It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ed Scribilo at the age of 74.  He was a devoted husband, father, Papa, brother, uncle, cousin and a good friend to many.  

Ed leaves to mourn his loving wife of 54 years Sharon Scribilo, daughter Tracy (Shaun) Gustafson and son Robert, along with his greatest enjoyment - his grandchildren Brandon, Carter and Kaden.  His siblings Jim, Catherine (Ron) Hales, Darlene, Andy and  brother in law Alan (Debbie) Bishop and former sister in law Helen Scribilo.   Ed loved his nieces and nephews like his own children Lena (Rod) Alexander, David (Lana) Hales, Andrea (Inno) Laur, Trina Bishop, Kyle Bishop, Tiffany (Jay) Long and Phillip (Alana) Scribilo, James Scribilo as well as a large extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Ed was born in Kenora on September 30, 1948 to Andrew and Helen Scribilo. He attended Beaver Brae Secondary School and was a member of the Football team.  He had a love of baseball, basketball, hockey, curling, fishing and hunting.

On January 25, 1969 he married the love of his life Sharon Bishop and soon welcomed his daughter and then 3 years later his son.  During this time of starting a family he also was involved in his sports life.  He played hockey with an amazing group of guys that were also his good friends.  They carried this friendship throughout his life.  His involvement in hockey and football built a strong enjoyment of the games in his kids and grandchildren. He loved being involved in all aspects of the game, he was a coach, player, parent, spectator in the sports he loved.  Ed was never shy about expressing his passion for the game and his point of view on how you could improve your game.   Ed passed his passion for the sports to Rob, Brandon, Carter and Kaden plus many members of his extended family.  

Ed was an avid fisherman with a strong passion for hunting.  He had a regular crew that he hunted with on a yearly basis.  Then these last ten years the crew was a family affair.  He got to go on his last hunting trip this fall which will be a great memory for all those he was with.

After High School Ed started his career as an Electrician with different companies until he was hired at the mill in Kenora, which he worked at till his retirement.  After retirement, he still enjoyed keeping busy so he worked for Moncrief Construction for a few years before he started driving a bus for First Student until recently. 

The family would like to thank the EMT, OPP, Dr. S. Wiebe, Keewatin Medical Clinic Doctors, Emergency Staff at the Lake of the Woods Hospital and most of all Roger and Glenda who stayed to help the family on Friday night. 

A Celebration of Ed’s Life will be held at Minis Hall/Super 8 Kenora, Ontario from 1-4 pm on March 3, 2023. It will be a come and go atmosphere.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kenora Dragon Tamers or a charity of your choice.
