It is with deep sorrow that the family of Edwin announces his sudden passing at his home on July 25, 2012. Edwin will be lovingly remembered by his beloved wife, Florence; children, Richard (Alice), Annette (Scott Craig), Michelle (Normand Fontaine), Norman (Karen), David (Audrey), Carmelle (David Christiansen); fourteen grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Leo (Dorothy), Robert , Corienne (Tony Fabbro), Bernice Graham, Vernon (Margaret). He was predeceased by his brothers, Alfred, Raymond, William and sister, Dorothy Tobin. Edwin was born and raised in St. Benedict, SK on the family farm that he eventually took over and had since passed to his son, David. He was a proud farmer who enjoyed farm work and even helped with the spring seeding in this, his 84th year of life. Edwin was well read and self- taught. He was always up on current affairs and could carry on a conversation with anyone about anything. He always took an interest in his children and grandchildren's endeavours and was always excited to attend weddings, graduations, birthdays and other family affairs including gatherings at the family cottage at Wakaw Lake. Edwin sat on numerous boards and committees over the course of his life as he believed in social responsibility and giving back to the community. All of the many who knew and loved him will truly miss him. Vigil for Edwin will be held on Friday, July 27, 2012 at 7:00 p.m. followed by Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, July 28, 2012 at 10:00 a.m. Both services will be held at St. Paul's Roman Catholic Co-Cathedral, corner of Spadina Crescent East and 22nd Street East, Saskatoon, SK with a Private Rite of Committal at Woodlawn Catholic Cemetery at a future date. In lieu of flowers, Memorial donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Saskatchewan, 279, 3rd Avenue North, Saskatoon, SK S7K 2H8.
