It is with great sadness and a heavy heart to announce the sudden, but peaceful, passing of Ernest Bolton at the age of 77 (1944-2021). Ernie was diagnosed with pancreatic and liver cancer just a few weeks ago and spent his final days getting wonderful care by the palliative care team at St. Paul’s Hospital. Ernie is survived by his loving wife, Patricia Bolton, his two daughters Coral Nichols (Jeremy, Kaci, Ryley) and Robin Watt (Cameron, Marley, Sidney), his siblings Eileen Lewis, Allan (Lynn) Bolton, Lois (Jim) Bulbeck, Sylvia (Jim) McClinton, Murray (Laurie) Bolton as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. Ernie spent his 40 year career working as an underground miner near Vanscoy. He had a true passion for physical labour! Ernie enjoyed spending his winters down south at FOY where you could find him bobbing in the pool, playing shuffleboard, frisbee golf, and gleaning the fields to share with friends. In the summer he tended to his gardens, spent time on the boat fishing at Good Spirit Lake and watching his grandchildren play. He had a love for sports, knew every baseball game score, and loved to watch the Leafs. He will be remembered as a wise, humble, and gentle man. As his wishes were to forego a funeral, please make a toast, raise a glass and share some memories in remembrance of his kind soul. Condolences/Tributes/Donations: In lieu of flowers please make a donation in Ernie’s name to the palliative care unit at St. Paul’s Hospital in Saskatoon.
Our condolences to you Pat, and Coral and Robin and their families. We were so sorry to hear about Ernie. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Truly a humble and good man
Our sincere sympathy to all of you. Ernie and Pat were such wonderful neighbours to Frank and Ethel especially when Frank was ill. We will remember his great smile. Thoughts and prayers.
Deepest Sympathy to you Pat, Coral and her family, and Robin and her family. I will raise a glass tonight and toast Ernie and remember the wonderful times shared with him (and you Pat). He was a wonderful man, and will remember him always.
Hugs to you all!
