Died peacefully on Sunday, September 11th at the Sunrise in Beaconsfield. Erwin was preceded in death by his dear wife Anne in a marriage of 66 years. Erwin is survived by his three sons Richard (Christine Schwenger), Ronald (Aileen Grogan) and Robert (Arlene Pinard), his beloved grandchildren Jessica, Kathleen (Riad Daher), Karl, Ryan, Ashley, Amanda, Melanie and Pamela, great-grandson Zayn and great-granddaughter Zahra.
After arriving in Canada in 1949 Erwin began his career in the electrical field with H. R. Cassidy. In 1967 he started Kingston Electric in LaSalle, and in 1984 he started the Penta-Schroder Electric family business. Erwin was a well respected business man. He was honest, tough and straightforward, and his work was his passion. Outside of work he was a warden for a number of years at Resurrection of Our Lord parish in Lachine and was involved in the Lachine Senior Men’s Soccer Association. Erwin also loved playing cards with family and friends.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to all the staff in the Reminiscence section of the Sunrise in Beaconsfield who provided such great care to Erwin for the past three years. He adored all of you.
Anyone wishing to pay respects to the family are invited to a visitation and reception on Saturday October 22nd, at the Belvedere Funeral Complex at 22025 Trans-Canada Hwy in Senneville from 1 pm to 4 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, in memoriam donations to the Alzheimer Society of Canada or to the charity of one’s choice would be appreciated.
