EDWARD “ED” PERCY
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Edward “Ed” Percy of Kamloops, BC, on February 16, 2022, at 81 years of age. Ed was predeceased by his loving wife Patricia Percy.
Ed moved to BC in the mid ‘60’s from Ontario with his best friend to try and make a better life. He started a janitorial service which he did very well for several years. In 1973 he and his wife Patricia, and stepfamily, moved to Kamloops. There, he drove highway bus for Greyhound for a couple of years until he managed to get on with BC Transit. He worked there for over 40 years, even joining them again after retirement. Ed was a hardworking, motivated man that was never afraid to tackle a business idea. After moving to Kamloops, he was always intrigued by the transportation business. He started several companies over his lifetime, and worked them mostly successfully, all while still holding on to his full-time employment. May people who rode the transit will remember him, as he was always a friendly man, but still professional. In his private life, Ed was literally the guy that would give the shirt off his back to help someone. Be it someone with a flat tire, broken down on the side of the road, or someone needing money for food, he would always give what he could. He will be sadly missed.
A private family service for Ed will take place at a later date. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at Overlander Extended Care, and the Hospital Staff for their care during COVID.
