Ed was born November 21, 1975 to Karen and John Wellwood.  He graduated from Sault College as a Heavy Diesel Mechanic and worked for his family business H. Wellwood & Sons.

Ed was a devoted father, and loved his need for speed.  At any given time you would catch him fixing or making something.  He loved to work on his 1972 Maverick and most of all his dump truck.
