He will be missed most dearly by Friends, notably Russ and Doris Hugill; Ralph Lake and family including nephew Bert Brooker. He will also be in the hearts of the many Brookers, Woods, Souths, Burkes and many other family friends. Ernie will be remembered most as a gentleman, a loving husband, a good father and grandfather, with a willingness to help others. Always ready with a good joke and intelligent conversation. At his best, an under bogey golfer, as comfortable out of the sand, as on the short grass. A forward thinking business man, he led the way in no medical, life insurance in Canada. Special thanks to the Staff and residents of The Village of Sandalwood Park. As he said of many things, which seemed huge at the time, of this "...It's Nothing in a Big World".
