He played Hockey, Baseball, Football and was involved with the Scout's Canada program for many years. He started as a cub and continued to become a leader. As Edward grew he was independent and started working at a young age. He delivered newspapers at the age of 10 and continued to do deliveries throughout his career. He delivered for grocery and drug stores on his bike, and then continued to deliver for Canada Post. Though Edward was limited in his physical ability he wasn't limited with his ability to help a friend or family member. Edward enjoyed driving and often helped friends move and or get to an appointment. Edward liked cars and often talked about his car trip to Mexico with a few buddies. Edward had many vehicles: go-cart, motorcycle, a few different cars with his favourite being his 61 Black Impala, Chevy Truck and his Ford van. Edward had many hobbies, which include photography, running for council, taping and recording movies and family videos. Edward enjoyed spending time with his nephews and nieces and arranged many family events. Edward was a member of Independent Living Resources Centre (ILRC) and Manitoba League of Persons with Disabilities Inc. (MLPD). The family would like to thank the nurses and doctors at the Seven Oaks Hospital for their gentle care of Edward.
