Ernest George Trudel

May 18, 1933 - February 24, 2014


Predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Mary, and brother, John Trudel.  Ernest leaves to mourn, his loving wife of 53 years, Arlene, children David (Laurel), Terry Andriuk (Billy) and Ken (Mas), plus 4 grandchildren Kaylene, Robby, Adam and Duncan, also two nieces, numerous in-laws and cousins in Alberta and B.C.

Ernie grew up in Edmonton and he farmed in Legal and Thorhild, Alberta.  He owned trudel plumbing before moving to his beloved acreage in Duncan, B.C. in 1981.  He loved camping, canoeing, sailing, gardening and socially competitive recreation – winning gold in 1990 BC Summer Games pitching horseshoes and assorted trophies for good sportsmanship.  He coached minor league hockey and was a spur toward getting a multi-purpose arena in Thorhild.  His easy companionship and good nature will be sadly missed by all who loved him.

Ernie requests no funeral service.  A remembrance tea will be held at his home on May 18, 2014.

A special thank you to all who kept in contact, offered support and care at the end of his life’s journey.  Ernie was touched by all who cared.
