Ed Wyatt of Trail passed away with his family by his side on June 7, 2013 at the young age of 70 years.
Ed was born in Outlook, Saskatchewan. The love of hockey brought Ed and Elaine to Trail in 1965. In his younger years he made his living for a time as a Trail Fireman and Ambulance Attendant. Later with the trades of an electrician and plumber he built and renovated many homes in the area. He still retained his love of hockey and was the coach of the Castlegar Rebels and the Beaver Valley Nitehawks where he made many lifetime friendships with the players and others involved in the sport at the Junior level. He was a well know Realtor in the area and later a Broker, bringing ReMax to Trail in the early 90’s. Over the years he was a devoted husband and father, and cherished his 16 years of being the Greatest Papa to his 5 granddaughters! During his retirement he found great enjoyment while camping, boating, fishing and of course working on many different projects with his two sons.
He is survived by his loving wife Elaine; his children: Rob (Sonya, Rhylah, Reigha, Rannde) all of Montrose, and Joe (Brenda, Jasmine, Alexis) all of Beaver Falls.
