1932 – 2016
Mr. Edward Joseph ‘Ed’ Weisgerber of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away in the Palliative Care Unit at the Red Deer Regional Hospital Centre on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at the age of 84 years. Ed was born on January 16, 1932 at Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. He was the second oldest child of George and Kay Weisgerber. While serving in the Canadian Armed Forces, Ed met and married his love, Lorraine. In 1979, the family moved to Central Park, located just north of Red Deer. Ed retired from the Armed Forces in 1980; he continued his service to others through his dedication with the County of Red Deer Fire Department. Ed was also a dedicated and valuable member of Sacred Heart Parish, always available to offer a smile and a helping hand. One of Ed’s favorite hobbies, besides fishing, was square dancing. Even after he lost Lorraine in 2007, Ed still continued to dance. Ed became invaluable in assisting with the care of his dear friend, Marie Landry, and became a treasured honorary member of the Landry family. Ed will be fondly remembered for his unique sense of humor, the twinkle in his eye and his charming smile. He will be sadly missed by all his many friends. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 5508 – 48A Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta on Thursday, June 9, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. with The Reverend Father Joseph Wroblewski celebrant.
