    Deepest sympathy to Brenda and all the family. Ern was a generous and kind neighbour to us, in all the years we lived on ‘the block’. He will be remembered fondly by all ‘The McKees’.

  • Anne Newberry, (nee Hillier)

    So sorry to read of Ern’s passing, another link in the family chain is broken. Still working on the history of our GGgrandfather. Thinking of you Brenda and all the family.

  • Trevor Aust

    Brenda, Heather and families, Julianne and Trevor extend their sincere condolences upon the passing of your dear husband and father.

  • Judy and Terry Hunyadi

    Dear Brenda, Rohan, Terry and Heather and all your families.
    Our condolences on the passing of Ern. We remember him with fondness as he was a true gentleman who always had a smile and a kind word. A dedicated family man and great contributor and supporter of the footy club.

  • Mike and Ali McKee

    Sorry to hear of Ernie’s passing. Ernie and Brenda have been terrific neighbours to the McKees’ for many years. We could always rely on Ernie’s help if a piece of our equipment broke down or on one ocassion when he killed a snake which had made its way into our house.
    After we moved away, my Sister Louise and I enjoyed visiting Ernie and Brenda and catching up on the local gossip.
    Ernie was a hardworking fellow who always kept his block spotless, so it was a big disappointment to him when he sold the block and the new owners sold the water rights and let the property go to ruin.
    We will sadly miss seeing Ernie when we visit Brenda next.
    RIP Ernie
