Edward Muster

October 12, 1929 - September 20, 2011


Muster: Edward – passed away peacefully at the Cowichan District Hospital on September 20, 2011. Born in Regina Saskatchewan on October 12, 1929. Predeceased by his parents; Erdmann and Lydia (nee Hilscher) Lovingly remembered by his family; spouse Christine; brothers Robert (Pat) of Coquitlam, Ronald (Bernice) of Lac la Hache and sister Joy Magee of Calgary; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Ed joined the Royal Canadian Navy in March 1951 and served over 28 years before retiring in October 1979. He spent most of his career at sea on ten different ships ranging from minesweepers to the cruiser, HMCS Ontario and a tour in the Korean War on HMCS Cayuga. His time ashore was spent on training to be a sonarman. Ed was a good “gofer”, someone every ship needed. If something was not available through normal channels, the “gofer” would be asked to “go for” this or that. Ed seldom came up empty handed. After retiring from the Navy in 1979, Ed worked at the Canadian Forces Ammunition Depot at Rockey Point until March 1990 and then retired to Duncan. He was also a member of the Royal Order of Buffalo’s, Happy Valley Lodge # 6 and affiliated with Sir William Burnip Lodge # 12. Ed was an avid fisherman and an active member in the Royal Canadian Navy Anglers Association and was presented with a life membership in April 1999. On 17 October 2002, Ed was awarded the Canadian Peacekeeping Service Medal (CPSM) by the Governor General of Canada. Ed was also an active member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 53
A Celebration of Ed’s life will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion, 25 Kenneth St., Duncan BC on October 13, 2011 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm . Flowers gratefully declined. If so desired memorial remembrances may be made in the form of a donation to the charity of your choice. Online condolences may be offered at www.hwwallacecbc.com

My dear Christine, I was saddened to learn of Ed’s passing. I always enjoyed chatting with him, and you, too, of course, at the lake.
