It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Edgar (Ed) James Coomber on February 29th, 2024, in his 83rd year.  He was surrounded by family and the wonderful caring people who he loved at Margaret’s Place Hospice in Dundas.  Son of Jessie and Hardy Coomber of Hamilton. He will be greatly missed by all of his family including siblings Shirley Ryder, Harold & Josie Coomber and sister-in-law Anne Turenne. Predeceased by Hardy Coomber and Deloris Rhode. Ed married the love of his life Verna and were inseparable for 61 years. Ed had 4 boys, John & Donnie, Chop & Tammy, Jim & Leeann and was predeceased by Danny. He was a loving grandpa to Josh, Aaron, Caitlyn, Dylan and great-grandpa to Elise. He leaves behind nieces and nephews who will greatly miss him. Ed and Verna were foster parents for many years caring for babies & toddlers whom they loved dearly making a positive impact on all their lives. Ed had many hobbies and interests over the years including coaching girls’ baseball, boys’ hockey, lacrosse, camping, traveling and volunteer firefighting. He could fix most things and would always offer to help when needed. Ed was an amazing woodworker and made many beautiful things. He loved his 1959 Chevy Impala Convertible, but most of all he loved his time with family and friends. A Celebration of Life will be kept to the immediate family.
