Our deepest condolences on behalf of my mom Elaine, my dad Leslie and I. Grandpa Ed was unique and the true definition of a family man. We take some comfort in knowing that he has now been reunited with Bradley and Debbie. RIP, you will be truly missed.
Auntie Jeanne and Family......We will always remember Uncle Eddie as being his own man. Always looking for a new challenge and usually mastering it. He was a great uncle to all of us DeLeeuw Boys and he always had time for us and was interested in what we were doing at the time. We were there in hiding at the cottage at Lake of the Woods when Uncle Eddie and Aunt Jeanne first started dating. Always remembered and loved. Harry and Jane DeLeeuw
May wonderful memories give you peace and comfort at this time. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Aunty Jeanne and Cousins,
My heartfelt condolences on your loss. Growing up and even now, Uncle Eddie has always been bigger than life to me. He was the toughest true "Gentleman" I ever had the pleasure of knowing. Uncle Eddie always made time to talk and he made sure he made everyone feel special! I will never forget that twinkle he would get in those eyes and the mischievous look he would get when he told one of his great stories about his many life experiences. His great pride and love for all of you shone through him always.
Au revoir Mon Oncle!
Mes tres sinceres condoleances a toi, Jeanne et a ta famille. I'll always remember him as a good friend with tons of stories to tell! I don't know of anyone but him, who managed to learn the use of a computer at age close to 80! Resourcefull he was. He is sadly missed here, on Camirand street.
Sincere condolences from Jacques Boucher, Bourassa & Camirands

Dear Ed, It is nice that I got to know you again in more recent years when you visited my Mother, Irene DeCruyenaere, during your visits to Winnipeg. It was also nice to exchanged emails from time to time, especially when you sent me family tree information. My Mom spoke highly of you and Jeanne so I am glad family kept in touch. You called me "Show Girl" as a child, and I liked that. You will be missed. Jeannie Larcombe (DeCruyenaere)
Sincere condolences, Jeanne. He is already missed at his Special "Church"at the corner of Fredmir and we have fond memories of our times together in Sin City. May you find comfort in having your family close by. God Bless, Mary & Mike
Jeanne, my sincerest condolences. I have many fond memories of Ed - his winemaking and sense of humour. It was a pleasure knowing him.
