December 6, 1950 - July 24, 2020

With deep sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Ed Hargrave on July 24, 2020, at the age of 69 years.
He was predeceased by his parents, Roy and Eleanor, and his beloved wife Maria who he spent 30 years with.
He is survived by his children, Adam and Melissa, and grandchildren, Samantha, Joey, Mila and Beau. He is also survived by his brothers, Dwight and Grant, and many other family and friends.
Ed worked for Winnipeg Transit as a bus driver for 25 years where he made many friendships. He enjoyed Wednesday morning coffee with the boys from work during his retirement.
Ed's happiest moments were with his grandchildren. They were his pride and joy, and he took great pleasure in being around them.
Ed will be remembered as a loving father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. His sense of humour touched many and his larger than life personality, and one of a kind laugh will be truly missed.
A funeral service will be held Friday, July 31 at 1:00 p.m. at Cropo Funeral Chapel with interment to follow.

  • I have been in the Hargrave family for 26 years and my memories of Ed and Maria and their children are so special. I even remember his Mom, Eleanor, taking my son Stephen on as her grandson. Ed loved our Pugs and when he was in the hospital Grant gave him a picture of Jude who is three and new to our family. He liked him especially because he is black and he had Peggy and Bentley in his lifetime. Grant told me they had one as a young family when his Dad got one for them. I know that Melissa and Adam and their families must feel the loss as I have been through it as well but the memories will always stay alive with you. I wish I could have been with you at this time but I felt it was more important that Grant be there for you and yours. Of course he now will be with your wonderful Mother Maria and Grandmother Eleanor forever. I wish all of you the best always and may his soul be bound up in that of eternal life. Our Love, Uncle Grant, Auntie Joan, and Stephen - Posted by: Joan and Grant Hargrave (Brother and Sister-in -law) on: Jul 30, 2020

  • Eddie, Dwight, my brother Rick and I were throwing rocks at street lights when we were 12 or 13. As soon as we all threw rocks some guy with a car drove up to the stop sign and, wouldn't you know it, one hit the guy's windshield. We all took off being chased by a guy in a uniform yelling "Stop or I'll shoot". Turns out he was a fireman. We dodged through the houses and got home safely, or so we thought. A few minutes later there was a knock on the door and there he was wanting his windshield repaired. Through a bit of detective work we discovered that Dwight or Eddie had thrown the rock and Roy paid the guy off. Not big trouble but still a memory almost 60 years later. Great friend when we were kids. Hadn't seen Eddie in years but still would have considered him a friend, we'll all miss him. - Posted by: Lloyd Searcy (Childhood friend) on: Jul 29, 2020
