LONEY, Edward James
It is with heavy hearts that the Family mourns the peaceful passing of Edward James Loney. ‘Eddie’ passed away in Kelowna General Hospital on February 10th, 2017 at the age of 77 while recovering from a recent stroke. He is survived by his three sons Richard, Blaine and Reid, grandchildren Brittany, Kyle, Robin, Caitlyn, Jason and Sara and daughters-in-law Tracey, Teri and Kim, all of Kelowna, as well as sisters Doreen Foxwell and Marilyn Sparkes Emsley. Born in Victoria in 1939, Ed lived in many locations throughout BC. Living in Kelowna for the majority of his life he made sure that his kids had the opportunity of living in this beautiful valley as well. Graduating from Semiahmoo High School in 1957, he worked for Overwaitea Foods and transferred to many locations including Nanaimo, Lake Cowichan and Powell River where he met his future wife Diane Routley. They moved to Kelowna in 1963 and started their family in 1968. They moved to Port Moody in the early 70’s to help family deal with the loss of Diane’s brother Robin and then moved back to Kelowna in 1980. Dad eventually retired and spent his days enjoying the warmth of the Okanagan and spending time with his children and grandchildren. His life journey was a wild ride from start to finish! Dad will always be remembered as a loving, wiley, energetic man with a very colorful history and we look forward to remembering his life with his many family and friends. Memorial Services will be held March 11th, 2017 at 1pm at Springfield Funeral Home in Kelowna with the Reception being held immediately after the Services in the Reception Hall at Springfield Funeral Home.
