Andrea and I were very saddened to hear of Ed's passing. He always was quick with a good joke whenever we would see him. Our hearts go out to Joyce, Paul, Brian and their families. Terry and Andrea Wakely.

Dear Joyce, Paul and family, I am so very sad to hear of Ed's passing. I had the great honour of spending many years with Ed at the Whitby Rec Centre, exchanging stories and many jokes. Ed was one of those rare friends that once he was your friend, he was your friend for life. I consider myself so very lucky to have been able to share some great times with Ed and for that I am forever grateful. I know he is going to be keeping watch over us.
