Please share a memory of Edward to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Edward Raymond MacCallum – 73, Stellarton. With heavy hearts, love and treasured memories, the family of Edward Raymond MacCallum announce his passing on Thursday, April 27, 2023. Born in Stellarton, Pictou County he was a son of the late Edward and late Bertha (Fitzgerald) MacCallum. Dad worked hard for most of his life. He was a proud Press Foreman for over three decades at the Evening News, followed by Transcontinental, and The Advocate. He was passionate about sports. He played baseball as a young man and spent many summer evenings and weekends as an umpire. He loved curling whether he was on the ice or watching as a spectator. In his later years, Dad became an avid golfer. He enjoyed his early morning tee times and the beauty of a carefully manicured golf course. A proud grandfather, he could be found at any baseball field or hockey rink cheering on his grandchildren as their biggest fan. Dad was a brave volunteer fire fighter with the Stellarton Fire Department for many years and today he remains an honorary member. His pride in community was evident in the way he would tell stories about living in the Red Row, the Brown Row, and the Asphalt. Edward will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 49 years, Barbara (nee MacKean). He is survived by his son Mark (Carrie); daughter Erin (Steve); grandchildren Reade, Cameron, Max, Jack, Savanna, and Zoe; great-grandchildren Mason and Jaxon; brother Buzz (Margaret); sister Grace (Duncan) MacKay; nephews Gerald and Jason; nieces Lisa, Sarah, and Lauren.
