EDWIN WEBB (ED)
Born: Mar 17, 1931
Date of Passing: Feb 04, 2023Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
Peacefully, on Saturday, February 4, 2023, at almost 92 years of age, Ed passed at home, in Stonewall, surrounded by family.
He was predeceased by his wife of 56 years, Jean, and is survived by his five generation family: daughter Eadie McIntyre, grandchildren, John McIntyre (Linda) and Kathy Drury (Sheldon); four great-grandchildren, Jessica Nunn (Blair), Kyle Drury, Donnie McIntyre, and Erik Drury; three great-great-grandsons, Blake, Cole and Jack Nunn, as well as many friends and countless others who called him Uncle Ed.
Ed was born in London, Ontario on St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1931. He and Jean started their family in London before being transferred to Winnipeg in 1956 to open a printing plant for Somerville Belkin, where he printed everybody's milk cartons for 30 years. He was honoured as the most senior executive officer of the Canadian Union of Graphic and Allied Products for over 25 years.
Ed retired at 55 to enjoy his backyard pool, and his hobbies. He enjoyed golf, was an avid bowler, and followed his beloved Jets, Bombers, and Blue Jays. He kept meticulous, up-to-date stats for all. His large model railroad in his basement earned him the name "Grandpa Choo Choo". He was assistant superintendent of the Winnipeg Modular Railway, displaying in Winnipeg's malls, and delighting thousands of children for many years.
A celebration of Ed's life will be held at a date to be determined.
Ed's family would like to extend their thanks to the many home care nurses and workers who helped him stay at home until his passing.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I will always remember Uncle Ed. He was my Dads best friend. I remember always going to uncle Ed’s swimming in his pool and spending the whole day there. As children we loved his rec room which was a huge train station and we spend many hours watching the trains. When I had my boys I used to take my boys to the mall to see Uncle Ed and his train set up. Uncle Ed was always family to us …rest in peace now and my dad and you can watch the hockey games together again. My condolences to Eadie and her children, grand-children and great-grandchildren. He will be missed - Posted by: Lisa sutton (Uncle ) on: Feb 25, 2023
