Edward Irving Dunn

June 13, 1922 - May 23, 2016


Born in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba, Ed served in World War II in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a wireless operator. He was stationed in the Queen Charlotte Islands and overseas in Germany.
Ed came to Powell River in 1947 and worked as a papermaker for 40 years. While working at the mill, he also had a farm in Courtenay, producing tons of hay.
In 1993, Ed built ‘our shack’ on Texada, of which he was extremely proud.
Left with memories are his wife of 63 years Sylvia, children Alastair (Kathy), Michael (Chris) and Susan (Lindsay Louie), grandchildren Kelsey (Mariel), Brandon, Michelle, Cameron and Matthew, and siblings John (Erma) and Mae (Wally Wachta).
Special thanks to the staff of house six at Willingdon Creek Village for their care and compassion for Ed and our family the last seven months.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
