Ernest was born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
Predeceased by his parents and siblings, he is survived by his loving wife Anne of 36 years, children Darla (Cub), Wendy (John), Denise, Karen (Brian) and many nieces and nephews. Grandchildren Nick, Tracy, Paula and Erin, great grandchildren Trey, Ellis, Maddison, Noel, Isabell, and Paige.
Dad loved his job at the Pulp Mill and took great pride in doing an honest day’s work. His interests included hunting, fishing, swimming, baseball, bowling, square dancing, gardening, cards and sharing his experiences through story telling. He loved music and performing.
He was a loving and dedicated husband and father. He was the favorite uncle to many nephews and nieces and will be missed by all. Dad kept his sense of humor until the end. We will all miss his company and his sense of humor.
