Obituary for Edward “Ed” Stephen O’Neil
With profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Ed O’Neil on May 23, 2021 at 93 years of age surrounded by his children. Dear husband and best friend of the late Marcelline “Marcy” (nee Reaume). Cherished father of Tom O’Neil (Nene), Dennis O’Neil (Marilyn), Kelli Verbeek (Mike Boersma), Michael O’Neil (Heather) and the late Keith O’Neil (1979). Treasured grandfather of Matthew (Cassandra), Edward (Ashley), Frankie-Lee (Joe), Andrew, Mary, Noah, Heidi, Shea, and Sam.

Predeceased by Annie (Clayton), Cecilia (Ralph), Paul, Mag, and Gerald. Also survived by many nieces and nephews.
Ed retired from the GM Transmission Plant after 40 years of service. Ed and Marcy were huge baseball fans and followed their boys all around Ontario with their lawn chairs and cooler. Ed spent many hours taking care of his lawn and garden. He shared his tomatoes with the entire neighbourhood. Ed will be missed by everyone on the O’Neil corner in Oldcastle and the many visitors who stopped by for a beer. Thanks to the caring ICU staff at Met Hospital for all the wonderful support you showed our Dad. A very special thanks to Cindy Reaume who was his caregiver and friend for the last two years.
