May 14, 1941 – June 18, 2023
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Edgar on June 18th, 2023. Beloved husband of Barbara, cherished father of Linda (Steve), Carolyn (Mike) and grandfather to Evan. Predeceased by his brothers Michael and Andrew. He will be dearly missed by his sisters Anne (Greg), Carla, his sister-in-law Ann and his many nephews. He will be fondly remembered by his many friends and his church, Masonic and Shrine families.
Edgar was a scout leader for many years and the many weekends spent at Tamaracouta with his buddies was a source of great joy. He was also the treasurer of Ste. Genevieve United Church for over 30 years and the hours spent in the church office or at home working on accounts was where Edgar was truly in his element. One of Edgar’s most memorable moments was when he became Worshipful Master of Meridian Royal Alexander Lodge. He was a proud Shriner, a member of the Greeters’ Unit taking pleasure in picking up patients at the airport as well as a PTS driver for the Shriner’s hospital.
Anyone who knew him enjoyed his sense of humour, his quick wit, his huge heart and contagious smile and thoughts of our fun times, our silly times and our years of camping are among our most treasured memories. We would like to express our sincere thanks to Donna and Mike for their many kindnesses and support and extend our gratitude to Stéphanie Côté and the staff at Voluntas.
His family will receive condolences at Ste. Genevieve United church, 4697 Boul. St Jean, Dollard des Ormeaux, on Saturday July 22, 2023 from 12 noon to 1 p.m. A masonic service will take place at 1 p.m. the funeral will follow at 2 p.m. The family invites you to join in the Voluntas reception hall from 3 to 6 p.m.
