“Ernie” Ernest John Sutherland

17 September 1921 to 7 November 2012

After a long life blessed with friendship and the love of his best friend, Audrey, Ernie died peacefully, without a fuss, on Wednesday, November 7. He lived in Summerland, at La Vista, for 20 years. He and Audrey married in 1945. It was true love from the start. They lived in Vancouver, Edmonton, Burnaby and Kelowna before settling in Summerland – which gave them another batch of wonderful friends, plus the wonderful library, Cake Box Bakery, Zia’s. Besides Audrey, Ernie leaves behind a son Brian and his wife Margot of Vancouver, grandson Brett and wife Lori of Kelowna, grandson Glen and wife Nicky of Langley and their children. Ernie would want the people of Summerland to know how much he appreciated your friendship and kind words, especially during his daily walks around town. No service will be held. No flowers please.
