 Ernie was born on January 28, 1924 to Mary (Bourke) and Ernest Foord. Some of his fondest memories were those working alongside his father in the Bienfait coal mines.  On January 19, 1952, he married his lifelong partner, Balvina (Milewicz).  Their greatest pride was their farm and their greatest joy, their family. 

 A Graveside service will be held in early spring at the Macoun Cemetery.
