Ernest passed away peacefully in Dunrovin’s Maple House on September 23, 2014 with his family at his side, after his battle with Lewy Bodies Dementia. A Memorial Tea was held October 4, 2014.

He is also survived by his children Brian Bradford of Water Valley, Alberta, Diane (Ray) Greenough of Quesnel and Rick Bradford of Gibsons BC and many nieces, nephews, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Ernie worked as a butcher earlier in life and in the mid sixties, moved his family to Quesnel and began his career in the Logging Industry until he retired. Ernie also served many years as a volunteer firefighter for the Bouchie Lake Fire Department. Ernie loved life and he believed in living it to the fullest. He will be greatly missed by family and friends and remembered as a kind, hard working, fun loving individual.
We would like to extend a heart filled thank you to the staff at Dunrovin’s Maple House, Dr. G Martins and Dr. J Fine for making our Dad feel at home and the care and kindness that he received this past year.
We would also like to show our appreciation to the Daycare program at Dunrovin, we are grateful this program exists.
