Obituary Announcement

Chivers, Ernest Roy


August 27, 1945-February 19, 2021


The last rifle has been fired, the last cast has been reeled in, and the last hand of cards has been dealt. Ernest Roy Chivers returned to his eternal home, his devoted and loving wife Judy (nee: Gander) by his side, shy of their 53rd wedding anniversary. Loving father to Jeff, Mike, and his favourite daughter, Shellie Topping (Pete). Proud Papa Bear to 3 grandchildren, Cole, Tara (Hayden McLean) and Brandon.  Survived by his sister Midge Ripley (Lynnwood) and Rick (Diana) and several family and friends.  Predeceased by his parents Garfield and Marjorie Chivers, Bernice, John Sr., Sternie, Norm and his twin brother Wes. Son-in-law to James Gander (Grace) and Edythe Seeley (Don). Ernie will always be remembered by his contagious smile that lit the room. He was always full of laughter and pranks. He had a mischievous smile that kept you guessing on what was up his sleeve.  Ernie always had a candy in his pocket to share and willingness to help.  He was an avid hunter, fisherman, card player and loved camping. The family would like to thank the staff at Trillium Villa for the extensive and compassionate care they provided for Ernie over the last 2 years, especially in his final days. Family and friends will be received for visitation at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1400 Murphy Road, Sarnia, on Monday, February 22 at 10 am.

Ernie has been received into his heavenly realm free from all diseases. Praise be to God for his life and influence on others as a true Christian brother. He will be missed but never forgotten. May those in his family find solace in this fact. He was a very wonderful person.
