Ervin Falk Obituary

(As written in his own hand)

Born:   January 2, 1944

Parents:           Henry & Margaret Falk

Birthplace:       Abbotsford, BC

Resided:          Arnold, BC

 

At 6 months old I got double pneumonia, By God’s grace I recovered.  I went to Upper Sumas School form grade 1,4,5,6. For grades 2 and 3 I attended Arnold Elementary School.  From grade 7-11 I attended MEI.  We had an awesome youth group at Arnold Church.  I received Jesus into my heart at a young age and was baptised in my early teens.  Then in 1966 I moved to Clearbrook BC.

I worked for Selwood Industries for 7 years. Company moved to Vancouver so I went to work for Cassiar Asbestos for a few years. Then got a better job offer in Port Hardy, BC.   After a few years came back to Abbotsford, Shortly thereafter

I got my dream job.  I went to work at Vedder Transport driving semi trucks.  I had a wonderful boss and job. In 1977 I married Marilynn Dyck Toews.  She had two great daughters (Carrie and Debbie). For personal reasons  we moved to Alberta in 1978 .Eleven years later we moved back to Abbotsford.   I once again returned to work for Vedder Transport.   At 70 years of age I retired.  And I started to work for Fraserway RV shuttling motorhomes around, I really enjoyed doing that.  Four years ago I was diagnosed with MDS – a form of Leukemia.  All was going well but about a year in I had to start taking Chemotherapy . It helped me a lot for about a year then no longer was doing the job. So we decided to stop.

Then I started having blood transfusions regularly every week. Rarely missed a week.  I had a very good support system with my wife and daughters and their families, also with my extended families.  I felt very blessed and loved. During this season of my journey God was very present.
