Of Wiarton, at Gateway Haven on Sunday September 4, 2016. Hughie Edward McArthur at the age of 83 years. Loving husband of Margaret (nee Lundsted). Devoted father of Dayle (Jim Collins), of Wiarton.

Predeceased by his parents, Hughie and Annie; a brother, Jim (Ruby); sisters, Helen (Percy Davis), and Vera (Don Gibson); and a sister-in-law, Lise Serio. Ed was the proud owner of the Barrie Boxing School and was inducted into the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame in 1990. He owned Barrie’s first self-serve cafeteria and buffet, and catered Molson Park in Barrie, feeding over 120,000 people in a single weekend.
