Beloved husband of Margaret Nelson (nee Kaine). Cherished father of Edward (Ted) Nelson (Mary Jane Beal) and Michael Nelson (Tammy Card). Proud grandfather of Catherine and Michael, also missed by their mother Sarah Sanelli.
He is predeceased by his parents Earl Nelson and Isabel Nelson (nee Rudolph).
Edward was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia on September 17, 1945. He worked for Armtec (30 years) in the engineering group in the gates department and was a production supervisor at Dawson Road until his retirement.
He lived his life to the fullest, strongly committed to Martial Arts (over 50 years of training and teaching), enjoyed hunting, fishing, riding his motorcycle, flying planes and of course playing guitar with family and friends.
Cremation has taken place and as per Edward's wishes, there will be no formal memorial gathering.
As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated by the family.
