Eddy was born on May 25, 1950 in Winnipeg, Manitoba and spent his early years in Gonor, Manitoba. After graduating high school he attended the University of Manitoba, where he received his BA and Bachelor of Education. He taught for many years in the Louis Riel School Division which was his passion, until he retired due to illness. He served on many Manitoba Teachers Society Committees and volunteered with other organizations. Ed loved movies, sports, reading, spending time on the computer, gardening, world travel, and conducted inservices all across Canada and the U.S. One of his biggest accomplishments was inaugurating the Terry Fox torchlight run, they raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for cancer research. Over the years Eddy has dealt with a number of illnesses, his courageous battle is over. He is pain free and resting in peace.
The family would like to thank the Maples where Eddy lived out the last years of his life, as well as Health Sciences Centre Intensive Care Unit for all the care and compassion they gave Eddy.
Interment will take place on Friday, March 19 with a small group of Ed's family and friends.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)
My deepest sympathy for the loss of Edward. My father was a neighbour of Edwards at Maples and Edward was a bright light at care home. We had many great conversations about many topics over 18 months I spent time caring for my dad. He loved the lunches he spent with his sister and lockdown was so hard on him My last memory of Edward was the day he waited for help when there was no staff at the home and he came out of his room and looked straight at me and asked for help - I never forget how tired and pale and scared he looked - heartbreaking. Edward Rest In Peace and thank you for you compassion and kindness. Eddie and Calisto Family - Posted by: Eddie Calisto- Tavares (Friend ) on: Mar 31, 2021
So glad to have known and worked with Ed. He lived a very difficult life but he gave far more to his community than many including me. Ed used to have me come in to his classes on special occasions to read for his students because he liked the way I read. Ed initiated many programs among the teachers of what was then known as St. Vital School Division. Perhaps his best known was the Terry Fox run. Ed was always eager to help a fellow teacher when he could. Sadly, since retirement and moving to BC, I have lost contact. He'll have a special place in the hereafter. Condolences left to grieve. - Posted by: FRANK PROUTEN (FELLOW TEACHER) on: Mar 16, 2021
Mr. Muzyczka was the teacher I needed. I hope everybody has had a teacher like Mr. M. I remember circling the gravel perimeter at VW 32 times to impress Mr. M for Terry Fox. I remember selling 84 dollars of peanut brittle and candy citrus fruit because whoever sold the most got to go for lunch with Mr. M. I remember candlemaking, a sunflower seed-spitting competition (Jim Barr won) to raise money for diabetes; I remember Mr Muzychzka played with us at recess. I remember being heartbroken because he went on leave that year. I remember his return. I remember. I remember grade 4 in 83, 38 years ago because I had a remarkable year with a remarkable man. Forever your student, Ryan Cancilla. - Posted by: Ryan Cancilla (Student) on: Mar 15, 2021
Ed was a great and dedicated teacher. He strived to make education a well grounded art. His contributions to the discipline of Mathematics are well known in Manitoba and further. Later, during illness, he never gave up. Rest in Peace Ed, you have earned it. - Posted by: Norbert Philippe (Colleague) on: Mar 15, 2021
