March 17, 1935 - January 24, 2020

Ernie will be greatly missed by all, namely his wife Helen Koterla; daughters, Tracey DeVisser (Darren), Tammy Anderson (Donald); grandchildren, Joel Schillaci, Kyle Schillaci (Alyssa) and Jessica Schillaci (Jake) and his great-granddaughter Rylee Schillaci.
Calm and peaceful he is sleeping, he is not gone. He's playing his violin (his passion) for all the angels.
Ernie was a very loving, caring, giving person to all.
When you think of him, don't think with tears; only smiles and laughter. When you see butterflies, dream of him or hear his music; know that he is watching over you.
As per his wishes, there will be no service. His wish was to be cremated.
Any donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or charity of your choice.
