Ed will be missed by his many nieces, nephews and friends.  

 Ed was born in Belgium and emigrated to Canada in 1959 working as engineering draftsman followed by a 25 year career in education. He taught in Cornwall, Sturgeon Falls and finally Ecole Secondaire Algonquin. Ed was a teacher first and foremost and even in retirement continued to teach his grandchildren the finer points of repairs and handiness as well as music.

 Ed was a talented musician and loved music, woodworking and a good repair challenge. He enjoyed biking and travelling the world with his family. Ed was known for striking up a conversation with anyone, making new friends wherever he went.

 Ed will be laid to rest by his family. As an expression of sympathy and in lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to a charity of choice. Online condolences can be made at www.hillsidefuneral.ca
