Edson LeRoy Zwicker

June 7, 1930 - May 18, 2011


Edson L. Zwicker, beloved husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, passed away at the age of 80, on May 18, 2011, in Powell River, British Columbia, from the complications of old age. Edson was born June 7, 1930, in Middlewood, Nova Scotia, living most of his childhood and young adult life in Hebb’s Cross, Nova Scotia. In 1963, he moved his family to Whittier, California, where he became a successful business owner and real estate investor. He retired to Powell River in 1985, bought a boat, and fished almost everyday for the next five years. Slowed down by a stroke in 1990, he amazed his doctors by relearning how to do almost everything. He especially enjoyed visiting his family, walking his dog and watching the Blue Jays’ games.
Edson Zwicker is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Alice (Hartling) Zwicker; his three children, Peggy, married to Larry Ochoa; David Zwicker, married to Geri Filet; and Pam, married to Steve Wilhelm. His grandchildren include Matthew (April) Ochoa, Benjamin (Tricia) Ochoa, Anna (Stephen) Kia, David (Becky) Zwicker Jr., Joshua Zwicker, Tim (Elizabeth) Zwicker, Sarah (Emmanuel) Salinas, Jeni (Brett) Wilhelm, Julie (Daniel) Wilhelm, and Brenda (Ryan) Paterson. He is also survived by seven great-grandchildren: Aubree and Christian Ochoa; Eric and Ethan Zwicker, whose sister Briana, is with the Lord; Shoshana Zwicker; Connor Kia; and Rebeca Salinas. They will all miss his sense of humour and generous nature.
A memorial service will be held on Friday, May 27 at 4 pm at the Faith Lutheran Church, 4811 Ontario Ave., in Powell River. A light dinner in the fellowship hall to follow.
