It is with heavy hearts that the family announces the sudden passing of Edmund Colton. Born and raised in New Brunswick, Ed moved to Montreal as a young adult and began a career in the construction industry. He was a dedicated and highly respected business owner of Kingston Byers.
Ed was a great man. Deeply routed in his Catholic faith, he was a committed member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help (OLPH) parish. He had strong family values and a gentle, loving spirit.
Ed was the cherished husband of the late Muriel McFall and father to Deborah (Erik Hylland), Laurie (Joseph Derocher), Judy (Silvestro Gasparro), Pamela (Deryck Williams), Karianne (Patrick Campbell) and predeceased by daughter Sharon (Larry Riley). Ed was a proud and devoted grandfather to Adam, Emily, Matthew, Charlie, Alexander, Sarah, Olivia, Michael, Haven, Siobhan and Timothy and step-grandchildren Kevin, Kelsey and Dustin. He will be greatly missed by his special friend, Vera Paul.
