Obituary of Ernest Arnold Reid
REID, Ernest Arnold
Feb. 8, 1954 – Oct. 13, 2022
The family of Ernie Reid is shocked and devasted by his sudden passing. For anyone who knew him, it was evident how devoted and loving he was to his family. He will be deeply missed by his wife Mary (Enns); his children, Matthew (Julie-Anne Frank), Karen (Neil Brown), and Julie (Keith McLean); and his nine grandchildren, who are his living legacies; Andersen and Everett Reid; Lydia, Kassie, Jansen, and Felicity Brown; Evan, Grace, and Christian McLean.
He will be greatly missed by his sister Linda Addario and his extended family of brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, many friends, GM brotherhood, fishing buddies and neighbours.
After the loss of his own parents, Arnold Reid and Marion Hill, he knew how precious life was and always prioritized his family. He stated it beautifully that “The hole that was left in his heart was filling up with the birth of each child and grandchild.”
Ernie was living out his retirement dream, spoiling and creating memories with his grandchildren. In warmer weather, you were likely to find him working on his boat or out on the water fishing. He loved to connect with people and share stories. He touched the lives of many during his years of coaching his kids in hockey and soccer.
He will forever be remembered by the chuckle in his laugh, the twinkle in his eye, and the kindness in his heart.
