Ed Monsell, late of Vancouver, BC gently passed away April 2, 2016 at the age of 67 years. He was born in Powell River, BC. Predeceased by David and Connie, loving Father and Mother. Survived by brother Mel, sister-in-law Randi, nieces Barbra and Shelley (Mark), great uncle to Jordan, Maddie and Alexa. We miss him greatly, having been a big part of our lives. Ed graduated from David Thompson High School then worked as a pipefitter at Burrard Dry Docks, Vancouver Ship Yards and finally U.B.C. Ed was an avid gardener creating beautiful floral gardens and was an equally talented painter as seen in the Our Canada magazine, Nov/Dec 2004 issue, pg 59. The family would like to thank all the caregivers who helped Ed these past two years, especially the caring staff at Eden Care Centre in Chilliwack. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday April 22nd from 2:00 to 4:30 pm at the Langley Sandman Hotel (N. of the Hwy), 8855 – 202nd Street. No flowers, thank you.
