Edward Angelo Francesco MAIFREDI

October 14, 1941 - March 29, 2013

"If you wish to know the road up the mountain, You must ask the man who goes back and forth on it."

Eddie passed away peacefully, surrounded by his family, on Good Friday from colon cancer at Lions Gate Hospital. International architect, lover of small wayward creatures and plants, artist, philanthropist, treasure collector, lover of opera and poetry, world adventurer, purveyor of international curious cuisine. He will always be loved by his wife and two children in North Vancouver and sister, brother and family in North Queensland. A devoted and involved member of St. Stephen's Parish community; he was a member of the Prayer group Alpha, and the Cursillo Community; St. Paul's Soup kitchen, where he did bread runs to the needy downtown; and many good things for the downtrodden on the east side. He had an unconditionally loving heart. Our heartfelt thanks to the caring and compassionate ICU staff at LGH who made each day more bearable and cared until the end. A memorial service is being held on Tuesday the 9th of April at 11am at St. Stephens Church in Lynn Valley. Prayers will be held the previous night at 7pm.
