Ernest (Ernie) Walker Johnson
September 23,1948 – April 27, 2013
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved Ernie, husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend. Predeceased by his father Robert, in 1975, and his mother Joyce, in 2011, he is survived by his wife Bonnie, son Robert (Lisa), grandchildren Adam and Lindsey, son Steven (Earla), brothers; Bruce, Robert & Dave (Liz), sister Gail (Al) Folstrom, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Still so full of life and looking forward to the warmer spring days ahead, Ernie left all of us too soon. He passed away at his home early Saturday morning on April 27th. With a strong, easy, gentle confidence, Ernie was very friendly to all he met, and always had a smart remark to make you smile. He loved the innocence and sincerity in children, and told his wife he will miss seeing his small grandchildren grow up. After 4-1/2 long years of a slow deteriorating lung disease, Ernie still looked forward to each day, and on his last Friday, he still asked his wife “What have we got planned for the weekend Honey?” Now free from his silent struggle, Ernie has begun his next adventure, where he’s waiting for us to tell his stories to, about what he’s been up to since he left us. Ernie was unique in every way and will always remain,
UNFORGETTABLE……………..…Till then Ernie, we love you and miss you.
Please join the family for his Celebration of Life on Saturday, June 1st, 2013 at 1:00pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall on 11th Avenue. Ernie was laid to rest by his family on May 2, 2013 at the Elk Falls Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, Ernie would have appreciated donations be made to the CR SPCA in his memory, as he loved dogs and had rescued many from the shelter over the years.
