Edward William Rowand MacDonald

(July 27, 1953- March 8, 2023)

Born July 27, 1953, Ed passed away peacefully on March 8, 2023 at the age of 69.

Ed worked for the City of Winnipeg for many years, beginning as a transit bus driver and eventually retiring from the Water and Waste Department in 2007. He volunteered his time with the Transcona Nationals Football Club when his son, Scott played for the team. Once he retired, Ed enjoyed spending his time volunteering at the Assiniboine Park Zoo.

He loved the Winnipeg Jets and the Blue Bombers and watching games with his son, Scott at every opportunity.

Ed will be missed by so many, but will be especially missed by his children, Scott MacDonald and Heather Swartman (Jody), and grandchildren, Ryan, Kyle and Hanna, as well as his ex-wife, Cheryl. He will also be missed by his best friend, Bob Stelmach, whom he had been friends with since his teenage years.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Assiniboine Park Conservatory, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
