Ernest Callow

It is with sadness the family announces the peaceful passing of Ernie on Aug 6TH, 2020 after a brief struggle with cancer. Ernie was born in Regina, SK on July 7, 1950. Ernie spent most of his working life in the restaurant business managing/owning a variety of restaurants. After a bad fall in 1993, Ernie retired and became involved in a variety of volunteer positions. He spent many years as a volunteer with the SK Air Cadet League. Ernie’s most recent passion with the Lions Foundation Dog Guides program he received his “Lyra”.  Ernie was the epitome of the Thompson quote “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!” Ernie was predeceased by his parents Thelma and Mickey, brother Jimmy, sisters Glenna, Donelda, and his son Patrick. He is survived by Shirley his wife of 47 years,  his sons and their families Chris (Amber), Gabby, Izzy, Brooklyn, Jon (Chelsey), McKenna, Norah, sister Margaret Hainstock, brother Ken Ivarson, sister in law Dorothy Callow, in-laws Ivan and Phyllis Chubb and numerous relatives and friends.  There are many thanks to be given, but most importantly, we want to thank all the medical staff that tended to him during his struggle.  The family wants to specifically thank Dr. Mari La Cock. Donations in his memory may be made to Saskatchewan Air Cadet League, 2205 Victoria Ave Regina SK, S4P 0S4 or the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides, 152 Wilson St, Oakville, ON L6K 0G6

A Private Memorial Service will be held on Tuesday, August 11, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. Livestream of the service available at
