Reid, Ernest Ramsey McGinnis
With great sadness, the family of Ernest (Ernie) Reid of Tracy, NB, wish to announce his peaceful passing at Hospice Fredericton on March 2, 2023. Ernie was born on September 21, 1940 to the late Hazel (Redstone) and James Reid. He was the loving husband of Carol (Mott) Reid for over 19 years.
Along with his wife Carol, Ernie is also survived by three daughters; Jane (Warren) Lewis, Karen Reid and Esther (Paul) Corbin, two sons; Mark (Teresa) and Paul (Brenda) Reid, two brothers; Eric and Richard Reid, eleven grandchildren, six great grandchildren, step children; Rhonda (Troy), Kathryn (Wes), Ian and Mathew (Karla), and their children and several nieces and nephews.
Ernie had a long career at CN Rail as a machinist, retiring in 1988. He loved music and was an accomplished musician, playing the guitar and accordion and many other instruments. He enjoyed the outdoors and spent many hours hunting and riding his four-wheeler. Ernie worked very hard cutting firewood to heat their home.
Following Ernie’s request there will be no public visitations or funeral.
Arrangements are in the professional care of Sunbury Funeral Home, 5407 Route 101, Central Blissville, NB (368-2413). Condolences: sunburyfuneralhome.com
