(he knew where to catch “the Big ones”). Ed was also the sole caregiver for his brother Larry.

He was predeceased by his parents and older brother John.

Left to mourn his loss is his brother Larry and a large extended family of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

Arrangements were in care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.

Funeral Services were officiate by Harry Zeabin on Thursday, June 28, 2012 at Castlegar Funeral Chapel followed by interment at the Krestova cemetery.

The family would like to extend their heartfelt gratitude to the Search and Rescue Team, the Paramedics, the RCMP, all the volunteers who aided in the search for Ed, Helen Kabatoff and Sharon Nazaroff and all the other ladies for the service they provided, to Harry Zeabin for his officiating the service, to the singers for their melodious singing, to all the people who attended the service and to Leonard Balchewski and the rest of the grave-diggers.

Words cannot express the appreciation felt for everyone who offered their assistance in our time of loss.
