Barnes, Edgar MacLeod June 14, 1926 to July 5, 2021. Born in Chilliwack, BC and passed away peacefully of natural causes in Victoria, BC at the age of 95. Edgar was predeceased by his parents, Edgar and Charlotte (MacLeod) Barnes, and younger brothers Malcolm Barnes and Percy Barnes. He was married to Kathleen (Hunter) Barnes for almost 66 years when she passed away on February 27, 2018. His son, Terrance Barnes, predeceased him on December 9, 2020.

He is mourned and lovingly remembered by his daughter, Charlotte (Barnes) Wong, son-in-law Patrick Wong, grandchildren Amy (Niels) Vaino, Brendan (Jaclyn) Weidner, Christopher Weidner and great grandchildren Gabriel, Michael, Oliver, Laurel, Everleigh, Noelle and Lily. He was proud of having his own family and of being called Dad, Grandpa and Great Grandpa. He was able to live in his own home into his 90’s with the supportive care and companionship of his brother-in-law Terry Hunter.  

Edgar loved being outdoors, camping, fishing and taking road trips. He had precious memories of family vacations, frequent retirement trips with Kathleen, and family gatherings at his home. He was grateful for the kindness of others and often said “Thank you very, very much.”  

Following cremation, a future private family service will be held at Little Mountain Cemetery in Chilliwack BC where several of his family members are buried.
