The death of Ernest Joseph Fournier of Miramichi, NB, husband of the late Margaret (Curtis) Fournier occurred at his residence on Wednesday, May 8, 2019 at the age of 83.
Born in Newcastle, NB, Ernest was the son of the late Wilfred and Alice (Perry) Fournier.
In Ernest’s younger years he was a truck driver and operator.
Ernest couldn’t wait until the winter month were over because he loved to be outside and finding a four leaf clover was something that was never a problem.
Driving his car and fishing was also a great love of his and he could repair anything he put his hands on.
