1939 - 2021

It is with great sadness that the family announces the peaceful passing of Ed Sabourin. At the age of 81, after a long and courageous battle of lung disease and CLL, our loving father and grandpère was called Home to heaven on the momentous day of Good Friday, April 2, 2021.
His memory is cherished by his beloved wife of 58 years, Murielle (Dupuis); daughter Joanne (David) Plamondon; sons, Darrell (Annette), and Serge; son-in-law Martin Ramsaurer; his grandchildren, Jean-Eric (Sydney) Plamondon, Janelle (Robert) Plamondon, Geneviève Sabourin, Morgan and Reed Bingham, Jordan and Peyten Sabourin, Léa Ramsaurer; and three great-grandchildren, Cruz Plamondon, William and Raven Marion.
He is survived by his siblings, Beth (René), Syl (Kathy), Henri (Kim), Claire, Louise (Gilbert); numerous nieces and nephews that he loved dearly.
Ed was predeceased by his daughter Christiane; his parents, Armand and Hortense; his brother Claude, and sister Léa.
Ed retired as a foreman in the paint department for the Winnipeg School Division #1 for 30 years. He was recognized as a dedicated painter in St. Norbert and Buffalo Point, MB. His passion in life was spending time with his family and grandchildren camping, fishing, boating, water skiing, and hanging out at the cottage. From a young age, Ed was an avid reader and became quite the storyteller. He could strike up a conversation with just about anyone with his endless treasury of stories. The grandchildren will forever remember the precious stories "Pépère" would proudly share of their childhood accomplishments. Ed loved meeting people wherever he went, especially while spending their winters down south or during their international travels. He will be missed by many!
Ed was very appreciative of all the caring support he received from his family and caregivers. A special thanks to Dr. Johnston and the Oncology team, his Respirologists Dr. Homik and Dr. McKinnon.
In honour of Ed, you may donate to your charity of choice.
A private family service will be held. The recorded service will be available for viewing by Sunday, April 11, 2021, on the Voyage Funeral Home YouTube Channel.
