Ernest Albert Silvester

June 1, 1923 - March 7, 2012


Ernie passed away peacefully with his family nearby. He was born in Powell River and lived here all his life except for a short period when he served in the Royal Canadian Navy during WWII. He took an apprenticeship as a pipe-fitter with the Powell River Company and worked in the mill for 42 years.

He met the love of his life Agnes, and they spent 65 happy years together. He was predeceased by his brother George, sister Edith and wife Agnes. Left to mourn are their children Bill (Angela), Don (Penny), Christine (Bill), Bob (Dot), Dave (Jackie), Joanne, Ernie (Kim) and numerous grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. He also leaves behind his brothers-in-law Bill (Mary), Walter (Bea) and sisters-in-law Isobel, Margaret (George) and nieces and nephews.

Dad was a life member of the Royal Canadian Legion, president and director of the Sunset Homes Society (Olive Devaud Residence) and in his younger days had been a member of the Powell River Pipe Band and a volunteer fireman.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to the charity of your choice. A memorial service will be held Friday, March 16 at 1 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 164.
