Branch: 1st Depot Battalion, Alberta Regiment

Edward was born in Dundalk, Ontario on October 9, 1895. At the age of 18, he came west to the Peace River country and filed on a homestead at SW 26-72-6-W6. He was drafted into the Canadian Army in June of 1918; his brother Harold also served. Because it was so near the end of the war, Edward served only in Canada. He returned to Grande Prairie after the war, but moved to Edmonton in 1923. In 1940, Edward married Elsie Ellen Bowles. He died in Eugene, Oregon on May 29, 1973.
