Edgar Berry 28 décembre 2016

Edgar William Berry died December 28, 2016 at Extendicare Red Deer. Born in Loverna, SK he received his early education at Antelope Hill School near the home farm. Following high school in Kindersley he attended SAIT studying electronics. Ed spent the next fifteen years working in radio, telegraph and telephone communications, a career that began with the air force ground crew in Clinton, ON and led to travel to various exotic Canadian spots, the Alaska Highway, Kenora, Moose Jaw, Uranium City and Fort Smith to name a few. The highlight might have been work on the DEW Line at Cape Dyer on Baffin Island where he stayed for three years. A return to the south brought him to Vegreville with AGT. In 1965 he made a career change and attended U of A for a B.Ed after which he taught electronics at Red Deer Vocational High School, now Lindsay Thurber Comprehensive. Out of many class projects the building of Hero the robot with a class in the mid 1980’s was most memorable.
Following retirement in 1990 Ed found more time to pursue his many hobbies, anthropology, Spanish, archaeology, travel, car restoration, and antique furniture collecting. He especially enjoyed an RDC archaeological trip to the U.S. Four Corners into Anasazi country. As well he travelled with Operation Amigos to Juarez, MX where the group built school houses for the locals.
Predeceased by brothers George and Norman, Ed is survived by his longtime partner, Anita, two brothers, Gordon and Mark (Vivian) and numerous nieces and nephews as well as grand-nieces-and-nephews.
As Ed wished there will be a private burial. In his memory if friends wish donations can be made to Red Deer Regional Hospital Foundation and Extendicare.
