EDWARD JAMES MARRIOTT With wonderful memories and sad hearts, the family regrets to announce the sudden passing of Edward James Marriott on June 8, 2013 at 67 years of age. Ted was born in Brandon, Manitoba on August 10, 1945 and lived most of his early years in Boissevain. Since 1983, Ted and Glenda resided on an acreage outside of Stonewall. He joined the RCMP in 1965 and served in various postings in "F" and "D" division. He retired from the force in April 1991. He loved to be around heavy equipment and pursued his hobby of driving highway tractors for a number of years. Together Ted and Glenda enjoyed travelling and two of the trips Ted talked about the most was his trip to Australia / New Zealand and Alaska. Ted always liked to say how he had travelled to all 50 states plus Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica and Barbados. Ted and Glenda also enjoyed camping and fishing. He was predeceased by his father Joseph in 1967, his mother Kitty in 1993, sister Dale Davidson in 2012 and niece Kerri-Lee Moffat in 1985. Left to mourn his passing is his loving wife Glenda of 35 years, brother and sister-in-law Glen and Doris Moffat, as well as nieces and nephews. He was a kind, gentle, strong, loving husband and friend with a great sense of humour. His spirit experienced its greatest freedom surrounded by the deep love of his family and friends.

  • Ted was probably the quietest guy in the troop but there was no doubt he would do well as he was a good worker and good person. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Dale Smith (Former Troop Mate "D" 1965/66) on: Jul 07, 2013

  • I also was a member in Ted's Troop "D" 65/66 and enjoyed his sense of humour and considered Ted an all around good guy. Although we ran across each other in "D", I never had the opportunity of working with Ted. I too will mourn his loss. - Posted by: Paul Cheney (fellow member) on: Jul 07, 2013

  • While trying to locate a distant cousin's obituary I was shocked to read about Ted. We went to school together in Boissevain and I remember him as quiet, but a good sense of humor and fun to be around. Our paths crossed at a school reunion a few years back. He has left us way to early. My sincere condolences to all his family. - Posted by: Judy (Mains) Bell (School mates) on: Jun 17, 2013

  • Glenda, I'm not sure you will remember but I had the good fortune to have worked with Ted on Headingly Hwy Patrol. He worked on my section and was an avid truck inspector as I recall. It was a pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with him during my service. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Barrie Tweed (Friend and co-worker) on: Jun 16, 2013

  • Went through training with Ted, I remember him well, as a real gentleman, always smiling and recall him being teased in fun by our Riding Instructor Jessman. Ted took it with grace and we all admired him for that. My condolences to the family. - Posted by: Murray GEORGE (Troopmate 1965/66) on: Jun 12, 2013

  • Ted will be truly missed. I will miss Ted sitting around a bond fire and listening to mosquitoes zapping in Ted and Glenda's large bug zapper and Ted's smiling face when a large number of them got zapped at the same time.
