May 16, 1948 – April 30, 2014
Edward John Armstrong, loving son, brother, nephew, cousin, partner, father, uncle, grandpa, mentor, colleague and friend has departed for parts unknown.
A career forester, racer of jeeps, photographer, avid reader, computer wizard, daredevil, poker player, tequila connoisseur, world traveller, and amateur comedian, Ed was predeceased by his father, Walter, and will be much missed by his mother, Jean; siblings Bob, Ken, Loretta, Janet and their families; partner, Dolores and daughters Sarah and Rachel; daughters Errin and Rhianda and their husbands Grant and Dustin; and grandkids Jack, Wesley, Frances, Kaela and Christopher.
Born in Vancouver, Ed lived and left his mark just about everywhere in B.C., as well as spending time in Inuvik and Canmore. It is with great sadness that we wish him farewell, but after a long and dignified struggle with cancer we are comforted to know that he is once again free to roam the forests he so loved.
Celebration of life to be held over the Labour Day long weekend. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
In lieu of flowers, please consider planting a tree in Ed’s honour.
