Ed Canada, age 74, of Parker, Kan., went home to be with the Lord Jan. 9, 2019, at Integris Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Okla. Ed was born July 6, 1944, near Callao, Mo., to Harriett (Buchanan) and Clive Canada and was the youngest of their three children.
After graduating from Callao High School in 1962, he headed to Kansas City, Mo., to seek employment.
He started out at McCall’s Service Station. He then moved on to the Kansas City Terminal Railway Service and the Gas Service Co. Ed was a member of the Missouri National Guard.
While still living in Kansas City, he married Sandra (Sandy) Giffin in 1967. After a few years of marriage, Sandy told him she wanted a bigger garden, so Ed bought her a farm outside of Parker, Kan., in 1972, where they still made their home. Shortly after moving to the Parker area, Ed obtained employment at KCP&L’s La Cygne Generating Station.
In 2006, Ed retired after 32 years with KCP&L. He continued to farm until 2018. His joys in life were farming (a lot), spending time with family and friends, Fourth of July cookouts and fireworks, and boating on Stockton Lake. Ed was a longtime member of the First Baptist Church of Parker where he found great joy in serving his Lord and Savior alongside his beloved church family.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Eli.
Survivors include his wife, Sandy Canada, of the home; his daughter, Lori Northern and her husband Kelly, of Parker; his son, Eric Canada, of Friendswood, Texas; and his three grandchildren, Payton, Quin and Hope Northern.
Funeral services were held Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2019, at the First Baptist Church, Parker. Burial was at Highland Cemetery, Parker.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial contributions be made to the First Baptist Church of Parker or the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, which may be left in care of Feuerborn Family Funeral Service, 219 S. Oak, Garnett, KS 66032.
