After a courageous battle with cancer, Ernie Davidson passed away with family by his side on Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at the age of 62 years. Ernie was married to the love of his live Carolyn for 39 years; was a loving and involved father to Jennifer Pigeon (Chuck) and Madelyn Davidson (Mike Stewart); a doting and most amazing grandfather to Kyle, Taylor, Blake and Kensley Pigeon and Breanna Davidson, all of Williams Lake, BC; brother to Lillian Davidson of Port Alberni and Jean Gardner (Ian) of New Zealand and uncle to his nieces and nephew. Sadly predeceased by his parents Don and Rae Davidson. Ernie was a compassionate and giving man, always ready to help fill a need. Ernie not only had a soft spot in his heart for pets but also had a passion for hunting and participating in trap events with his grandchildren. A private graveside service will be held and a public Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In his memory, donations may be made to the SPCA, 709 Bond Lake Road, Williams Lake, BC, V2G 4Y3 or the WL Sportsman’s Association (Box 4097, Williams Lake, BC, V2G 2V2).

    Sorry to hear of Ernie’s passing. I enjoyed working with Ernie in the BCFS and we stayed in touch after retirement. Peggy and I enjoyed his visits to Vernon and it was obvious he was very devoted to his grandchildren. We enjoyed the annual swap of wine for moose meat every fall. Ernie fought his cancer bravely and without complaint.
