Edward Howell “Ted”
November 9, 1951 – August 19, 2017
Ted (Stretch) passed away peacefully at Penticton Regional Hospital, on Saturday, August 19, 2017 in his 66th year, loving husband for 41 years to Robyn and beloved father of son Nathan (Christine) of Kelowna and daughter Caitlin (Patrick) of Montreal.
He was an innovative craftsman, well known for his creative skills and artistry performed as a blacksmith in a extensive range of ironwork projects in Western North America.
Ted was a man with a tremendous love of unspoiled nature. He lived life to the full, always available to help a friend and everybody was a friend.
Quick with a smile and to give a hug, his quirky sense of humour and the twinkle in his eye swiftly drew people he met into that circle of friendship.
Stretch led a life of spiritual awareness filled with adventure and achievements, deeply enriched by the shared love in his large family and the friends he made everywhere he went.
He will be sorely missed by all of us that were fortunate enough to know him.
