Diggle, Edward - With deep and profound sadness that we announce the passing of Edward William Diggle III, in the early hours of Monday, May 10 2021 surrounded by his loving family. Edward leaves behind a son Martin Diggle of Calgary, AB. He also leaves behind his fiance Charlena Ellis and stepdaughters Kaitlynn and Alise. He is survived by his mother Helen Oliphant nee (Glenn) of Hartland, NB and predeceased by his father Scott Diggle and stepfather Barry Oliphant. He also leaves behind his sister Mary Diggle and Mcpl Jason Morphy along with his niece Kendell Morphy and nephews Douglas Diggle and Jason Morphy from Angus, ON.
He was a caring soul who always had a story to tell or was quick with a joke. He was known as the life of the party, lighting up any room he entered.
Edward was proud to have served his country by joining the Canadian Forces in Edmonton, AB in 1995 and eventually went on to be a part of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia Light Infantry retiring in 2008 as a Master Corporal. He was decorated with a Peacekeeper medal and a medal for his service in Bosnia.
Edward was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion calling branch 499 in Angus, ON his home branch.
In accordance with his wishes, he was to be cremated with a celebration of life to follow at the Royal Canadian Legion in Angus, ON once Covid-19 restrictions are lifted.
As expression of sympathy, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Wounded Warriors would be appreciated by Edward's family.
Lo, There do I see my father
Lo, there do I see my mother and
My brother's and my Sisters
Lo, There do I see the line of my people back to the beginning
Lo, They do call me
They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla
Where thine enemies have been vanquished
Where the brave shall live forever
Nor shall we mourn but rejoice for those that have died the glorious death.
Dated between 4 B. C. and 3 A. D. Norse Prayer
Cremation entrusted to Marshall W. Driver Cremation & Burial Service
