Edward Ledwos

July 24, 1931 – February 8, 2022

With great sadness, the Family of Edward Ledwos must inform of the passing of Edward Ledwos at Tuxedo Villa Personal Care home, at the age of 90 years.

“Ed” is survived by his wife Margaret of 21 years. Their devotion to each other and their life together was in the forefront of their lives & their greatest gift to each other. Also celebrating his father’s life is his youngest son Gordon (Joan Spak) in Thompson Manitoba and their family. Also celebrating his life are his sisters Lillian (Patrick) and Valdean McDonald. He is remembered by his grandchildren Jeremy (Tania) & Stephanie, Stephen & twins Laura & Jennifer, with Sidney and Jessica and many nieces and nephews. Never to forget him also, is his great-nephew Connor, whom Ed insisted that Connor call him “Grandpa”.

“Eddie” was predeceased by his father Frank in 1969, his mother Mary in 1988, siblings, Marie (1980), Michael (1984) Joe (1999) and Olga (2012). Eddie’s first wife Babe (Sophia) died in 1999, their oldest son ‘Little’ Eddie in 2018, daughter Sheila Ann in 2019, nephew Robert Kahler in 2017, Brothers-in-law Arthur Horton in 1969, Stanley Malcheski in 1980 and Warner Buchanan in 1997.

Ed was an upstanding & well-respected member of the Baha’i Assembly of Winnipeg for many decades, and his faith was seen in every aspect in how he lived his life: in peace, kindness, faith & honesty. His kind and gentle demeanor was as ever-present as was his sense of humor and appreciation of the little things in life. He modestly radiated acceptance and non-judgement of others and his presence will be missed by the greater Winnipeg Baha’i community. Ed’s presence will also be missed at Winnipeg Harvest, where in his twilight years both he and Margaret volunteered weekly.

Eddie was born in the North End of Winnipeg and was a well-respected Masseuse for over 40 years. He was affectionately known by many as “the man with the magic hands” for his abilities. He spoke fondly of his times working for North Star Inn and the YMCA in younger days, and later with the YMHA in downtown Winnipeg through to retirement with the Rady Centre in the mid 90s.

Throughout his life, Edward was passionate about health, faith, and photography, consistently learning and passing on his knowledge. He believed wholeheartedly in exercise and living a healthy lifestyle. He tried his hand in weightlifting competitions coming in as a runner-up for Mr. Manitoba in the mid 1960s.
