Please share a memory of Ed to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

It is with heavy hearts we are sad to announce the passing of Edward Joseph Hnetka.  


Ed was born in Archerville, SK to George and Nora Hnetka.  He left home at an early age to discover the world ending up in Kamloops, BC.  A few years later he moved to Winnipeg. From Winnipeg he moved to Calgary where he met Fay Steward.  They then settled in Drumheller.  

Ed had a love of coin collecting and antiques. Ed’s car never failed to turn into a garage sale. He enjoyed the outdoors, including hunting and fishing with his family.  Ed had an outgoing personality and enjoyed meeting new people.


Ed is survived by his wife Fay; daughters Lana, Rena (Les) and Becky (David); grandchildren Kiara, Deklan, Klay, Kaleb, and Karter; sisters Zelma Chester and Betty Chubaty; sister in law Gwen Hnetka; as well as numerous other relatives and many dear friends.


Ed is predeceased by father George; mother Nora; brothers Bill and Tony; brother and sister in law Les & Louise Steward; brothers-in-law Jack Chester and Maurice Chubaty and Lana’s mother Stephanie Dubick.


At Ed’s Request there will be no formal Funeral Service.
