Edward Francis John Schuss
May 12, 1932 – November 16, 2012
Ed passed away on November 16 in the Multilevel Care at Kitimat General Hospital. His funeral was held November 22, 2012 at the Presbyterian Church and interment followed at the Kitimat Municipal Cemetary.
Ed was born May 12, 1932 in the city of Vancouver, BC. In 1958 he married the love of his life, Betty. In 1961 they moved to Chilliwack with their son, Garry. In the following four years Gordon, Michael and Laurie were born. The family moved to Kitimat in 1974 where Ed was employed by the District of Kitimat at the new water treatment facility. He worked for the DOK for 23 years, retiring in 1995. Ed loved music; whether it be playing, teaching or adjudicating. He passed that love on to his four children. He was a gunsmith and a marksman but his passion was the accordion. He enjoyed Chinese cooking, playing crib, watching Wheel of Fortune and the time spent with his grandchildren. They fondly remember him teaching them his favourite card tricks and the recorder. He spent the last three years of his life in Multilevel Care where he enjoyed visits with family and friends.
Ed was predeceased by his wife Betty, brother John, sister Anne and nephew John.
Ed is lovingly remembered by his children; sons Garry (Cindy), Gordon and Michael; daughter Laurie (David Wright); his grandchildren Derrek, Graeme, Terah, Celina, Jenna, Aimee, Emily, Rebecca, Steven and Sarah; his great-grandchildren Cahlysta, Ava and Madison; his sister Rose, and many nephews and nieces.
The Schuss Family would like to thank everyone for the cards, flowers, thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Special thanks to Dr. Huang and Staff of Multilevel Care at KGH.
Donations can be made in Ed’s memory to the Alzheimer’s Association.
He will remain in our hearts forever.
