Ed was born on the family farm in Highland Park on October 18, 1936, and he passed away in Long Term Care, Fairview on March 26,2023 at the age of 86 years. Ed was the 3rd child born to his parents, Lucko and Fannie Stosky. Ed completed 8 years of schooling at a little country school which was located close to the family farm, in the Highland Park area.
After he finished his formal education, Ed helped out at the family farm, and then began many years of working out at various jobs which included working at sawmills in the Hines Creek area as well as the interior of BC. He was also employed with a seismic operation in northern Alberta during the winter and working at a gravel crushing plant in the Valleyview area. With the money he made working at these various jobs, Ed was able to purchase two quarters of land adjacent to his parents’ farm, which he successfully cleared and farmed in between working out for a wage. In 1977 Ed sold his land and moved into a newly built home in Fairview. During the 46 years that Ed lived in Fairview, he was employed at UFA Farm Supply and the Town of Fairview, In 1986 Ed decided it was time to retire, so he spent his days helping local friends that farmed in the Highland Park and Royce area during spring seeding and also with the harvest in the fall. (Once a farmer…always a farmer….) Ed enjoyed riding his 3 wheeler ATC, he spent many a pleasant summer afternoon touring country back roads. He always put in a big garden, producing a bountiful harvest of vegetables that he was happy to share with family and friends. Ed always enjoyed visiting with family…and during those visits, nieces and nephews always looked forward to the chocolate bars that Uncle Ed usually brought for them. Ed was predeceased by his parents, Lucko and Fanny Stosky, as well as 4 sisters…Mary, Pauline, Helen, and Della, 3 brothers in law, 2 nieces and 1 nephew. Ed is survived by 1 brother, Tom Stosky, and 2 sisters, Anne Schultz of Creston, BC and Phyllis Konoza of Edmonton, Ab, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
At Ed’s request, he will be cremated and there will be no funeral. Ed’s family would like to express their sincere thanks to Dr, Betelafia and the nursing staff at the Fairview Hospital and Long Term Care for the excellent care given to Ed during his lengthy illness.
