Ernst Willie Alder
October 20, 1929 ~ April 8, 2023 (age 93) 93 Years Old
It is with much love and sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ernie Alder. Ernie was born in Wittenbach, Switzerland but traveled to Canada in his twenties. He settled in Prince George and met his wife Doris at a Swiss Club social. They were married for almost 30 years before her passing. He is also predeceased by his sister Bertie, and his father- in- law Hans Maag.
Left to cherish his memory are his three children: Beverly, Sylvia (Trevor), and Michael, his brother Hans (Nellie) and their children and grandchildren as well as countless foster children. Ernie made a positive impact on those who were fortunate enough to have him in their life. He believed in hard work (Canfor 27 years), and enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He always looked forward to going to Tim Hortons, socializing and savoring every drop of his double double.
The family is incredibly grateful to the caregivers at UHNBC for taking such great care of Ernie. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation.
