Van Raalte, Ernest
Date of Death: July 8, 2004
“Eagle Man, climbing the skies Red light of evening falls like rain, Rainbow’s my yarn, the sky is my loom, I will weave sunsets later on…” Buffy St. Marie Lover of life, renaissance man, wise teacher, mentor and student of life to the end, Ernest has passed into the light. He wore many hats: management consultant, General Manager of the Canadian Nurses Association, jazz musician, accomplished photographer, artist, writer and philosopher. His passion for life, his love of learning, his creativity and curiosity, his patience and dignity reside as gifts for those he has left behind. He will be remembered with deep gratitude and respect by his children Sharon, Kelly and Nancy, his grandchildren Emilie, Julie, and Teo, his sisters Eileen and Joan, and countless others whose lives he touched in many special ways. He embraced and extended fatherly love to those who were important in the lives of his family, including Rosaire, Ron, Robert, Nick, and Athamis (latest adopted daughter). Nancy and her son Teo, living on Vancouver Island, and Kelly in North Bay, often felt separated by distance, but not by the presence of his love. Let their words speak for us all. “Dad taught me so many valuable life lessons and helped shape who I am today. Be open to new possibilities, never stop striving to learn more, pay attention, listen with great care. With Dad, I felt a steady, calm, strong and caring presence in my life. I will miss his incredible spirit, creativity, his fabulous wit and just hearing him say, "I love you too, dear." Nancy ”My Grandpa was a great character, even though I did not get to see him very often in the later years of his life, the love was still there. I remember when I was a lot younger my mom and I would go to Ottawa to visit him and my aunts and cousins. We would always go at Christmas time and have loads of fun. There was a big hill there that I used to go sledging on. There are so many memories from being back East with my Grandpa and he and all those memories will always have a special place in my heart. He believed in me and believed that I could do anything if I put my mind to it. He was a musician. I hope to become one too.” Teo. “In so many ways, you embodied the qualities that have shaped my view of the world; your sense of justice and openness and acceptance of others, your reverence for the beauty of all living things, your strength and determination to continue to grow and learn, your sensitive presence to those in need, your mastery of many disciplines, your patience, optimism and gratitude for life. As you began your final journey toward spirit you had no regrets, but were full of the awe and wonder of life… Thank you Dad.” Kel When Emilie and Julie realized he had the same name as the Sesame Street character it stuck and he was then referred to as Ernie and not Grandpa. Lately, he could often be heard to say with a wide grin, “I don’t have to, I’m retired.” He could also recite the Lord’s Prayer in Latin! You were a full-spectrum guy, Dad, and you have no idea how you will be missed. He has joined the love of his life Doreen who preceded him into the light in 1982. Please send expressions of sympathy to a charity of your choice, and remember him by celebrating life.
