Edwin Henry "Ed" Eyers, was born and raised in Gainesborough, SK. Ed left home as a young man working across the Prairies doing any odd job offered to help support his family. He enlisted in the Air Force during the war and served his country proudly. Ed met Margaret while on leave in Winnipeg. They married and raised their family in the Fort Rouge area for the past 54 years. Employed as a mechanic, he could recognize the make, model, and year of most cars. Ed could "fix" anything and give it a second life. After retiring, he spent his time building everything from birdhouses to doll cradles for his grandchildren. Twenty-five years ago, he and Margaret were founding members of the Golden Rule Seniors Club, where his tireless efforts were rewarded by the success of the club. Ed was a kind and gentle man who quietly devoted his life to his family.
