Obituary of Ernest Dennis
It is with sadness we announce the passing of Ernie on January 23, 2022 at Erie Shores Hospital. Beloved husband of Diana (nee Ouellette) for 65 years. Loving father of Tammy Dennis and Lou-Anne Mayville (late Paul 2017). Cherished grandfather of Chantelle, Carolyn (Emmanuel) and Christopher (Alyssa). Great grandfather of Katarina. Son of the late Isaac and Ruth Dennis. Predeceased by brothers of Ken Dennis, Howard Dennis, Orville Dennis, and sister Mabel Boudreau. Brother-in-law of Hedy Dennis, Betty Dennis, Agnes Dennis, Valerie Dobson (late Robin), Jeannette Ware (Neil), Richard Ouellette (Sherry) (late Judy). Ernie will be missed by nieces, nephews and friends. Ernie was a skilled millwright, who loved to work with his hands. His visions and ultimate workmanship amazed those that saw his finished accomplishments. We will miss seeing Ernie riding around town on his scooter, in line at the Tim Horton’s Drive thru (and for all of you that bought him a coffee, thank you!) or tending to various lawn, garden and snow removal needs with his John Deere tractor. Ernie lovingly supported Diana in her various church and community choirs, jumping in where needed; be it singing, narrating or providing technological sound support.
A private family service was held. If desired, memorial donations made to Heart and Stroke Foundation, Diabetes Canada, or Essex United Church would be appreciated by contacting the Reid Funeral Home, 87 Maidstone Avenue East, Essex (519-776-4233).
