Edward "Possum" MacLachlan passed the way that he lived, in his home, peacefully and lovingly surrounded by his six children on October 31, 2021. The pillars of his persona - kindness, generosity, humor and humility will continue on through the lives of those he loved most - his children, his siblings and his grandkids. Ed embodied hard work, integrity and faithfulness, together setting the stone of his life's work as a union bricklayer and the many relationships he crafted as well. A private service will be held at Shephard Settlement Cemetery, close to his family's homestead - the place that laid the foundation for the neighbor, father, brother, and friend we all loved. The family is planning a Celebration of Ed's Life in the spring. In lieu of flowers, do as Ed would do - grow your own.
