Munn, John Edgar “Ted”. John Edgar Munn, known as Ted to everyone who was blessed to know him, passed away April 26th 2014 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Ted was born in Belle River Prince Edward Island on October 12, 1937. During a successful career in the Airforce, Ted was stationed around the world including service in India, Pakistan, Lebanon, and more. Eventually his military career brought him back home to Canada, to the Airforce Base in Comox on Vancouver Island. It was there that Ted met his wife Sandra, and the two were married on April 27th 1968. Soon the couple moved to Ottawa Ontario, where their son Jason was born. Ted’s last posting in the Airforce was in Summerside PEI, and it was always special to him that his daughter Melissa was born there in his home Province.
After leaving the Service in 1979, Ted & family drove out West, back to British Columbia to put down roots in Chilliwack. Ted built a wonderful family home in Greendale, and the family enjoyed many happy years there. In 1993 the family moved to Sardis, to a street & neighbourhood filled with wonderful people who would become Ted & Sandra’s nearest and dearest friends. He would be so delighted with the tremendous love and support that these friends have provided over these last few difficult months.
Ted’s AirForce career centred around the repair of Search & Rescue helicopters, in fact every career path he took involved his great talent for mechanical know-how. If Ted Munn was in your life, odds are that he helped fix something in your house, your yard, or even your car. Everyone knew that “Teddy can fix it”. When Ted semi-retired, he began his own Handyman business – again putting his vast talents to good work.
Eventually the golf clubs began calling his name on a more consistent basis, and soon Ted could be found on the course with his golfing buddies. Ted was so proud of the friendships he created out on the golf course, he treasured every moment of it.
> Ted was also a committed member of the Mount Cheam Lion’s Club, and valued the work this organization undertakes.
Ted Munn was a devoted Husband, Father, Grandfather and Friend. He will be greatly missed.
Ted is survived by his wife Sandra, his son Jason, his daughter Melissa and her husband Mike, and his grandchildren Carter and Ava.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
A special thank-you to Doctor Jan Kroeze, Doctor R Bull, the wonderful people at both Chilliwack General Hospital and Cascade Hospice. Your dedication and compassion is greatly appreciated.
