Daniel Ernewein

June 14, 1953 - November 12, 2022


We are heartbroken to announce that Dan passed away on November 12, 2022, at the age of 69. Survived by his loving wife Karen and daughters Rachelle, Renee, and Rebecca. Predeceased by his mother, Doris.

Dan left Woodstock, Ontario, after playing baseball for several years and joined the Canadian Armed Forces. As often occurred back then, Dan requested to be stationed anywhere but Winnipeg and in any of the forces except the infantry and was duly posted to the PPCLI in Winnipeg! One highlight of his army career was being sent to Egypt in 1973 as part of the United Nations peacekeeping force during the Suez crisis. He retired from the force in Prince George, BC, where he met and married Karen in 1984 and joined Canada Post, retiring in 2008. In Prince George, he was a respected member of the competitive fastball (a feared pitcher) and tennis communities. Gently aging out of competitive sports, he began to excel in curling and golf. Dan enjoyed fishing, skiing, playing music, and spending time with his family. The entire family moved to Penticton, where he continued his passion for golf. He will be so greatly missed by all of his family.

In lieu of flowers, please send any donations to the Dementia and Parkinson’s Society BC. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
