I want to express our deepest sympathy and express my personal respect for Ernie.

I met Ernie many years ago when he first became associated with the RE/MAX organization. I was always so impressed with his sincere personality and concern for his client's and sales associate's best interests. He was always positive and charismatic. I looked forward to seeing Ernie at any of our functions, not only to share business conversation but to talk about our personal lives as well.

He made an indelible contribution to our organization’s success and to me personally as well.

Elton Ash, Regional Executive Vice President, RE/MAX of Western Canada

I got to know Ernie when we both began our real estate career in Winnipeg. For a time, early on, we worked in the same company and even when we did not, our friendship was good and often enjoyed a lunch or coffee together to discuss the events of our endeavours. We worked on committees together and looked for each other at conferences. Ernie was a true friend to many and I will miss him. My condolences to Vi and the family.
