, his daughters, Wilma (Debbie), Wendy, Billie (Layne) and his son Mark. He is survived by seven grandchildren, Wayne, Nikki, Chris, Lisa, Mike, Darcie and Reese, nine great grandchildren, Ashley, Kyle, Mackenzie, Brett Grace, Gabe, Axton, Austin and Emma and three great-great grandchildren, Ryder, Maeve and Farrah with one more on the way. Dad was known as Boompa to all the grandchildren and they never got too old not to use it.
Dad and mom had a long life in Salmon Arm, they enjoyed many activities over the year, golfing, bowling and they especially loved camping with their little dog Yogi. Dad loved to walk and he loved to talk, anyone that knew him would have to agree on that one.
Bill’s family would like to thank the staff at Piccadilly Care Facility and a special thanks to the nurses and care aides in the Aberdeen neighborhood (ward) that took care of our dad over the last ten years, your amazing dedication to the care and attention you gave him was greatly appreciated.
The family would also like to thank Vince Fischer for the care and thoughtfulness he has given to us during this time of sorrow.
Dad and will be greatly missed.
Due to Covid-19 there will be no service at this time.
