Hodson, Edgar Harold

At the age of seventy-seven, after a brief battle with cancer, Ed passed away peacefully in the comfort of his own home. Ed is predeceased by his loving wife Shirley who he was married to for over fifty years. He is survived by his daughters; Sandra (Ken) Sasaki, Karen Hodson, Brenda (Fraser) Grant, grandchildren; Natasha (Ryan) Thorne, Danielle (Kevin) Joiner, Chelsea (Sam) Miller, Megan Grant, Jessica Grant, and many great grandchildren. He was born in Trochu, AB. and was raised in Delburne, AB. Ed and Shirley lived and raised their family in Prince George for many years. He had many jobs over the years, including road construction, crane operator, and was millwright welder at Lakeland Sawmill for twenty-five years prior to retiring to Summerland, BC in 1999. Ed had a very fulfilling retirement which included golfing, snow-birding south for the winter, RVing to various festivals and events across Canada, and travelling abroad to Panama, China, and the U.S. including Alaska and Hawaii. Ed will always be remembered as an honest, hardworking, family man who always had an interesting expression that would make you shake your head and smile. The family would like to thank Dr. Van Der Vyver, Dr. Venkataraman, Dr. Stevens, the staff of the rehab unit in the Penticton Hospital, and the many people who provided support. A Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, September 26, 2015 at St. Stephen’s Anglican Church in Summerland. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society on behalf of Edgar Hodson for cancer research.
