Ledgerwood, Ernest Francis - July 29, 1936 – June 10 2020.
Ernie was born in Vancouver BC and attended UBC, graduating with the UBC Medical School class of 1960. Ernie went into general practice on Victoria Drive in Vancouver. On June 17, 1961 he married Lynn Barner. They raised three daughters, Marya (Muff), Jennifer and Alison. Ernie continued to practice medicine in Vancouver until 1988 when he and Lynn relocated to Whistler BC where they ran a busy one-man practice. In 1999 they moved themselves and the practice to Squamish. Ernie retired from medicine in 2007 but remained an active volunteer in the community lending his considerable talents to the West Coast Railway Heritage Park, the Britannia Mine Museum, the Squamish Men’s Shed, and the Squamish Lions Club as well as innumerable volunteer shifts for the 2010 Olympic Games.
Ernie was a man of many talents and interests which gave him and Lynn the opportunity to become involved in the Sports Car Club of BC, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, the Vancouver INDY race and many other fascinating turns. He loved his patients, music, cars, skiing, his woodworking shop, and most of all, his family.
Ernie is predeceased by his father Ernest Francis Ledgerwood ; his mother Jean Eva May (Cook) Ledgerwood; and his sister Patricia Jean Birch. He is survived by his wife Lynn, his daughters Muff (Doug) Hackett, Jennifer (Peter) Thornton and Alison Ledgerwood (Ric Ernst) as well as his grandchildren Jesse (Peta) Hackett, Megan Hackett (Adam Dryborough) and Jaylynn Henry.
