Read, Edmund (Ed, Eddie)

Dearly loved husband of the late Francie, and dear brother of Frank and the late Winnie, Blanche, Gwen and Alf.  Greatly loved and respected by his sons Grant, Stephen, and Geoff, and by their partners Lynley, Debbie and Normand.  Treasured Grandad Read to Drew and Lani, Matt and Amber, Liz and Alex, and Rosie and Matthew, and Great-Grandad to Aniva, Caleb, and Natea.

Ed passed on peacefully to his heavenly Home after 95 good years, on the 7th of January.  Many thanks to the staff of Cashmere View for taking such good care of him in his final years.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Bible Society NZ would be appreciated.

Ed always liked to quote Rosetti, “sing no sad songs for me”; so, a Celebration of Ed’s life will be held in the John Rhind Chapel, entry from London and Whitmore Streets, Richmond, on Saturday 18th January at 1.00pm, with a 4pm interment at Greendale Cemetery, Greendale Road off Bealey Road.
