September 14, 1923 - March 10, 2016
Reverend Edgar took his final flight home to heaven on the morning of March 10, 2016. He left High River at 7:28 a.m. and arrived at the Celestial Airport in “the twinkling of an eye”. Previous stopovers were made at Dilke and Melfort, Saskatchewan where he farmed until he joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in World War II. Upon returning he attended the University of Saskatchewan (Saskatoon Department of Agriculture) and then the Canadian Nazarene College in Red Deer, AB. As a Pastor he served parishes in Wapella, Saskatchewan, Rocky Mountain House, High Prarie, Lacombe, High River, AB. Pastor Edgar was very proud of his Padre Ministry with the Royal Canadian Legion in High River which he served for 15 years ending in 2012. Those waving farewell are his loving wife Evelyn; daughters Barbara (Anthony) Manswell and Cynthia (Bruce) Wergeland; sons Anthony (Arlas) Craig and Darcy Craig; grandchildren Kavanah, Jayedon, Jerrick, Kenrick, Ali, Grace, Zach, Ben, Keiana, Kaia and Keelyn. A Funeral Service celebrating his flight was held on Tuesday, March 22nd at the First Church of the Nazarene, Calgary (65 Richard Way SW).
