EDWARD NELSON MROZ
July 7, 1935 - November 5, 2021
Ed will be lovingly remembered by his four children: Danielle (Paul) Fraser, Tim Mroz, Krista (Jeff) Halmos and Tracy Mroz; grandchildren: Scott, Luke and Michaela Fraser; Danny, Eric and Ali Mroz; and Jillian and Isabelle Halmos; his brother Gary (Audrey) Mroz, sister Valerie Lupal and many nieces and nephews and extended family. Ed was predeceased by his wife Edmee (nee Coulombe); and his parents, Edward and Anastasia "Nellie" Mroz.
Ed was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba. In his youth he was very athletic, excelling in all sports including a sweep of his school Field Day in grade 11. He grew up in various farming towns, including Brokenhead, River Hills and Lac du Bonnet, until he left home for St. Paul's College at the age of 16. He graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Science - Civil Engineering in 1958 and spent many years working in Toronto for Proctor and Redfern and as a consultant before retiring in 2011. Ed was an avid golfer and a member of York Downs Golf Club, Unionville for over 40 years. He also enjoyed curling at Tam Heather Curling and Tennis Club, loved animals and experienced great joy in the accomplishments of his eight grandchildren.
The family would like to extend our appreciation and love to Jean Newberry for the friendship she shared with our Dad.
Due to Ed's wishes, cremation will take place and no service will be held.
Donations can be made to the Toronto Humane Society or the Ontario SPCA.

Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
To my dear friend Tracy, her siblings, nieces, and nephews. I was very saddened to learn of your father's/grandfather's passing. Such a difficult loss and I know he will be in your hearts forever. We have a saying in the Jewish religion that I hope you all will find comfort in; May his memory be for a blessing. Rest in peace. - Posted by: Tiffany Ben-Adiva (Friend of Tracy's) on: Nov 16, 2021
Dad was named after his father, so he didn’t know his actual name until he started school. Everyone had always called him Junior. I didn’t really get to know my father Edward Junior until after my mother Edmee (aka: the Buffer), passed away in 1998. Still to me, he was the unknown serial golfer, occasionally coming by for family dinners. He loved to golf and to watch golfing, was a good player and structured his life around it. Did I mention he loved to golf? Dad also liked to talk about his past. He was proud to have grown up in small town Manitoba. He enjoyed numbers and kept track of the most bizarre facts. He also liked cars. I did finally get to know my Dad these past few years. Always generous with us and very proud of his grandchildren's achievements. His Buddies tell me he could be fun at times! He enjoyed Bridge games at his Condo and the company of Jean Newberry. COVID kept us from seeing him for over a year. Once we could, we found that he was quite sick and he was gone just a few short weeks later. You didn’t make it to 95 Dad. REST IN PEACE. July 7, 1935 - November 5, 2021. - Posted by: Krista Halmos (Daughter ) on: Nov 13, 2021
