It is with heavy hearts that the family of Edward Ernest Sapinsky announces his passing on March 20, 2021, at the age of 75. He passed quickly, with his wife Janice at his side, at the Grey Nuns Hospital after a valiant battle with several ongoing health problems.
Ed will be lovingly remembered and missed by his partner of 44 years, wife Janice Sapinsky; son Jonathan Hanlen; brother John Sapinsky (Sally); mother-in-law Diane Nickel; father-in-law Don Hanlen; sister’s in-law Jollean Bridgewater(Ray); Simone Hanlen; Veronica Hanlen; brother-in-law Dean Hanlen (Holly); along with many nieces; nephews and great nieces and nephews.
Edward was predeceased by his father John Sapinsky, mother Mary Sapinsky and Brother Ewalt Sapinsky.
Ed was born in Swift Current Saskatchewan and moved to Kelowna BC when he was three years old. Ed and Janice met in Kelowna BC in 1977. They moved to Edmonton, AB in 1980. Ed worked in the Bindery business until he retired in 2020 due to health issues. They lived in several locations in Edmonton, before settling into their current home in 1989, where they have lived for the past 31 years.
The family will celebrate Ed’s life at a later date, when current covid-restrictions allow us to have a larger gathering.
