Ed will be remembered for his love of family, eye for detail in his handy-work, and countless nights playing his favourite game, Skip-Bo. He was a member of the carpenters union for over 50 years and retired at the age of 60. After retirement, Ed found enjoyment in knitting booties and hats with his wife, Rose, for babies in the Sarnia hospital, donating 1,800 pieces in total. He loved to tell stories, often reminiscing about his most innovative projects as a carpenter or his days living on the island. He will be missed greatly by all who know him.
