June 24: Ed Finch #MakingItPossible

Ed Finch, has a natural talent, skillset and positive attitude for his learned knowledge in: mechanical, electrical, plumbing, welding, wood working and painting.  He enjoys a challenge and says “if it doesn’t work, step back, think, improvise and you make it work and 99.9% of the time it worked!”

In his late 20’s he worked at a well-known muffler shop in Yorkton, Saskatchewan. There was a contest to see who could put on dual exhaust the quickest.  All materials where laid out and ready to go for each competitor.  Ed completed the task in a little over two minutes and was presented the grand prize, a stereo set. Other interests of Ed’s includes painting bird houses his family provides to him to finish off, planting flowers, creating and painting wooden animals, cars, etc. and painting ceramics. He has a passion for wolves and had a pet wolf for 15 years whom he named Chief. Ed also enjoys reading western novels and watching western movies, particularly any movie that stars actors John Wayne or Clint Eastwood. Ed is #MakingItPossible to continue enjoying life to its fullest by filling his days with the things he is most passionate about, despite his diagnosis with ALS.
