It is with very broken hearts that we announce the passing of our father Llewellyn Edmunds on September 24, 2023 surrounded by his family. He was born June 18, 1929 in Hamilton, Ontario. As a young child he moved with his family to Sturgeon Falls, Ontario and that became their home.
He met the love of his life Marie, while working in Matachewan, Ontario. On May 29, 1954 they were married.
In 1956, they made their home in Terrace Bay, Ontario with their son Danny. There they added 5 more children. One daughter passed away in infancy.
Dad started working for Ontario Hydro at the age of 18. He worked there for 37 years before retiring. He has been retired for 39 years…so thank you Hydro One customers.
Llew is survived by his children Karen, Danny (Cindy), David (Sheelin), MaryLou (Steve), and Ricky (Colleen). Grandchildren Sandy (Dan), David, Kristy, Michael (Doyeon), Traci (Doug), Dale (Fiona), Lindsay (Cory), Stephanie (Jeff), Dustin (Olivia), Christina (Gil), James, Heather (Jarred). Many great grandchildren and great great grandchildren. He loved his family. Also survived by his cat Nevaeh, whom he loved with all his heart. He would do anything for her.
He was predeceased by the love of his life Marie, his daughter Judy, his grandson Paul, his brothers Leslie, Bill, and Russ and his parents William and Ethel.
We would like to thank all the workers at Chartwell for their great care of dad. You all went above and beyond. Special thank you to Dad’s friend and caregiver Barb. You will never know how much our family appreciated you.
We will miss your singing and all your harmonica songs.
Hug mom for us. Together again.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine.
You make me happy when skies are grey.
You’ll never know dear how much we love you
Please don’t take my sunshine away.
In lieu of flowers, donations to any pet rescue of your choice would make him happy.
Cremation has taken place and there will be a celebration of life for dad in the near future.
