August 4, 1939 – July 19, 2016

It is with heavy hearts that our cowboy took his final trail ride on July 19, 2016 at the age of 76 years.

Ernie was a long time resident of Bragg Creek and loved his life there. He was involved in many groups, including the Bragg Creek Snowbirds, of which Ernie was president. He was an active, long time member of Local 496 Plumbers and Steamfitters, with a special interest in education.

Ernie is survived by his lifetime love Marjory; three children Pam (Charlie Holschuh), Kelly (Jon) Proud and Darcy; four grandchildren Michelle, Cody, Robin and Carmen (Jamie); brothers Peter (Virginia), Roy (Mary) and Mike; and many other special family members.

Ernie was predeceased by his brother Bill; and sister Lee.

The family would like to send out a big thank you to Black Diamond Homecare, and the angels at Sarcee Hospice for helping us with Ernie’s journey.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Ernie at Redwood House (1 Manyhorses Drive, Redwood Meadows), on Monday, July 25, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. Please come in your best colourful cowboy attire. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Melanoma Network of Canada,
482 South Service Rd E. Unit #110
Oakville, Ontario L6J 2X6. Email: https://www.melanomanetwork.ca/. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Ernie Shewchuk, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Cochrane, 369 RAILWAY STREET, COCHRANE. Telephone: 403-932-4740.
