Ervin met Alice at a snack bar in Glenwood in 1966, it was love at first sight. Ervin and Alice were married August 17, 1968. Ervin worked in Churchill falls for a short time before he moved to Labrador City to start his career at the Iron Ore Company of Canada in 1972 as a Heavy Equipment mechanic. They had two sons Dion and Robin, and lived a beautiful life in Labrador before returning to Glenwood when he retired in October 1999. Ervin will be remembered for being a good man, a hard worker and for his witty sense of humour. He loved his music, having a dance with Alice and enjoyed his daily walks around his community.
