We Remember


Edward passed peacefully on October 18th, 2016 after a long battle with heart failure, two months shy of his 86th birthday.  Left to mourn his passing is wife Corrie and his blended family of 5 children and 10 grandchildren: Sons Greg Laurence, Gary Laurence (Dawna); daughters Faith Hedley (Willie), Sherry Stafford (Chris), and Michelle Kinzel (Doug); grandchildren Jody, Mira, Parker, Erin, Nichole, Jonathan, Liam, Matthew, Sydney, and Megan; and his joined-at-the-hip dog, Bunky.  During his collegiate years Ed was employed as a professional musician.  Following graduation he joined CJGX Radio in Yorkton.  He then worked at CKCK Regina, CFRN and CJCA Edmonton.  He returned to Yorkton in 1959 eventually entering into partnership to purchase CJGX Radio and eventually CFMQ and CKRM Radio in Regina.  He participated and held memberships in AA Assn, Assn of Broadcasters, Kinsmen Club, Rotary Club, Chamber of Commerce, and his most prized personal achievement – obtaining his pilot’s licence.  From his place behind the microphone in the studios of CJGX, Ed had a rare ability to tell a story and turn a phrase in the most creative and often humorous way. Alone in a studio, through the magic of airwaves, Ed (and his Clarence the Crow) made thousands of Yorkton area residents smile as they started their day. After suffering heart problems in 1984, Ed retired from radio. In 1992 he moved to Peachland, and then to Kelowna to enjoy fishing, boating, computer geeking, and being Opa to his beloved children and grandchildren.  After retirement Ed and Corrie lived a full life and enjoyed Maui, Arizona, and cruising the world.  By request there will be a celebration of Edward’s life with family and friends at a later date on OK Lake, which he loved so much.  If desired, donations in his memory made be made to your local SPCA.

    We are so sorry to learn of Ed’s passing. We are reminded of the fun times we shared at York Lake Corrie, our dog Gus on muskrat patrol, our kids hanging out with “Ed-ley” and marvelling at “Granny’s ” wonderful art and just sitting together on our docks enjoying the beautiful sunsets. Great memories. Take care Corrie.

  • Phil and Judy DeVos says:

    Having worked with Ed in the very early 70s at GX I was saddened to hear he has passed. He always spoke of selling popcorn on a beach in Hawaii…I’m not sure if he ever did that but he accomplished a great deal in his life. I have thought of him often. My condolences to his family especially Gary and Faith . RIP Ed….

  • Ed Worobeck says:

    I knew Steady Eddy in Edmonton, then on CJGX Radio Yorkton when I lived in Regina on the 1960s. He was always fun. In the mid 1960s, I won a big coffee perk in a lemiric contest on CJGX., between him and another announcer “I like Steady Eddy because _______.” Condolences to Eds’ family…i will always remember Ed fondly, he was a great guy!
