Edward H. Dowker

(Grampa Grizzly)

November 9, 1931 – August 8, 2010

Edward H. Dowker was born in Winnipeg, MB in 1931.

He moved to Kitimat in 1956 where he lived, raised his family, enjoyed life, and worked for Alcan until he retired in 1983.

Ed had many long time Kitimat friends whom he kept in touch with over the years.

He later settled in a drier climate at Grand Forks, BC, where on August 8, 2010, he died at peace at the age of 78, from cancer.

He was an only child, predeceased by his parents Thomas and Elsie Dowker and his wife Florence.

Ed is survived by his children James, Thomas, Richard, Vivian and Laura, twelve grandchildren and eighteen great grandchildren.

He had a big impact on all our lives and will continue to bring us many smiles and chuckles.
