To Regina, Jon, Shannon, and Meghan;

Sincere condolences – many fond memories of growing up on Long Pond Road and happy times spend with all of you and your Dad.

Aidan and I and our mom Patricia send our prayers and best wishes

Mrs. Drover and Family:
Please accept our deepest condolences on Ed’s passing. Mabel and I were saddened to hear the news. Ed was always a pleasant neighbor to us as you all were. Every morning or evening when our paths passed as neighbors on Long Pond Road Ed would always welcome us with a smile and a hello. Though we were neighbors for about one year he was a great one and I’ m sure he is resting now in heaven.

God Bless Ed your smiling face will be missed.

Brian and Mabel O’Grady Family

Regina, Jonathan and family,

I am sorry to learn of Ed’s passing and I offer my sincere condolences. His energy on the board of the CNIB, which I have great memory, and for all the charitable boards he served on was extremely admired. I remember Ed as a man of abundant energy who loved family and his province.

I just wanted to leave my condolences for Mr. Drover’s friends and family. I’m his co-worker Karen Murphy’s daughter and heard much about him growing up including his battle with cancer. I look at him as one brave warrior and someone to be very respected. RIP Mr. Drover you fought the good fight.

My thoughts are with you. Please accept my condolences. Hoping you find peace as you reflect fondly on memories of Eddie.

Regina, It was indeed sad news when Jason called me in Floridia to inform me of Ed’s passing. Ed Drover was a friend to me since the first day I met him in 1981. My life and that of my children is better because for many years Ed was a very important part of it. I have untold fond memories of Ed that I will cherish forever. Ed was indeed unique,motivating,kind and he made a difference to whomever he met. Today I am sad. But I will take time toast my friend Edwin Drover. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I know Ed loved you all very much. Kindest Regards. Randy

Meghan,

So sorry to hear about your dad. He was a force to be reckoned with! I remember him well when my son, Matthew, was playing soccer with Jonathan and Ed was refereeing. As usual with him, he put his whole self into it-full uniform and all.

Please pass on Jeannie’s and my condolences to Jonathan and Alison, who we know well; as well as to Regina and Shannon.

Thinking of you at this time.

Much love to you.

Our conversations often revolved around politics but ultimately he always talked about family and was so proud of the accomplishments of each and every one of his immediate and extended families.

To the Drover Family,
Ed was a good family friend, I remember fondly walking down to my father’s greenhouse while he was ill and by his side was his good friend Ed who spent the entire summer with him growing flowers and encouraging dad to fight on. Ed was an dedicated person who helped many and gave as much as he could to life and making it better for others. A true inspiration to all.

Time is precarious, but love is endless. Eddie was filled to the brim, and equally filled everyone around him. He gave so much of himself to so many. I will always remember his generous hugs and infectious smile with laughter that came from his gut. But mostly Megger, I will remember how genuinely happy and caring he was for our friendship, that means so much to me.

We truly hope you can find peace in all your wonderful memories and some comfort in knowing that so many are sharing in your loss.

All our love,
Kate and Chris

Regina and Family,
Ed was a dedicated family man and a friend to many. He had many interests that he pursued with a passion but his true passion was his Family. Many times I would ask Ed about his family and how they were doing. He spoke of you with pride and was quick to ask how things were with my family. We spent many nights at the old Memorial Stadium talking about hockey and all things politics. Those conversations moved to Mile One and Ed loved to watch the hockey and see the progression of the young players. He was proud of our team, our City and our Province. A true gentleman who did everything he undertook with passion and enthusiasm. I will miss him but will fondly remember our times together. God Bless and rest in peace Ed.

Our sincerest condolences to you and your family Aiden. I worked alongside Edwin many years ago with Newfoundland Telephone and I remember so well his enthusiastic personality and his very quick wit. As a young girl just out of school he made me feel so comfortable and gave me many many laughs. Our lives took different paths but many times over the years his name would often come up and I was more then aware of his many personal and business accomplishments. Ruth & Dennis Brown

Jon, so very sorry to hear about your Dad. Thinking of you and your family at this difficult time.

Aunt Regina, Shannon, Jonathan, Meghan, Vicki and Alison,

Uncle Edwin is in one of my earliest childhood memories. I was driving in the front seat of his car with him. He was belting out some song that was playing the radio at his top volume and also demonstrated a little showmanship as he steered the car with only his KNEES!!!

This is one of countless memories I can simply close my eyes and relive. I can see him before me now singing a song, beaming at someone’s story, talking with passion, smiling his big smile.

Many times he shared a quiet moment with me and I felt his love and support. Other times we spent together, he gave me proud encouragement as if what I’d accomplished was something magical. Every time I saw him, he had his arms open wide and couldn’t wait for a hug.

Uncle Edwin was a big man; he was a force to be reckoned with. I know he impacted an incredible number of people and I feel lucky that I was one of them.

My heart goes out to each of you. He will be so tremendously missed and I am so sorry that he’s gone.

Love and warm hugs to you all,
Jacky, Addison & Hunter Smith

To Regina, Shannon, Jonathon, and families:

I am truly heartbroken. Dad (Norm O’Driscoll) called yesterday as soon as he heard the sad news of Ed’s passing.

I first met Ed in the ’70s at the Roberts’ Building where National Life called home in St. John’s. Dear Ed would always welcome me to see his fish tank behind his desk…even though he was working at 7:00 pm on a Saturday. I cannot tell you how often that happened. You know, he always had the bery biggest smile for me…a young child disturbing his overtime work. He had he same smile for my boy in recent years, and again for me when I saw him last.

Dad and Ed worked together for what feels like my lifetime. I would knock around with Shannon and Jonathon at the Torbay Rec Centre while Dad and Ed played squash.

Ed made every room alight with beauty and charm.

My very sincerest sympathies and most hearftfelt condolences to the entire Drover family. Wishing you comfort and peace. Thank you for sharing him with me and my brother.

Kindest regards,

Chantelle O’Driscoll

Regina and Family…..I am so saddened to hear of Ed’s passing. He endured such a long hard road over the past numbers of years .

I enjoyed working with him very much and will always remember him.
My sincerest condolences to you and your extended family.

To the man who gave me my first (and most likely- last) taste of scotch, I raise a glass to you and to your tremendous inspiration and fighting spirit. Rest well.

Heartfelt condolences to Regina, Shannon, John, Meghan and the entire family. Me. Drover fought a courageous battle with such quiet dignity. May he now be at rest knowing he did all he could. He will be missed by so many. May your memories bring you comfort in this time of sorrow. It is time to R I P now.

Aunt Regina, Shannon, Jonathan, Meghan and families,

I haven’t got much to say because to be frank, since mom called me and told me that Uncle Edwin had peacefully passed away, I’ve kind of been “off” and void of anything worthwhile to say. Maybe because there’s WAY too much to say about Uncle Edwin and I can’t possibly get it out. He will truly never be forgotten, and we were so lucky to have him in our lives. What a wonderful, positive, and charming uncle he was to all of us nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews!!

We are there with you in spirit, and I will celebrate Uncle Edwin with every accomplishment in my life, and the lives of my children. You can count on it.

Love to you all……

Aidan, Ann and Family,
So sorry to hear of Edwin passing away. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time. God Bless and may you find comfort knowing he is at peace and with the Lord.
Jim and Joyce Crowley

Regina and extended family of Eddie
On the road of his life – Eddie Drover was often in the fast lane – as a dedicated volunteer – in his business and other commercial ventures -in the political arena as a respected advisor and in his social circle as a raconteur and generous in nature. All hands knew when Eddie Drover was in the room. He was a friend to many and in his Community he made a difference to many people. His valiant endurance over the past many years is indeed inspiring.
He is now at rest – may that rest be in peace.
Sincere condolences to all to whom he was endeared.

“He was an exemplary and loving family man, a successful and hard working business man, and a passionate and proud Newfoundlander and Labradorian. He made this a better place.” Danny Williams
