Edsel Dick, formerly of Blenheim passed away in Windsor on Sunday May 26, 2019.  He was 88 years old.  Edsel was the son of the late Emerson & Grace (Ronson) Dick.  He was a child who was gifted with a keen sense of foresight and determination in life.  He ventured out early becoming a mechanic and then moved on to be a successful entrepreneur in many businesses including R.E.D. Excavating, a business that he shared with his sons.  In his spare time he enjoyed travelling, spending time with friends, going to dances and an appreciation of horses.

Edsel was the father of Ralph & Gayle, Kevin & Lisa, Darrell & Kathy and Brian & Sherry, the late Brenda Poile (survived by Rob) and the late Diane Dick.  He enjoyed nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.  He was a brother of Charlotte VanNeck (late Gary), Phyllis & Bob Bayly, Homer Dick (late Shirley).  Predeceased by Ruth & Fred Lapp, Lillian & Bob Flynn, Reg & Elma Dick and Archie Dick.  He will be remembered fondly by his special friend Judy Bloemen.
