Edgar was born and raised in Wainwright and was blessed with a happy childhood enjoying summers at Clearlake, time in Young Peoples, many years in Sea Cadets and participating in hockey, curling and golf.
After school he worked at the Husky Refinery before deciding to enter the field of Education. Edgar spent his adult years working as a teacher and principal in Fort McMurray where he was well respected by students, parents and educators. He was known for his kindness, fairness and wisdom. It is here Edgar joined the Masons and has just completed 50 years with the organization.
After retirement, he built the cabin at the lake where he spent many happy days watching birds, listening to music, having coffee with friends, cheering his awesome Oilers and travelling to distant locales.
