I met Ed on Ski Patrol in the early 70'.
We shared many beer and laughs during those years.
We both got too old for ski patrol, but we would see each other from time to time.
He always greeted you with that smile that said all was OK.
Ed was a good friend,

Rick Perkins

Another era has passed along with Uncle Ed. Some of my earliest memories include visits from Ed at Christmas and Easter, and hundreds of weekends and summer days at Shebandowan as neighbours and fellow labourers. Thank you, Ed, for being such a good friend to my parents and my brothers, and for keeping we kids busy and entertained. I look forward to seeing you on the slopes and at the lake again, someday. Your Godson, Tom.

"Steady-Eddy" as I picture him in my mind was a great co-worker! I enjoyed his droll sense of humour at work & at all the monthly dinner parties we had together with the boys after work & later after retirement! We trust Ed had a life well lived with the help of your loving care! Betty, our heart-felt condolences over his passing! Gus & Betty Oberg.
