Edwin (Ed) Alexander HERD

October 6, 1924 – February 22, 2016

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ed on Monday, February 22, 2016 at the hospice at Trillium Lodge.

Ed was born in Saanich, moved to Duncan with his parents, then settled in Port Alberni. He married Grace (Gillan) in 1949, whom, after 52 years of marriage, passed away. He is survived by his loving sister, Dorothy (Martin-Taylor), Daughters A’Lona (Les), Anita (Barry) and his son Dan (Joy). He will be sadly missed by grandchildren, Len (Megan), Jeff (Char), Tami (Paul) and Chris (Rhonda) and 10 great-grandchildren. Ed spent his career at Woodward’s Department Store, where he was fondly remembered from the hardware department. The most important things in life were his children. He enjoyed the outdoors, hunting and fishing. He was an active Trap Shooter at the Port Alberni Gun Club. He enjoyed fishing for salmon, but was passionate about trout fishing. He travelled all through B.C .and had a few local lakes that he enjoyed, spending many hours with his good friend Angie at Fredrick Lake. He will always be remembered for his love of the outdoors and his gentle nature. No Service by request.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Ed’s name may be made to Oceanside Hospice.
