Ernest SMITH

SMITH, Ernest Henry. Jan 23, 1922 – Aug 29, 2013. Ernie passed away at peace and without pain on a cool summer morning at Yale Road Centre. Ernie was born in Craik, Saskatchewan and was stationed at Boundary Bay Airport during WWII where he trained pilots. After the war, he worked at Woodlands School as a Psychiatric Nurse helping the less fortunate. He was very handy building different projects in his workshop in the basement of the house that he largely built in South Surrey. He also loved fishing and spent many days in his small boat on the Strait of Georgia catching salmon and enjoying the ocean – often alone but sometimes with family or friends (he always caught the most and the biggest). Ernie is survived by his wife Peggy and children: Robert, David (wife Gail & grandsons Sean & Kyle), and Cathy. He was a loving husband and dedicated father and the world is lessened by his loss.
