GOUNDRY: James Edward George “Ed” of Leamington, Ontario

Posted by on April 27, 2014

W.S.Frame, GoundryEd copyGoundry, James Edward George “Ed”

May 29, 1935 – April 25, 2014. Ed passed away gently and peacefully Friday, April 25, 2014 at Leamington District Memorial Hospital surrounded by his family. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 55 years, Mary (Siller); his children, Sandy (Liz) and Jim (Kathy); his treasured grandchildren, Vicki, Nic, Heather and Jordan; his beloved dog, Max, and grand-dog, Ben; his brothers and sisters, Bill (Marg), Sheila (Mike), Peggy (Gordon) and Robert (Cindy Lou); his brothers-in-law, Ted (Pat) and Nick (Carolyn), as well as many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brothers Edgar (Eunice) and Fred “Busey” (Hilda).

Ed was born in Cape Breton, and upon reaching the ripe old age of 17, joined the Air Force, where he served for the next 19 years. During this period he and his family lived in North Bay, Ont., in the Alberta towns of Bonneyville and Cold Lake, and in Baden-Baden, Germany. While in the Air Force, Ed took night and correspondence courses to finish his high-school education. He eventually retired “early” in order to go back to school full-time to get his teaching degree. To that end, Ed and family relocated to Leamington, Ont., which was both close to Mary’s parents and the University of Windsor. Upon graduation, he joined the staff at Essex District Secondary School where, for 18 years, he taught geography, economics and electrical, and also coached the Raiders boys basketball team. Ed the dad and Ed the grandfather never tired of extolling the virtues of a good education.

Upon retiring, Ed spent his time doing the things he loved. He absolutely adored travel and was always planning the next trip, whether it be to Cuba, Tremblant, Whistler or Vancouver. He and Mary also spent many summers “at the trailer” in Tobermory, and then more recently, in Elliot Lake, where they made many friends and enjoyed backyard access to “good fishing” (though no one has actually ever witnessed him catching anything). He was an avid golfer, a lousy (see above) but determined fisherman, an inveterate garage saler (he loved a deal), and a surprisingly good wood carver. All of this “living” he pursued with Mary at his side, and many can attest to the tender image of the two of them walking hand in hand wherever they went. Ed will be fondly remembered by all who knew him for his sense of humour and endless bag of (bad) jokes.

The family would like to thank the many medical staff and other health-care professionals who helped Ed when he was failing, and especially during his recent stays in the hospital.In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated. Visitation at the Reid Funeral Home & Reception Centre, 14 Russell St. Leamington (519-326-2631) on Sunday, April 27, 2014 from 2-5 p.m. Funeral Service to celebrate James’ life on Monday, April 28, 2014 at 11 a.m. from the Funeral Home. Condolences may be shared with the family at www.reidfuneralhome.ca.
