We are saddened to announce the passing of Ed Weldon.
Husband, dad, grampa, friend. He loved to sit and tell stories (and maybe a little gossip) over coffee and a smoke. A
lifelong logger and community fixture for the last 46 years, Ed enjoyed telling the
family he had 10 lives and was going to use them all. And he did, from a riding in a
runaway drill, getting swept away inside the cab of D7 cat during an avalanche to a plane crash amongst a few. Not always the easiest person, but always interesting. He will be missed, but not forgotten by his wife of 47 years, Bonnie, children, Nadine & Penny (George), rugrats, Connor, Alex, Mike,
Jennifer, Megan and Finn. We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude and
appreciation to the amazing staff at Port
Hardy Hospital, who were his second family (seriously, you guys spoiled him with the coffee available 24/7 and someone to listen to his stories – thank you!), to all our family and friends who rallied around, and seemed to know when we needed to talk, needed a hug or just needed to know someone was there with tea – your support and
understanding is amazing, thank you.
