December 3, 1944 – December 25, 2022

With heavy hearts, we announce that Ed joined his Lord Saviour when he passed peacefully at St. Boniface Hospital at the age of 78 years.
He is survived by his loving wife Marie Unger; sons, Richard (Leigh) and Gerard, Robert; daughter Samantha (Michael) and was Pappy to four grandchildren and one great-grandchild; stepchildren and extended family and friends.
Edward was a devout Christian who loved the Lord and spent the majority of his life sharing his faith with others, including time working at Union Gospel Mission, founding Forward House Ministries and most recently enjoying a position at Life Light Ministries.
Ed and Marie loved to travel and spent many happy winters in Florida where they made many friends.
Ed's family kindly requests that his friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour his memory by visiting his tribute page at A photo-biography, as well as memories and stories published by those who knew him are available there.
In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The family would like to thank the staff in the Cardiac Care ICU for their care and compassion shown to Ed and his family during his last days.
In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
