August 4, 1944 – December 29, 2018
It is with heavy hearts we announce that Edgar Charles Hauger, “Ed,” age 74 years, of Edmonton, Alberta, passed away suddenly on Saturday, December 29, 2018 at the Edmonton General Hospital.
Ed will be forever remembered by his sons, Craig and Travis; daughter in law, Mandy; grandchildren, Cara, Kayla, Colten, Jalene, Rylee, Jessy and Easton; great grandsons, Bentley and Declan; step-mother, Sally Scobie; step-sisters, Gayle, Linda, and Karen; cousin and “brother he never had” Harold (Ginny) Burgess; good friend and cousin, Eleanor Olsen; as well as many more family members and friends.
Edgar was predeceased by his father, Lyman Hauger; mother, Irma Hoover; and step-father, John “Jack” Scobie.
Edgar was born in Dawson Creek, Bc. He suffered the tragic loss of his father, Lyman Hauger, at the age of two. In 1957, when Edgar was 13 years old, his mother, Irma Mary Hoover, married John “Jack” Scobie of Telfordville, Alberta. One year later, in December of 1958, Irma passed away, leaving Edgar to be raised by his stepfather, Jack Scobie, and later his stepmother, Sally.
Edgar made a living by being a long-distance truck driver. In his later years, Edgar suffered badly from Multiple Sclerosis. He spent much of his time at “The Drake” drinking Coke and listening to live bands. Edgar loved being a grandfather. He was especially a hit when he drove his scooter right onto the court at his granddaughter’s volleyball game. Edgar will be forever remembered for the twinkle in his pretty blue eyes and his impish, mischievous grin.
