It's with a heavy heart that we write this. Ed, a kind, thoughtful Uncle / Great Uncle. His attention to detail especially with his wood working in his amazing work shop. His kind gift to Dale, A baby Muskoka chair, will stay with us and keep his memory with us. Our thoughts are with you Sylvia.

Westdale SS,1966: “Miss Piccolo, what is the result of this experiment”? “A clear, colourless, odourless gas, sir”. Meanwhile, there is a black plume emanating from the beaker. Never forgotten, Mr. Malkin, never forgotten. RIP, sir.-Rita Piccolo
Ed, my fraternal brother in masonry, was a remarkable person. Whilst I was teaching science at Chedoke Elementary in Hamilton, Ed. was head of Sc. @ S.A.M. He was an outstanding educator who was much ahead of the time in methods and mentorship to others like me. Many fond memories of his interest in, support and encouragement of both students and teachers too. Our world has lost one of its luminaries! May his family know how much Ed. was loved by many and admired as a model to be emulated. God bring you peace at this time of loss. Kindest regards and prayers of support. Charlie Hogg-Charlie Hogg
I’ve got fond memories of Uncle Ed of Christmas Holiday gathering over much of my early years, visiting my aunt and uncle in Hamilton, visiting my parents home and giving me helpful tips on my science homework. And I remember a nice visit that we made a number of years ago in Midland which Barbara and I really enjoyed.
RIP Uncle Ed we will miss you.

Cousin Edwin was my first cousin once removed. Although we both grew up in Parry Sound, the 12- year age difference meant that we rarely met. For me, Edwin was the kind of guy you always wished you could get to know better. A little-known fact is that he donated blood to my brother Garth when he was born, apparently saving his life. I spent a little time with Edwin few times after I had grown up - for example, in Penetang when he was taking care of our Aunt Vic and when he came to my mother's celebration of life. Each time, I was impressed by his wry sense of humour and idiosyncratic approach to life. Edwin certainly lived his life on his own terms. As I say, I wish things had worked out such that I could have got to know him better.-Malkin Howes
I remember Cousin Edwin as a gentle, funny man, easy to talk to. His Dad was my Great Uncle Eddie, who was in medical practice with his nephew, my Dad John Howes. My deepest sympathies to Sylvia and the family.-Lissa (Howes) Lowes
I remember Ed well from our school days in Parry Sound and our time together on Parry Sound’s Rep Fastball team in the mid 1950’s. Ed left Parry Sound at about the age of 19 to attend Clarkson University along with his buddies Jim Matthews and Allan Graham. My condolences to Ed’s family and friends.
Rest in Peace old friend!
