It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Eric Kadatz at the age of 93.
Eric was pre-deceased by his wife Lily (nee Arndt) in 2016, father Henry, mother Johanna (nee Brandenburg), sister Emma, brother Larry and daughter, Agnes (Angus). Mourning his loss is his sister Dorothy Brandrick (Jim), son Brian and grandchildren Glendon, Jackie and Brianna.
The family would like to thank all staff at CHOICE, Garneau Hall and the Zetter Care Centre for the caring they showed Eric in his final years. While occasionally a little gruff, the staff knew him for the lovable, warm soul he truly was and will, along with his family and friends, remember him for his ready smile and big, blue eyes. Eric was a quiet, hardworking, family man with farming roots, who loved playing his harmonica and guitar, bowling, and his daily coffee visits to SEESA. Eric will be missed by many.
A private family viewing has taken place with interment to follow when safe to do so.
Donations in Eric’s memory may be sent to Zetter Care Centre, 9649-71 Avenue, Edmonton, T6E 5J2 or a charity of your choice.
In Loving Memory of Eric
I met Eric back in the late 60’s when he was working at Ray’s Esso. I was just a “know nothing” teenager and Eric “Showed me the ropes” I cannot tell you how many jams he got me out of. I remember constantly asking him what I should do and he made sure whatever he asked me to do that I did it correctly!
Eric was caring, easy going, and had a terrific work ethic. He was a pleasure to work with. I even had the chance to work a number of late shifts for his father Henry.
Rest in peace Eric.
