It is with sadness that I announce the passing of Ed Klassen on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at the age of 83. He was a long-time member of the Manitoba Runners’ Association and won many age group awards in the Timex Series in both the 70-74 and 75-79 age groups. He was a former World Masters Record Holder and enjoyed running to the very end. He will be buried with his running shoes and games medals. Funeral service will be celebrated at McIvor Avenue Mennonite Brethren Church, 200 McIvor Avenue, Winnipeg, on Friday, October 26, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. with interment in Glen Eden Memorial Gardens. Those who so desire may make memorial donations in memory of Ed to CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
