Edward Byam

October 24, 2018
Ed passed away peacefully on Oct 24th, after 93 years of living life to its absolute fullest. Husband to Joan, proud Father to Jeff, Gary and Ray, Father in law to Katherine and Theresa, and dear Grandad to Emily and Sarah.

He was a highly decorated WW2 and Canadian Army vet and a world traveler who commanded at least 12 languages. He was never one to shy away from an adventure or a microphone and his personality and generosity were the size of planet Earth; a place he explored with passion and zeal. He will be sorely missed by his family and all those that were fortunate enough to meet him.

Many thanks to the staff at the Priory in Victoria for taking such kind care of “Eddie”.

A celebration of life will be held later in the new year. Donations in lieu of flowers to Greater Victoria Eldercare Foundation.
