On April 19th, suddenly, but peacefully at home, surrounded by family and much love.

Cherished husband, for 70 years, to Helen, always together. Beloved father to Carol (Marvin), Susie (Lyle), Robbie (Sherry). Dearest and devoted Grandpa Eddie to Michael, Matthew, Ben (Aily), Molly (Coby), Becky, Sunny (Gabe). Loving great grandpa to Ari. Trusted doctor, friend, and much loved “Uncle Eddie” to all.

An extraordinary tinkerer, thinker, enjoyer of art and music. A true maverick and renaissance man who blazed his own trail and made a difference to so many. An explorer of waters near and far. We know you’re sailing away into the sunset now! Heartfelt thanks to his incredible caregivers.

If desired, memorial donations may be made to the Edward and Helen Sheffman Endowment Fund for Palliative Care at Baycrest Foundation (416-785-2875,
