Edward HARDER

HARDER; Edward; May 22, 1927 ~ Aug. 12, 2014. It is with sadness the family of Ed Harder share his sudden passing in Abbotsford, BC. Ed enjoyed a 48 year career in the automotive industry in Moose Jaw where he met and married Bernice Tanner in November 1955. They enjoyed 39 years living in that city, making many friends, being involved in church, other activities and where Ed began his involvement with the Gideons that carried on for 34 years. In 1960 God blessed their home with a son Melvin who has been a caring, helpful son with a heart of love and generosity. When Mel married Nancy Parkins in 1981 Ed loved and appreciated her as much as his own daughter. After retirement Ed and Bernice moved to Abbotsford in 1994 where Ed again made a host of friends. He loved woodworking and made beautiful items from wood, the latest being unique ball point pens of different designs. Living in Abbotsford he loved his weekly coffee break with friends. His sense of humor will be greatly missed. Ed was predeceased by his parents and two sisters. He is survived by his wife Bernice of 58 years, son Melvin (Nancy) of Barrie, ON, three grandsons; Patrick, Mitchell, Trevor, two brothers Elmer and Bill and a host of nieces and nephews. Memorial service was held at Central Heights Church.
