BUTCHER, Edwin “Ed” Arthur November 13, 1937 October 9, 2012
15 months ago, Ed was diagnosed with brain cancer (GBM). He subsequently underwent surgery and shortly thereafter, chose a return to Calgary for treatment. On Tuesday October 9, 2012, Ed succumbed peacefully with dignity, class and humor. Ed was loved deeply by his children Geraldine Wrubleski (Sheldon) and Timothy Butcher; his grandchildren Emma and Sara; his niece Lisa Mostowy (Stephan); and his nephew Michael Butcher (Jasmine). He will always be remembered and loved by his girl-friend of 27 years Diane Haggert of Kinmount, ON and her children Kenneth (Roma) and Kory (Melanie). Ed genuinely loved meeting people and found great joy in learning their stories. He surrounded himself with family and friends from his sales days and many hobbies. History and reading were his greatest loves and he will be missed for his endless humor and his encyclopedic knowledge. As per his wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his name to the Seniors Happy Group, Hillcrest Extendicare, 1512 8th Ave. NW, Calgary, Alta. T2N 1C1. Messages of condolence may be forwarded to the family at www.piersons.ca. Arrangements are in care of PIERSON’S FUNERAL SERVICE. Telephone 403 235-3602.
