Edward Lake, who lost his 3 children in a 2015 impaired driving accident in Vaughan, dies

Edward Lake, who lost his three young children and stepfather in a September 2015 impaired driving accident in Vaughan, Ont., has died.

York Regional Police Chief Jim MacSween confirmed the news in a social media post Monday evening.

“Tonight I was deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of Ed Lake. The losses suffered by the Neville-Lake family are heartbreaking,” MacSween wrote. “YRP stands with our friend Jennifer and members of both families. May you find strength in the support of your community.

Late Sunday evening, Lake’s wife and mother of his children, Jennifer Neville-Lake, shared a post on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram with a photo of their children’s grave and the message: “Father’s Day 2022. This shouldn’t be real. It is not possible.

Just a day earlier, Neville-Lake had posted about the breakdown of her marriage on a local Facebook group for moms.

“I’ve been rather discreet lately, more of a reader than an active member. It has been a lot here, including acknowledging the loss of my marriage,” she wrote.

In the post, she also commented on how “unfair the world is” as drunk driver Marco Muzzo was reportedly released from prison after serving two-thirds of his 10-year sentence that day. Muzzo was granted full parole on February 9, 2021.

“My multiple life sentences will never end,” Neville-Lake said.

Daniel, 9, Harrison (Harry), 5, and Milagros (Milly) Neville-Lake, 2, and their grandfather Gary Neville, 65, were killed in the collision, which also resulted in serious injuries suffered by Jennifer’s mother and grandmother.
