Obituary of Edward Wielgoz
It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Edward on Monday, May 24, 2021. Edward passed peacefully after a courageous battle with heart disease and dementia, finally succumbing to a pulmonary embolism.
Edward “Ed” was predeceased by his parents Andrew and Mary; brother Carl; sister in law Cynthia; brother in law Frank Tarr; nephew Terrance Wielgoz and niece Donelda Blattner.
Left to celebrate his life and cherish his memory are his former wife and special friend Hazel; sons Darin (Denise), Mark and Dayne (Tamara); daughter Jewel; grandchildren Kristin, Charissa, Liam, Kassandra and Kendra; brothers Melvin (Elizabeth) and Henry (Irene); sisters Elsie Blattner and Matilda Tarr; as well as three great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ed was born and raised on a farm near Bankend, SK. While still in his teens he ventured out on his own and spent his first few working years in Regina and B.C. In 1959, he began his career at Ipsco (Evraz) and stayed with them until his retirement.
During his retirement years he enjoyed gardening and was very proud of the tomatoes and cucumbers he grew. Ed had a great love for all sports, but especially hockey and football, and spent many weekends watching his favourite teams on television.
The family would like to thank the medical staff at the Pasqua Hospital and Wascana Rehabilitation Center, as well as the caregivers at Santa Maria Care Home for the wonderful and compassionate care they provided for Edward. A special thank you to Paragon Funeral Services and Regina Memorial Gardens for the compassionate service provided.
A Private Family Service will be held on June 26, 2021. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
