September 12, 1930 - May 6, 2021

Ernie passed at Gimli Community Health Centre at 6:50 p.m. on May 6, 2021 with his family at his bedside.
Ernie was the third child of eight, born to Ben and Anna Johnson on the farm in Howardville. He was predeceased by parents, Ben and Anna Johnson; brothers, Edwin (Anna), Arthur, Bobby and Harvey; in-laws, Barney and Johanna Hjorleifson and son Terry.
He is survived and loved by wife Gloria; children, David (Martina), Norman (Della), Linea (Steven) and their families; sister Janice (Bob); brothers, Arnold (Marilyn), Tom (Judy) and their families; sisters-in-law, Darlene (Bob), Linda (Ron), Brenda (Harry), Kathy and their families. He loved very much and is loved by 12 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
His first love was his family, number two was hunting and fishing or anything that took him outdoors. He was a man known for his quiet character and strong wit.
He worked in the construction field in the north, Thompson, Snowlake, Wabowden and The Pas. He moved from Thompson to The Pas in 1970. There he went to work at the pulp and paper mill until retirement in 1994. At that time he started harvesting wild rice.
Many thanks to Gimli Community Health Centre nurses and Dr. Ade for their care and compassion during his hospital stay.
