Edward Ian McLellan

August 9, 1954 – May 7, 2022

Eddy passed peacefully after struggling many years with end stage cardiac disease.  He was predeceased by his parents, Don & Blandine and three brothers, Don, Patrick, Roderick. 

He leaves behind his family whose hearts are broken.  His wife,  Sharon, his children Cale (Asami) (Kenji -June 2022), Lisa (Ben) Liam & Devon, Jeremy (Camille) Ella, Stephan (Alyssa) Peyton and Aidah;  his brothers Jim (Linda), Bruce, Stuart, Kevin (Kim);  sisters, Beatrice (Bob), Dorothy (Ron), Sherrin (Jerry), Jeanna (Barry) and many nieces and nephews.  

 I first met Eddy when I was 17, I thought he was very good looking, and he was kind and a quiet man. He was always very supportive of me and was my best friend.  He was a good husband, that’s who he was. 

 Eddy loved his children and grandchildren, they were his life. The children remember him for his limitless patience, his laugh and his insights. Nothing could get him down. He was so strong for the kids when they needed him. He cheered them up fun and silliness. They knew they could always count on Dad. He taught the children what it meant to be part of a family. He was a good good father, that was who he was.

Eddy was also devoted to his mom after his dad passed. He would visit her regularly and they were very close. He loved to take the kids and go over and visit her, brightening her day and keeping the family connection strong. He was a good son,  that was who he was.

Ed was also close to his brothers and sisters.  He was the 10th of 12 kids, and they all stayed close to each other and Ed had nothing but good memories growing up on Brooklyn Street.  He was a good brother, that was who he was. 

He worked selling paper and was the company’s best salesman for years. He had a good relationship with all his clients.  He was very proud that he could tell you anything about paper just by the feel and mark.  After he left that job he worked for many years at photo radar; a job he really enjoyed, especially the fellowship with his co-workers.  He was a good friend and good worker, that was who he was. 

No formal service will be held but a Celebration of Life will be held  on Monday May 23rd from 5 to 7 pm at the Viscount Gort Hotel.  Please stop by and share any memories with his family.
