1936 – 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce that our beloved husband, father, and grand-father Ernie Daviduck was called to eternal rest on February 27, 2014 at the Lacombe Hospital surrounded by family members at the age of 77. Ernie was born on November 2, 1936 in Barrhead, AB, son of Max and Anne Daviduck. He will be dearly missed by his loving wife Joan of 57 years and his four surviving children and families. Cameron (Arlene) of Ladysmith, BC., Wendy (Blaine) Mathieu and Aiden of San Francisco, CA., Darcy (Joanne) Ashlee, (Aaron) and Jessica of Lacombe, AB., and Darren (Carolynn) Katelynn, Gregory, Emilee and Brendan of Kelowna, BC. He also leaves to mourn his sister Shirley Mueller of Kelowna, BC., and sister-in-law Maxine (Ed) Kary of Hines Creek, AB. Survived by sisters-in-law Marie (Ernie) Kuryluk of Hines Creek, AB., Rhonda Heck of Clairmont, AB., and brother-in-law John (Sharon) Isinger of Grimshaw, AB., also numerous nieces and nephews. Ernie was predeceased by his mother Ann, in 1989 and his father Max, in 2002, his mother-in-law and father-in-law Tillie and John, niece Tracy Kary and brothers-in-law Al Mueller and Wilfred Heck. Ernie was an entrepreneur throughout his whole life and had various business ventures including a Farm Equipment Dealership and Gulf Service Station in Manning, AB. In Grimshaw, AB., he owned Mobile Home and RV Sales and Flair Furniture Store. In Kelowna, BC., he owned a Farm Equipment Dealership. In Grande Prairie, AB., he owned Countryside RV’s and then moved to Lacombe in 1993 where he established the A & W Restaurant, Work World and Home Furniture store. After retiring from business, he and Joan became Snowbirds who travelled to Arizona and Southern California every winter. He enjoyed working in his Wood Shop building small furniture and items for his wife, children and grand kids. Ernie was very proud of his Ukrainian Heritage and he wanted his grand children to appreciate that by experiencing it also. This included summers camps spent at the Ukrainian Village and RV road trips to visit family at reunions from Alberta to Manitoba and Yellowknife, NWT. Donations can be made to the Lacombe Palliative Care Society or charity of choice. A huge thank you to Dr. Olivier and the nurses and staff at the Lacombe Hospital for their wonderful care. In keeping with Ernie’s wishes, we will have a Celebration of Ernie’s Life which will be announced and held at a later date.
