August 24, 2018
Mr. Edward Kemp late of Abbotsford BC, formerly of Chilliwack, passed away peacefully on August 24, 2018 at the age of 81. He is survived by his 4 sons; Doug (Beryl), Brad (Debbie), Derrick, Brian and daughter, Melody (Grant) and leaves behind 12 grandchildren and 5 great grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife Violet in 2014.
Ed was a career truck driver. He truly loved the big rigs, retiring from Dairyland after 25 years of service. He played both hockey and baseball but was probably best known as a ‘Coach’. His strong presence at the hockey rink and on the ball field will be remembered by many. Ed’s favorite past time was camping and fishing and that love was passed onto many of the men in his family. He loved watching the birds in the backyard and spending time at his trailer in Birch Bay.
Ed was blessed to meet a wonderful lady, Gail Epp, to share the last 3 years of his life with.
At Ed’s request, there will not be a formal service. A small gathering of friends and family will take September 15th.
