Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
I have many fond childhood memories of my Uncle Ewart; holidays spent with Grandma and him on the farm (often with some of our cousins), special holiday gatherings, visits from him and Grandma after I was married. We were all so excited when he got married, and then brought us a new little cousin, as well as some new step-cousins! He was quiet, but always the jokester, teasing his nieces and nephew every chance he got. We will miss you, but will hang on to the memories. Rest in peace, Uncle. - Posted by: Debbie Dionne (niece) on: Aug 03, 2021
I (Isabel) remember visiting Ewart with his mother on the farm north of Somerset many years ago. Sincere condolences to daughter Penny, sister Doris and brother Gerald and Lois. - Posted by: Bill and Isabel Acheson (family connection) on: Jul 26, 2021
