Edward lived most of his life in Valleyview Centre in Moose Jaw, SK. Then he moved home to Southwest Group home in Swift Current with his two friends Quinton and Darrell. There he had a very happy and wonderful life. In April of 2020 he was moved to Elrose Health Care Centre. He was cared for beyond measure at both places. Edward LOVED, LOVED music and singing. Some of his other likes were spending time with friends and family, cartoons and being read to. Picnics and outdoor activities were also on the top of his list. Edwards smile will be greatly missed.
Edward’s family would like to give a HUGE thank-you to everyone involved with making his life wonderful for him!
