Ernest Burgmann

January 28, 1939 - October 15, 2017


After a brave 23-year battle, Ernie succumbed to the horse accident/head injury/stroke he sustained in 1994. He was predeceased by his parents Rudolph and Agatha, brother Rudy and nephew Richard. Ernie will be sorely missed by his wife Arlene, daughter Jackie, sons Brian (Jen) and Troy (his son Dylan, our grandson), brothers Fred (Donna), Gig (Ida) and Art, sister Anne and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Ernie’s strength, determination and sense of humour will be missed by many. A huge thank you to Evergreen Care Unit staff and Dr. DuToit for the loving care he received. A special warm thanks to all the volunteers and Evergreen staff who made the games, parties, music, lunch outings, fun and laughter possible, and also to the Stroke Club, his favourite Tuesday outing. No service by Ernie’s request. There will be a woodland memorial at a future date and an Evergreen tea, also at a future date. If you wish, a donation can be made in Ernie’s honour to the staff and entertainment department of Evergreen Care Unit, 4970 Joyce Avenue, 604.485.2208.

To Arlene and family, my sincere condolences on your loss of Ernie. He really put up a great battle after the horse incident. Wonderful sense of humour. I can still hear his great laughter. I will pass along this sad news to the IPM retirees lunch group.
May his memory be strong in your hearts.

From: Don Boxall
Relation: As a co-worker at Island Paper Mills

Sincere condolences to the Burgmann Family. I enjoyed many years working with Ernie, and will miss him very much

From: Brian jackson
Relation: Former work mate.

My sincere condolences to Arlene and family. Though never met Ernie’s children but had heard some of Ernie’s stories about them. I was work mate of Ernie’s at IPM. He a production man, me the quality control man. Many times we were at loggerheads over quality issues. Ernie, in my book ,was an honest straight shooter of a man. Great sense of humour and a friend. I will miss him but know one day we will be in the presence of each once again. At this time my thoughts and prayers are with Arlene and the family. May God bless each one of you.
