December 31, 1956 - May 20, 2022
In loving memory ~
Residing in Vavenby, B.C. - Formerly North Vancouver. Ernie died in his sleep at the age of 65 at home in Vavenby B.C.
He was predeceased by his wife Tracy Lawlor (McComber) in November of 2020, mother Marguerita (Rita), father Patrick (Patty)
Left to mourn his loss is his son Zachary, brother Gordon (Sharon), sister Diane (Sandy), sister Janice, sister-in-law Shelley (Jeff) and many nieces, nephews and friends.
Ernie spent the majority of his career with TransLink working on the north shore. After his retirement from Trans Link, Ernie was not ready to simply stop working and found employment with On Call in the Clearwater region.
Tracy's untimely passing shook Ernie's world and while he and Zach were navigating their "new normal" he decided it was time to stop working full time. School bus driving came along as a good fit with mornings & afternoons providing flexibility of time with Zachary & Ernie's German Shepherd Charlie.
Ernie's family would like to extend our thanks to Clearwater Victim Services, the many neighbours & friends who stopped by with condolences and supportive caring. A special thank you to Vavenby neighbours Brian & Deanna who are angels on earth with their kindness & caring being demonstrated by both their words & actions.
A celebration of life will be decided and announced at a later date. The family can be contacted via email at
In lieu of flowers, Ernie's family asks you make a donation to Clearwater Victim Services, or a charity of your choice.

Your condolences will be approved within one business day. You will need a valid Facebook account. Please email us if you have any questions.
