EDGAR (ED) THOMAS DUFFY April 1, 1923 - May 1, 2016 Peacefully, with family by his side, our Dear Husband, Dad, and Grandpa passed away on Sunday, May 1, 2016 at the age of 93. He will live on in the hearts of Eileen, his wife of 66 years; son Terry (Marie); daughters Laura (Mike) and Linda (David); and grandchildren Steve (Connor), Shauna and Erik. Ed was predeceased by his parents, Edward and Mary, sister Kathleen, and brothers Jim, Bill, Maurice, Frank, Charles, Ken, Leo and Al. Ed was born in Lanigan, Saskatchewan and spent his formative years growing up in Rosthern, Saskatchewan. He enlisted in the RCAF in 1942 and served overseas in the U.K. On his return in 1945 he settled in Winnipeg where he met and married the love of his life in 1949. Ed and Eileen raised their family in Fort Garry. Ed worked with Canada Post for 38 years. Ed enjoyed sports, especially curling and golf. He was a longtime member of the Fort Rouge Curling Club and represented Manitoba in the 1968 National Postal Employees Curling Classic. He was an avid Jets fan and enjoyed sharing his season tickets with family. Ed especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren. In later years, he spent many hours watching curling, hockey, baseball, tennis, and other sports. He was not bashful about providing his advice on curling strategy to the teams he watched on TV. Edgar was also a history buff and enjoyed travelling with Eileen. The family would like to thank the staff at the Victoria General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of choice. A private service has been held at Assumption Cemetery, 3990 Portage Avenue.

  • My sincere condolences to Eileen & the Duffy family. I have fond memories curling with Ed & playing cards with Ed & Eileen many years ago. I was apart of that Manitoba Curling Team played in Calgary in 1968. What a great week that was. Ed was a great curler & team player. His sense of humour always kept us loose. He will be dearly missed. - Posted by: Brian Taylor (Friend.... fellow curler) on: May 07, 2016

  • Edgar was a quiet, kind individual. I have many good memories of his visits, along with his brother Leo, to spend time with my Dad, John Keough, in his home in Headingley. I was always so very thankful that they took the time to visit with their elderly cousin. Dad really enjoyed those visits - they made his day. My Deepest Sympathy to you Eileen, Terry and Mary, Laura and Mike, Linda and David and all the family. He will be missed.
