In 2010, Edwin moved to an apartment in McCreary where he felt very much at home in its country setting but with its friendly town conveniences.
In June 2020 Edwin moved into the Centennial Apartments in Gladstone. He enjoyed the camaraderie of the community and was able to visit with friends. He was admitted to the Portage Hospital mid-November. He was faced with challenging medical issues and his condition deteriorated quickly.
