     Obituary:
Obituary of Ernest Parker Bezanson

It is with great sadness and broken hearts, that we announce the passing of Ernest “Ernie” Parker Franklin Bezanson, 85 years of age of Berwick, NS, passed on April 27, 2019 in the Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville.

Born in The Forties community, Ernie had a selfless nature, always willing to lend a hand where needed, from clearing snow from driveways for neighbours to lending his talents as a handy man. His career as plant manager with the Purity Popcorn Company, Toronto, Ontario, allowed him to use many of his skills he has learned.

Retirement for Ernie, was not as some would imagine with all the many projects he had on the go, particularly the annual making of his renowned Sauerkraut. Ernie wouldn’t shy away from larger projects; for example, in his 80’s, he painted a barn with a forty-foot ladder. A lover of animals, Ernie held a special spot in his heart for cats. Nutured by a strong family connection and positive homelife, while living in Ontario, Ernie would host family gatherings most weekends. Ernie loved to have his family and friends close.

Ernie was predeceased by his parents Alfred Herman and Mary Elizabeth (Hiltz) Bezanson; sisters Sara Jane Bezanson, Mary Gwendoline Bezanson, Helen Elsie Bezanson; brothers Alfred Nelson, Henry Hallet; and his companion Rhoda Willchuk.

Ernie is survived by his first wife Elva (Reeves); his loving son Dean (Judy) Bezanson; brother Eric Isiah; sisters Idella “Doll” Burgher and Elizabeth “Betty” Anderson; grandchildren Clifford (Jillian) Bezanson, Rachel (Jeff) Zettler, Brittani Bezanson and Dylan Bezanson; great-grandchildren Wesley Bezanson and Zachary Zettler; Ernie was loved and will be missed by his late companion's children Craig (Karen) Willchuk, Glenn (Karen) Willchuk, Nina Willchuk and Krista Willchuk. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews; and several grandchildren. Ernie will also be missed by his former daughter-in-law, Linda (Amos) Bezanson.

Cremation has taken place. A private family burial will take place at a later date in the Saint Augustine Cemetery, The Forties, NS.4
