Obituary of Edward McCafferty


February 11, 1947 - Glasgow, Scotland

November 30, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


“God called your name so softly, that only you could hear,

No one heard the footsteps, of angels drawing near.

The golden gates stood open; God saw you needed rest.

His garden must be beautiful, he only takes the best.”


Edward McCafferty passed away suddenly in his home on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, at the age of 75 years.


Eddie was born in Glasgow Scotland to Mary and Patrick McCafferty. He was the youngest of six children. Eddie arrived in Calgary, AB on December 16, 1975, where he resided ever since. 


He loved to sing and taught himself to play guitar.  In his earlier years, he would often be the life of the party showing off his musical talent.  To those who knew Eddie, knew him as a kind helpful sole who took great satisfaction in helping his friends out when they were in need.  He was a hard worker and enjoyed playing the role of the family handyman - his family enjoyed letting him play that role – he had a solution for everything.  Eddie had an infectious laugh that could be heard around the house brining a smile to everyone who could hear.  He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.  


May your soul rest in peace, dad, granddad, brother, uncle, and friend.


Eddie is survived by his loving daughters Tracey (Neal), and Claire; his grandsons Logan and Brady – all residing in Calgary, AB. He is also survived by his sisters Mary (John), Winn (Alex), Francis and Kathleen; as well as all of his nieces and nephews – all residing in the U.K.  Edward is predeceased by both of his parents and his brother Michael.
