William Gordon (Bill) EDGAR



William Gordon (Bill) Edgar passed away peacefully at the Red Deer Regional Hospital on March 28, 2014 at the age of 71 years. Born to Margaret and William Edgar, he was raised along with his younger siblings Barb, Peg and Jim on the Edgar farm in the Crossroads District west of Red Deer. Bill, Jill and their children carried on the long Edgar tradition of farming on their farm out in the Burnt Lake District. His parents Margaret and Bill Senior and his first wife Nora predeceased Bill. Surviving Bill are his wife Jill, his daughter Lorrie (Ralph) Cervi, his son Ian (Sarah) Edgar and his precious granddaughters Chloe Ann and Peyton Rose Edgar. Bill is also survived by his siblings Barb (Dick) Goodall, Peg Edgar, Jim (Joan) Edgar, his special Uncle Gordon Pearce, sister and brother in-laws, many cousins, nieces and nephews. Like his grandfather, Robert Edgar, Bill had a lifelong passion for the outdoors; including farming, hunting, trapping, fishing, camping and horse back riding out in the West Country. The family would like to express their sincere thanks to the caring, compassionate staff of the 1400 Household at Michener Extendicare and to the doctors and nurses in Emergency at the Red Deer Regional Hospital. There will be a family graveside service at 11:00 a.m. on April 11, 2014 at the Red Deer Cemetery.
