  • Ernie Preece - Ontario and Hamilton Chapters

    Ernie Preece of Hamilton Ontario passed away peacefully at home on Saturday July 4th at the age of 79. A long time member of the Studebaker Drivers Club, Ernie was Past President of the Ontario Chapter SDC and the Founder and Past President of the Ontario Chapter SDC. Ernie was a man of much knowledge and possessed a variety of skills and talents, particularly as they related to his Studebaker vehicles.

    He will be terribly missed by Joan, his beloved wife and best friend of 56 years. Ernie was diagnosed with lung cancer in March of this year and also suffered from diabetes. Fortunately I had the opportunity to talk to Ernie in late May and he was totally upbeat about his illness.

    Visitation is at the Cattell, Eaton & Chambers Funeral Home, 53 Main Street, Dundas, Ontario on Thursday July 9th from 2 to 4 pm and 6 to 8 pm. A celebration of Ernie's life will be held at the funeral home on Friday July 10th at 11 am. Cremation has taken place.

    In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Lung Association or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated by the family.
