Dear Lynda, Tim, and Alex,
We are so sorry to hear of Ed's passing. We smiled to see the pictures of him on stilts on Canada Day, such a great way to remember him. Our son, Colin, remembers him as a good man who went into the freezing water of Gull Lake to save another man's life. May you find comfort in your many fond memories during this difficult time.
With our heartfelt sympathy,
Ron and Brenda Callaghan

I am deeply saddened by the passing of Ed Litwin.

Long before Ed's life and mine were to be touched by cancer I learned a number of things from Ed.

I learned that when designing a structure just because you were going from point A to point B did not mean that you ever needed to do so in a single straight line; that was just boring, the easy way, far too simple. Ed didn't just imagine building such complex structures, he drew them, then he perfected them and then he built them. I was often in awe of his sketches, but I am a guy that can't visualize how a space can be totally changed into a different kind of space until it has been demolished by a sledge hammer.

I learned a lot about time management; Ed always had a list of things to do, places to go and people to see and it was all in order for the day, for the week, for the month and for the year.

I learned that real hard working men drove only Ford F150's 4X4's.

I learned that it was possible to be a good father, a loving husband, a caring son, uncle and brother as well as a friend to a wide variety of characters from the local community, and from the communities that you moved away from as well as some people from all across the globe.

I learned all of these things and more before the cancer diagnosis.

In the time since I have never known anyone that accepted the hand he had been dealt and fought the hard fight that Ed did while enduring long travel, various indignities and treatments while still continuing to take on monumental projects in or around the family home.

Few will measure up to your accomplishments and your legacy.

May your eternal rest be peaceful...Richard Bradley
