EDWARD (TED) HARDING (published on July 12, 2008)



EDWARD (TED) HARDING September 19, 1920 - July 6, 2008 Ted passed away peacefully at Charleswood Care Centre in Winnipeg on July 6, 2008. He will be lovingly remembered by Beryl, his wife of 64+ years; sons Brian (Bev) St. Albert, Murray (Dayle) Winnipeg; grandsons Chad (St. Albert), Chris (Calgary), Sean (Winnipeg) and granddaughter Jacqueline (Winnipeg). Ted was born and raised in Winnipeg and enlisted in the Canadian Army active service in 1940. Beryl and Ted were married on August. 20, 1943. After the war Ted was employed by Canada Metal Company in Winnipeg for 37 years until his retirement in 1985. Ted was involved in sports either as a participant, coaching Little League baseball and hockey at Riverview Community Club or in later years watching the grandchildren's baseball, bowling, ringette and curling. He was a member of the Valour Road Curling Club for 30 years and a member of the Wildwood Recreational Club, at which he very proudly was a part of a team that scored an Eight Ender . Ted was a Season ticket holder of the Blue Bombers from 1946-1986 and also of the Winnipeg Jets from 1979-1996. In 1998, Ted suffered a stroke while curling and unfortunately was unable to participate in the game he loved. However; he was still able to be a spectator and enjoyed the post mortems of every sport he attended (remember the salt and pepper shakers-mom?). In August of 2002 he suffered a second stroke and for the past five and one-half years has been a resident of the Charleswood Care Centre where he received excellent care. The family would like to extend our sincere appreciation to all the staff at the centre for their unending care and compassion. We know it extended Dad's time with us. Ted-Dad-Grandpa taught us all to be the best we could be under any circumstance; commitment to the task at hand and pride in not only what we do but what other people around you do as well. He had a huge impact on his wife, sons, daughters-in-law and grandchildren, which made him, in all of our eyes, an outstanding man. Cremation has taken place. At Ted's request there will be no service. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Charleswood Care Centre, 5501 Roblin Blvd. Winnipeg, MB R3R 0G8 or sent to a charity of your choice.
