Edward Brodzki 1938 - 2021
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Edward Brodzki on January 14, 2021, at his farm, at the age of 82 years, a loving brother, uncle and friend.
He was predeceased by his parents, John and Anna. He is survived by his sister Jane Epp (Don) children Susanne and Greg, sister Rose Vinek (John) children Vanessa, Jonathan, Marina and Jeremy, brother Stan (Karen) children Annette, Coral and Cameron, plus extended family, great nieces and nephews.
He took his schooling at Dickson School in the hamlet of Struan until Grade 10 when the family moved to the present farm in the Wilson Lake area and Ed began his life long career in farming.
He loved the farming life - raising cattle, seeding, making summer fallow, baling hay and harvesting; always checking weather reports and hoping for rain at the right time.
He looked forward to the many visits Rose made to the farm to put in a garden, help Ed with some chores and bake apple pies, also making meals for the crew at branding time. It was during these visits they took time for impromptu truck trips down familiar roads, perhaps leading to Wilson Lake or Struan. Rose and John and daughters have cabins at Turtle Lake and Ed made many summer trips to visit and meet new family additions.
Ed loved the company of a dog and allowed his dog to ride in the front seat of the Silverado. However, his dog would sit too close as if he could help drive! This "togetherness" proved a problem when Ed had to go to town without him.
Ed chose unusual names like Merka, Marble, Sundown and Eisenhower for these wonderful companions.
The family wishes to express appreciation to the neighbours who were friends to Ed and helpful in times of need.
Ed, we will miss you dearly and will always remember you and the farm you lived for.
Gerein Funeral Service are in charge of final arrangements.
Due to COVID-19 there will be no funeral service.
