Edward dreamed of the ministry. He attended Winkler (Man.) Bible Institute, where he met Helga. Edward studied at MB Bible College, Winnipeg; Fresno (Cal.) Pacific College; and Regent College, Vancouver. He served 43 years as pastor at Chilliwack (B.C.) Central MB; Grace MB, Penticton, B.C.; and Winnipeg’s Transcona Community, Morrow Gospel, Meadowood Manor Chapel and Oak Bank Baptist. Edward found great joy in preaching and sharing his faith. He enjoyed gardening and music. Edward and Helga blessed many seniors at Meadowood with their singing and visitation. Warm and caring, Edward took a genuine interest in other. His favourite verse was Proverbs 18:10. Edward’s faith sustained him.
