He was predeceased by his mother Sara and father John (Katharina) Willms. Ed was born in Coaldale, AB on February 11, 1939. Ed was known as Fast Eddie and the Energizer Bunny by his friends at an early age and was still called that in the end. He founded Scandia Fields Honey and was one of the largest and most successful bee keepers in Canada. Ed was very successful throughout his entire life. He travelled to many places, but his two favorite places were Mazatlán, Mexico and Kaslo, British Columbia where he spent his winters and summers. He loved to golf, fish, music and dancing. Ed lived life to its fullest. He was larger than life and you knew when Ed walked into a room as the whole room lit up. He will be terribly missed by people from all over the world.
