Then he and his love moved to Bay Mills where they grew old together and celebrated 55 beloved years of marriage. He loved to play bingo, ride down the road in his "Buggy", collect pop cans, work outside in his shed, and always looked to find a good trade or bargain. You would see him with a backwards "NativePride" hat and a big smile after he took any opportunity to tease. He married Bernadette Lothrop (LeBlanc) the love of his life on June 18, 1966. Together, they had four children: Edward Jr. (Joyce), Albert (Angel), Nicole, and Selina. They have 12 grandchildren: Tara (Allan), Ashley (Darick), Alyssa (Timothy), Page, Matthew (Kourtney), Aaron, Daniel, Megan, Trevor (Maria), Mystique, Quinten and Alli; 19 great grandchildren: Trey, Chendra, Jayden, Michael, Calie, Kade, Owen, Alex, Diem, Emma, Brynn, Stella, Nora, Maryea, Landon, Lily, Carter, Gianni, and Timothy Ill. His surviving 15 brothers and sisters are: Darlene, Ada Mae (James), Patricia, Geraldine, Mildred (Clarence), Barbara (Kenneth), Steven, Mary (Ken), Susan, Donna (Earle), William and Judy (Roni). His in-laws: Albert (Joann), Eileen, Debra, Corrine, Anthony (Dawn), Ruby (Sam), Jacques (Gloria), and Evelyene (Joe). He also has many relatives on both sides of the river. He was preceded in death by his Parents, Brothers: Donald, Robert and Michael, Sister Sharon, and In-laws Albert & Amelia LeBlanc, Daniel, Pierre, Raymond Marcel, and Soloma.
