ARCURI, Edward Patrick

Passed away early in the morning of Saturday July 17, 2021 after a 5 year struggle with Alzheimer’s at the age of 85. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Peggy, daughter Stacy (Bob), son Mark (Shona), granddaughters Sarah and Samantha, sisters Barb, Cece (Murray) and many nieces, nephews and their children.

He was born in Timmins Ontario and always claimed he wasn’t a great student. So it was surprising that he chose to become a teacher. He attended Teacher’s College in North Bay where he met and married Peggy.

Ed had a number of careers – Teacher, Principal, Pharmaceutical Salesman and Realtor but eventually he came back to teaching. He retired as a senior public school Counsellor. 

Learning was very important to him. He earned a Bachelor of Art from Wilfred Laurier University and a Masters of Education from Niagara University in Lewiston, New York.

He also enjoyed being physically active; walking his dog for miles, cross country skiing (which he taught) and golfing. He was a very active member of North Halton Golf club especially after he retired.

Classical music was something that he enjoyed after learning to play the clarinet in high school. During the 70’s to mid 80’s he was very involved with amateur theatre in Georgetown.

In 2015, he and Peggy moved to Guelph to live across the street from Mark and his family.

We would like to express our deep appreciation and thanks to the staff at Fergus Caressant Long Term Care facility for making the last 2 years of Ed’s life meaningful for him.

A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL 519-822-0051 / www.wallcustance.com.

Donations in Ed’s name can be made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.

 

A tree will be planted in memory of Edward P. J. Arcuri in the Wall-Custance Memorial Forest.
