Ernest DAY

DAY, Ernest Edward “Ernie”

Ernie completed his earthly journey at Baillie House, peacefully, in the early morning hours of Saturday, September 10th. He leaves to mourn his passing a large family and many friends, including his wife of 61 years, Gail, sons Robin (Patricia), Kevin (Anna), daughter Kristel Nuspl (David), Ernie’s grandchildren, Christina Charles (Tim), Pamela McCaughan (Daniel), Michelle Day,Alyssa Day, Skyler Day, Jacob Nuspl, and Taylor and Matthew Nuspl. Despite his many health problems, Ernie lived long enough to also welcome four beautiful great granddaughters, Hannah and Maya Charles, and Claire and Hailey McCaughan. He is also survived by his three sisters, Lillian Giesbrecht of Winnipeg, Marjorie Henry of St. Rose, MB, and Shirley Marko of Smithers, and brother Frank of Kelowna. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by two sons, infant Scott (1969), and Brian in 1975, a sister Doreen Moman (Red Deer, AB) and brother James (Minitonas, MB).

The family wishes to thank Dr. Paul Simonsic, and all the caring Nurses & Staff at Baillie House and Ridge Meadows Hospital, for their excellent care of Ernie over the past two and a half years. Please, in lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of choice would be most appreciated.

A Memorial Service will be held at Haney Presbyterian Church at 11858 216th St, Maple Ridge at 10:00 am on Saturday, September 24th. Private interment to follow.
