When you spoke about Chippawa often the name Don Ede would come up. Don was a life-long resident of this hamlet of Niagara Falls and all of his life protected and promoted Chippawa. He was known as Mr. Chippawa. Sadly, Don passed on this week at the age of 78.Whenever I needed to know something about Chippawa he was the go to guy.
He will be missed.
Here are a few words from an unknown author that described Don to a tee.
Work for a cause…not applause
Live life to express…not to impress.
Don’t strive to make your presence noticed.
Just make your absence felt.
Rest in peace Don.
