Obituary of Edward C. Daer
Edward Charles Daer of Wingham, surrounded by his family, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 10th, 2018 at Wingham & District Hospital in his 76th year.
Ed is survived by his loving wife of 53 years, Nancy and his children Terry of Elmvale and Tricia of London. He was a wonderful grandfather to Josh and Alexis. Ed will be missed by his siblings Isabel (Peter) Campbell of Wingham, Ross Daer of Auburn, Ken (Janice) Daer of Clinton, Laura (Fred) Lawrence of Stratford and sisters-in-law Marilyn Craig of Blyth and June Daer of Kitchener. He will be fondly remembered by his many nieces, nephews and extended family. Predeceased by his parents Bert and Dorothy Daer, brother Lorne Daer, parents-in-law Charlie & Win Johnston, brother-in-law Don Craig and sister-in-law Evelyn Daer.
Ed was involved with many facets of the community throughout his life. Through his 32-year career as a police officer with Wingham Police Services or as a bus driver, referee, coach, at the golf course or at the ball diamond, he has touched the lives of many people.
His family would like to thank the wonderful staff at both Wingham & District Hospital and LHSC Cancer Centre for the excellent care they provided to Ed over these last two years, in particular Dr. Mark Moores, Dr. Shawn Edwards and Dr. Scott Ernst. We cannot thank our friends, families, co-workers and neighbours enough for the love and support we have received since the beginning of this journey.
Visitation will be held on Friday, November 16th at McBurney Funeral Home, Wingham from 2:00-4:00 & 7:00-9:00 pm. Funeral service will be held on Saturday at Wingham United Church at 11:00 am. Reverend Richard Hall officiating. Interment will take place in Wingham Cemetery.
