Obituary for Edmond Drain

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Edmond Drain on Nov. 1, 2021, at the Crowsnest Pass Health Centre. He was 79 years of age.

Edmond was born on Dec. 7, 1941, to Mary and Charlie Drain. He spent his entire life in Crowsnest Pass, building and operating his business with his brothers. He worked all over Alberta and southern Saskatchewan and was very proud of all the various projects he completed. His work ethic was fantastic and inspirational.

When he wasn’t working, he restored old trucks (notably two old Dodge Power Wagons) and loved to travel (16 different countries at last count).

Edmond adored his four granddaughters and considered them his greatest pride and joy. He was an incredible man with many virtues whom we shall fondly remember and dearly miss.

He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Joanne Drain; his children, Jeff (Cathy) and Nicole Higginbotham; his grandchildren, Cailin, Mackenzie, Lauren and Claudia; his brothers, Jim and Clair (Claire); his brother-in-law Jim Haas; his sister-in-law Karen Guenther; and his nephews and nieces, Tony and Tasha, Shelley and Sheryl.

He was predeceased by his parents, Mary and Charlie Drain; his in-laws, Helen and John Haas; and brother-in-law Norm Guenther.
With respect for Ed’s wishes, no services in his memory will be held.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Museum, PO Box 306, Coleman, AB, T0K 0M0. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
