83, returned to his heavenly Father on February 1, 2019.
Edward was born in Slovenia and immigrated to Canada in 1956. Along with marrying his sweetheart, Jennie, in 1959, the most important event of his life was becoming a Christian in 1978.
Edward’s firm belief in God directed his prayer walking from his home in Port Moody, BC. Walking the alleys, main, and side roads, he proclaimed God’s promises from Vancouver to Coquitlam. Now he is at rest dwelling in the House of the Lord forever.
Edward was blessed with a wonderful family and is survived by his devoted wife of 60 years, Jennie; his daughters Anita (Jim), and Sharon (John), and son Jeffery. He will be deeply missed by his wife, children, grandchildren; Carolyn (Daniel), Lisa (Hugo), Tammy (Stephan), Jennifer, Jessica, Steven (Sindy), and Crystal; and great-grandchildren, Rebekah (Misha), Aurora, James, Paloma, Lina, Elizabeth, Micah, Adam, Bentley and Sarah.
A funeral service for Edward Verhovnik will be held on February 8, 2019 at 11:00 am at 6256 Mount Lehman Rd, Abbotsford with burial to follow at the Mount Lehman Cemetery.
