December 6, 1931 – May 11, 2016

Our beloved father, grandfather, great grandfather and devoted husband entered this world on December 6, 1931 and was peacefully beckoned by God on May 11, 2016 while at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

He is survived by Margaret, loving wife of 63 years, daughter Donna, sons Bud, Mark (Irene), Ronald (Kathy), and daughter Margaret-Anne (Daniel), sister Florence Paskevich, 11 grandchildren, and 17 great grandchildren.

Ernie loved his family, visiting and talking with his many friends, fishing, hunting, and the outdoors. He was a good farmer and loved it.
