Ernest LeMessurier



Ernest (Ernie) Dawes LeMessurier passed away peacefully at the age of 82 on Monday, March 5, 2012 at St. Joseph’s Auxiliary in Edmonton, Alberta. Ernie is survived by his wife, Mary; his four children Willa (Paul), Jil (Terry), Tim (Tammie) and Andrew (Kathleen); and six grandchildren Alexandra, Cameron, Joshua, Olivia, Peter and Ross. Ernie was predeceased by his father, Ernest LeMessurier, in 1932 and his mother, Elizabeth LeMessurier (nee Dawes) in 1991. Ernie was a loving husband, an amazing father, grandfather and good friend to many. He was born in Montreal on November 26th, 1929 where he married Mary Murray in 1953. Ernie and Mary moved to Halifax in 1958 where they settled raising their family. The LeMessurier family moved to Edmonton, Alberta in 1971. He spent the bulk of his working years with R. L. Crain where he made many enduring friendships. Ernie lived a full life and was very involved in his community-a proud and vocal Conservative, a member of the Rotary Club, an avid curler and a huge Edmonton Oiler and Eskimo fan. Ernie and Mary spent seven years in England in the 1990’s where he was in his element-loving the people and the culture. Ernie will be remembered for his great sense of humor, his many jokes and always being the life of the party. He was a great friend, always the one keeping in contact with those from long ago and those from not that long ago. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Misericordia Hospital, the University of Alberta Hospital and St. Joseph’s Auxiliary for their compassion and care. Ernie would want us to keep smiling! At Ernie’s request, there will not be a funeral service. A family celebration of Ernie’s life will take place at a later date.

In Loving Memory of
Ernest LeMessurier
