SERVICE EXCELLENCE when you need it most.
With broken hearts we announce the passing of a magnificent husband, beautiful father, loyal brother, friend, uncle, godfather & son on May 08, 2017 at 57 years of age after a courageous battle with cancer.
Ed leaves behind the love of his life of 33 years, Shellie, the pride of his life and what he worked hard for every day; son Robert & Melanie, daughter Tanya & Jason, son Kenneth & Jessica, Daughter Natalie & Rocco, The joy and light of his life grandchildren Lyla and Lucy, his two perfect, sweet, beautiful grand babies who always put a smile on his face. He was their Papa. Cherished brother of Ted & Cindy, Mark & Peggy and Steve along with his McKenzie family and many loving nieces and nephews. Predeceased by loving parents Ted (1979) and Emily (2016).
Ed was so many things and wore so many hats. On top of being a family man and great friend, he was a talented photographer, hunter, fly-tyer, world traveler, fitness enthusiast and dedicated Lions fan. By far his most passionate hobby was fishing and he found tremendous joy and peace with a fly rod in his hand while standing in a pristine river.
He was an excellent athlete, playing Windsor Minor Hockey and Lancer Football. He later moved on to coaching where he was a wonderful mentor to many kids, including his own and was named Windsor Minor Hockey Coach of the Year.
Ed was a very dedicated Professional Engineer and business owner who passionately worked alongside his brothers Mark & Ted at Eagle Press, where they proudly and successfully ran the family business and carried on their father's legacy.
Ed was a man who kept no ego, who loved his life, his wife and children, grandchildren, friends, employees, neighbors, barber, fitness coach, fishing guides and many others, all with an open heart and without condition.
Ed's children, grandchildren and wife were the light of his life and the reason he got up everyday, and he theirs.
Ed's wonderful spirit lives on in all of the people he has touched throughout his life. He is surely in heaven resting peacefully where he earned his place by living a faithful Catholic life, regularly attending OLMC parish and receiving great comfort from the counsel of Fr. Mike Parent especially during his last days.
The Polewski family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the entire medical team who cared for Ed and showed amazing compassion and kindness during our darkest days, specifically Dr. Mizra, Dr.Elalem, Dr. Aoun, Dr. Yap, Dr. Elfiki and many nurses at WRH Ouellette Campus 6 West and WRH Metropolitan Campus 4 West who were nothing short of angels on earth.
Parish Prayer Thursday 4:30 pm
