Eric passed away peacefully in Hospice on Wednesday, January 2, 2019 at the age of 90 years.

He was born on July 2, 1928, the eldest of four children. In the difficult times of the 1940’s, Eric went to work at the age of 15 for the Canadian Pacific Railway. He worked there as a machinist for forty-five years. He was an avid gardener and a very skilled handyman. He loved the natural wonders of Canada and was a kind and helpful friend.

Eric was predeceased by his only love Edwina, his wife of fifty-six years. He loved and valued his family. He is survived by his three siblings, Joyce (Richard), Ed (Shirley) and Gayle; four children, Jackie (Donn), Roy (Arlene), Bonnie (Michael) and James (Tara); as well as nine grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Thank you to all the wonderful caregivers at the Foothills Country Hospice.
