He is survived by his daughter Cindy Wassvik and grandson Milo, godson Michael Slater, Kamloops, son James (Anna) Turnbull of Ontario, brother Victor (Gerda) Roesnik, Kelowna, sister Lena (Chuck) Trebilcock, Abbotsford, Aunt Lina Thiessen, numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and many friends.
On behalf of Ernie’s family we would like to send our sincere gratitude for the excellent care he received. The doctors, nurses and staff of 6-South at RIH as well as the staff at Overlander Trinity Hospice, Kamloops. Mostly we would like to thank Dr. Howie, the nurse and staff of Trinity for their incredible care of Ernie these past months.
