When I joined BW in 1969 Ed welcomed me and helped me in many ways. Rest In Peace my friend. - Posted by: Derrell Rodine (Friend) on: May 17, 2021
Dear Vi and Family. I was very sad to hear of Ed's passing. A warm, kind man and always a friend. I always enjoyed our visits through work at meetings and Ed's working times in Saskatoon. My deepest sympathy. Jim Ewen - Posted by: Jim Ewen (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2021
Our deepest condolences to Vi, Dan, David, James, and the entire Scrapneck family. I grew up next door to Ed and Vi, and the boys on Fleming Avenue, and one couldn't ask for a nicer neighbour. Ed would always greet me with a huge smile and big hello whenever I would see him. In later years, whenever I ran into Ed, it would be the same thing, a big smile and hello, and then we would catch up on how everyone was doing. The pride he had in his family always shone through, as the pride his family has for him for a life well-lived must shine through now. - Posted by: Neil and Carol Winter (Friend) on: Feb 18, 2021
