EDWARD MCLAUGHLIN
1926 ~ 2013
Edward McLaughlin of the city of Lethbridge, beloved husband of the late Dorothy (Findlay) McLaughlin, passed away on November 3, 2013 at the age of 87. He is survived by his five sons, 16 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
Ed was born in Fivemiletown, County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland and emigrated to Canada as a young child. He was raised in Brampton, Ontario and met his future wife Dorothy while making a delivering to the hospital in Toronto where she worked. They were married and moved to Galt, Ontario where their first three sons were born. In 1958 they moved to Lethbridge where their family expanded to five boys.
Ed was a popular and well-known figure in the city of Lethbridge. During his 40 year career in the grocery business, he opened the first large supermarket in Lethbridge – a Loblaws store- in the building that now houses the Royal Canadian Legion. Altogether, Ed ran three Loblaws stores, the Super-Valu in the College Mall and County Foods.
Ed was a veteran of W.W. II and a longtime member of the Lethbridge Legion, the Army Navy and Air Force Club, the Elks Club and was a charter member of the Knights of Columbus 5726.
He was a man of deep faith and a devoted parishioner of Assumption Church and, more recently, St. Basil’s Catholic Church.
Ed and Do loved camping and spent many happy summers in their trailer and motorhome at Sandpoint, Idaho, Norbury Lake and Lake Koocanusa, B.C. But their favourite home away from home was Waterton Lakes National Park. In his retirement, Ed would take long walks in Lethbridge stopping constantly to greet friends and acquaintances on his route. Ed loved a good cigar, a cold beer and barbequing steak for dinner. He would sing “Danny Boy” at the drop of a hat.
Ed leaves an amazing legacy through his sons and their families. He is survived by his son Peter (Linda Ann) of Dallas Texas, Doug (Karen) of High River, John (Sylvia) of High River, Bob (Ruth) of Shanty Bay, Ontario, and Dave (Sharlene) of Rocky Mountain House.
He is survived by 16 grandchildren: Dylan, Lauren, Tara, Diane, Tammy, Ryan, Kimberly, Andrea, Peter, Denise, Gregory, Hannah, Scotty, Taylor, Braydon and Jordyn.
Vigil Rites will be held at 7:00pm on Wednesday November 6, 2013 at ST. BASIL’S CATHOLIC CHURCH, 604- 13 Street North, Lethbridge.

September 2, 1936 to
November 1, 2013
George Charles Sparrow beloved husband of Irene passed away peacefully on Friday, November 1st, 2013 after a very brief yet courageous battle with cancer at the Chinook Regional Hospital at the age of 77 years. He was predeceased by his parents and his grandson Adam Park. Besides his loving wife of 52 years, he is survived by his four children, Chris (Sandy) Sparrow and their children Bradie of Rainier, AB and Tye (Willy de Jager) of Brooks, AB; Linda (Keith) Park and their granddaughter McKailyn Ives of Lethbridge, AB; Bev (Greg) Schultz and their children Barrett and Jesse of Red Deer, AB and David (Suzanne) Sparrow and their children Harrison and Emmett of Calgary, AB. He is also survived by two sisters, Joyce (Henry) Friesen of Saskatoon, SK and Sharon (Wolfe) Rauch of Powell River, BC as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
George was very active throughout his life and volunteered numerous hours with Lethbridge Minor Hockey as a Board member, coach and referee and Lethbridge Minor Softball as a coach. In later years George was an active member of the Senior Centre and volunteered weekly at the Breakfast program at Wilson Middle School. He loved camping, fishing, skiing, golfing and spent many hours in his wood working shop making various items for friends, family and charities. He was a long time season ticket holder and supporter of the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
George’s greatest joys in life was the time spent with his grandchildren supporting them and travelling around the country to cheer them on in all their activities. He had a great love for animals and spent many hours looking after family and friends’ pets as well as his own.
He will always be fondly remembered as a very generous, highly respected and proud family man, dad, grandfather, coach, volunteer and mentor.
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to all their wonderful friends and family who visited, called and prayed as it certainly made these past few weeks more comforting as well as the wonderful care provided by the staff of Unit 4B at CRH.
As per George’s wishes, there will not be a funeral service. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lethbridge SPCA, if so desired.
