John Stephen Edge

August 22, 1953 - April 30, 2024


Steve passed away on Salt Spring Island on April 28th, 2024.

He loved the island very much, and was never happier than at his house, tinkering away on his boat or truck, with Creedence Clearwater Revival blasting away.

We swam together at his house for many years in “Edge Bay,” and August was always capped off with our annual swim to Idol Island.

Steve loved his winter treks to the lovely town of Cuastecomates, Mexico. Daily swims, dinners with his many friends, and watching the sunset nightly were the simple joys he truly appreciated.

He was beloved by all in the recovery community both in B.C. and Mexico and had just celebrated 14 years clean and sober. He was so grateful for the life afforded him as a sober man.

He is survived by his brother Rob Edge, (and extended family), his former wife, Gwen Edwards, his daughter Sarah Jane Lynelle Rinas, and grandson Nathaniel, and his many many friends, including the Cuastecomates community, Hall and Elaine Theunisz, Peter Oosterweghel, Gord Mayrhofer, Paul Large, Dave French, Michel Jutras, Jennifer Davidson and Maureen Phelan.

He will be missed by many, and loved by all, for years to come.
