Edward Gregoory Obituary, Death – I am sorry to inform you that Superintendent Edward (Ed) Gregoory McFADGEN #1639 passed away on January 18, 2023. His passing is something I feel compelled to share with you. I am saddened to inform you of his passing because I feel compelled to do so. I am truly sorry to be the one to break the news to you about his passing, but unfortunately, it is required. Ed enlisted in the Ontario Provincial Police on December 1, 1955, and after he finished his training, he was sent straight to the London Division Headquarters.
Ed served in this capacity until he retired in 1979. On January 22, 1958, he was moved to the Glencoe Detachment so that he could continue his service. This allowed him to continue his work. After being promoted, Ed was given a raise in rank on January 15, 1966, making him eligible for promotion to the rank of Corporal. On November 17, 1969, Ed was transferred to the Bancroft Detachment, and then on May 1, 1973, he was transferred to the Sharbot Lake Detachment.
The year in question was used for both of these different transitions. Ed was promoted to the rank of Sergeant on July 4 of the same year that he received the promotion, and he moved to Parry Sound in 1978 after receiving the promotion.
Following his promotion to the rank of Inspector on May 1, 1984, Ed was transferred to the Chatham District Headquarters. This move came on the same day that Ed also received this promotion. On November 30th, 1987, Ed moved to his new location at the North Bay DHQ in order to begin his new job there.
On December 31, 1990, Superintendent Ed McFadgen retired from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), where he had worked for the previous 35 years. He had served in the OPP. His entire career had been spent serving with the police department up until that point.
Ed had been retired for a combined total of 32 years prior to the time of his passing, which meant that he had reached the age of 90 when he passed away.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the McFadgen family on the loss of a loved one who was a part of their family. Kindly accept them as they are. I pray that God will give him the kind of peace that cannot be explained and will guard his heart and his mind.
