He immigrated to Canada in 1948 eventually settling with family in Winnipeg. Eddie worked as a butcher for over 30 years. As a young man Eddie loved dancing, big bands and jazz. When the music started to play Eddie could dance all night long. He was inquisitive and never without a book. Biographies and historical dramas were his favorite reads. A man of many talents, Eddie could fix anything and was incredibly resourceful with his projects. Papa was quick to roll up his sleeves and help family especially his children with any number of projects. He shared his many talents with us and taught us important life lessons. Eddie and Florence traveled widely after retirement, Europe, Australia, Israel, Hawaii and the US. He returned to his beloved homeland of Belgium numerous times fondly remembering his past. Pa was a quiet, humble man with a gentle soul who will be deeply missed by his family. Funeral Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, January 13 at Sts.
