HOWARD; George Edward “Ed”

July 30, 1961 ~ January 19, 2016

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Ed on Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at Abbotsford Regional Hospital surrounded by his family after a short battle with cancer. He was 54 years old. Ed was born in Innisfail, Alberta July 30, 1961 to George and Deloras Howard. He resided in Alberta until the age of six when his Mom and Dad decided to try life on the coast. Ed grew up in Langley where he met his wife Shannon. Shortly after their marriage in 1988 they moved to Aldergrove and this is where they raised their family. He was well known and respected as both a truck driver and machine operator in the excavating industry. In the spring Ed could be found at the baseball diamond cheering on his kids or coaching women’s fastball. He loved to feel the wind in his face with long Sunday rides on his Harley. Ed is lovingly remembered by his parents George and Deloras Howard, wife Shannon (nee Campbell); 3 children Travis (Angela) and grandson Addison; Joshua and Megan; siblings Terri (Michael), Jim (Debbie) and Sharon (Andrew) as well as numerous nieces and nephews. A celebration of Ed’s life will be held Sunday, January 31 at 1:00 p.m. at the Aldergrove Legion, 26607 Fraser Highway, Aldergrove. Special thanks to the nurses and doctors in the emergency room at Abbotsford Regional Hospital for their thoughtfulness and care in our time of need. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Ed may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
