CLAYDON, Edward Frank

Ed was born June 29, 1942 in Romford, Essex, England and passed away January 3, 2012 at his home in Black Creek. He was the much beloved husband to Joy, father to Tony (Janice), Matt, Nick, and Rachel (Steve) and loving grandfather of seven.
Ed was a “Force of Life” and lived his life on his terms. Ed, Joy and their children immigrated to Canada in 1971 where he was the master of many trades and owned his own body shop, “Ed’s Place” on Coleman Rd. He was a very respected auto body repairman having clients come to him from as far away as Victoria to Port Hardy and everywhere in between. After he closed his business he became the maintenance manager “guru” at the Best Western Austrian Chalet in Campbell River for the last 10 years.
Ed will be missed forever, a private family service will be planned for a future date.
