Obituary for Ernest Frances Ledgerwood

Ledgerwood, Ernest Francis - July 29, 1936 – June 10 2020.

Ernie was born in Vancouver BC and attended UBC, graduating with the UBC Medical School class of 1960. Ernie went into general practice on Victoria Drive in Vancouver. On June 17, 1961 he married Lynn Barner. They raised three daughters, Marya (Muff), Jennifer and Alison. Ernie continued to practice medicine in Vancouver until 1988 when he and Lynn relocated to Whistler BC where they ran a busy one-man practice. In 1999 they moved themselves and the practice to Squamish. Ernie retired from medicine in 2007 but remained an active volunteer in the community lending his considerable talents to the West Coast Railway Heritage Park, the Britannia Mine Museum, the Squamish Men’s Shed, and the Squamish Lions Club as well as innumerable volunteer shifts for the 2010 Olympic Games.

Ernie was a man of many talents and interests which gave him and Lynn the opportunity to become involved in the Sports Car Club of BC, the Vancouver Folk Music Festival, the Vancouver INDY race and many other fascinating turns. He loved his patients, music, cars, skiing, his woodworking shop, and most of all, his family.
Ernie is predeceased by his father Ernest Francis Ledgerwood ; his mother Jean Eva May (Cook) Ledgerwood; and his sister Patricia Jean Birch. He is survived by his wife Lynn, his daughters Muff (Doug) Hackett, Jennifer (Peter) Thornton and Alison Ledgerwood (Ric Ernst) as well as his grandchildren Jesse (Peta) Hackett, Megan Hackett (Adam Dryborough) and Jaylynn Henry.

In lieu of flowers please make donations to the Squamish Hospice Society – www.squamishhospice.com
A gathering will be held at a later date. If you would like to be notified please email eledgerwood@telus.net.

I am so glad you all were able to attend the Westwood reunion last year. Thank you for the special "Datsun cookie.". I hope Ernie was able to talk to lots of his old friends. We'll miss him.

Your husband, Lynn and Dad, Muff was a very special fellow. I alsways enjoyed running into him and having a few words and I will never forget how he helped me pick out a good seat for my toilet. What a sweetie and always good for a chuckle. H will be remembered and missed by many.

I was so sorry to hear about Dr. Ledgerwood's passing. He was my GP from the late 70s to 1985, when we left to live in Ottawa. The only doctor I was invited to address by his Christian name and the only one who would give me a big hug every time. Always there for me with great advice and affection, and I could rely on him for every health assistance. I was glad to hear he'd moved to Whistler, but after one Christmas card we lost touch. My condolences to his family in your immense loss of such a caring and compassionate man.
With much love from Diana, Paul Sr. and Paul Jr.

Dr Ledgerwood was our doctor when we lived in Whistler from 1993 until his retirement. He took great care of us and with Lynn attended to our medical needs with great care and attention.
His volunteering contributions to community organizations will be missed.
Our sincere condolences to Lynn and all the Ledgerwood family.
