John Stanley Ernst

June 21, 1934 - April 29, 2019


We are sad to announce the passing of John (Jack) Stanley Ernst on April 29, 2019. He passed with his loving wife of 52 years and children by his side. John was born on the farm in Shellbrook, Saskatchewan, and as soon as he could drive machinery there was no stopping him. With his brother Ervin and two friends, he moved to Whitehorse in 1957, where he met the love of his life in 1962. They were later married in November 1966, in Nanaimo. Then, moving to Pemberton, there was no adventure too small for John as he found many friends to accompany him in this. After moving to Powell River in 1983, he ended up retiring after he had enough of working on vehicles, minus his John Deere tractor. John was predeceased by his brothers Ralph, Howard and sister Mary. He leaves behind his loving wife Dorothy, son Jim (Sydney), daughter Michelle (Mike), grandchildren Jake, Hailey, Colby and Jordon, his two brothers Lewis (Mamie) and Ervin (Donna), plus many nieces and nephews.
