January 21, 1941 – August 2, 2022 (age 81)


It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ernest “Ernie” George Weimer. Ernie passed peacefully after his third gallant fight with cancer, on August 2, 2022.

Ernie was the beloved husband of Lillian Weimer (née Reschny) for 59 years; father to Melody Weimer, Tamye (Blair) Miller, Patty (Orrin) Chorneyko, Murray Weimer, Ian (Heather) Weimer, Jason Weimer, and Shane (Angela) Weimer; grandfather to Melissa Weimer (Alain Carrier), Taylor (Stéphane) Taillon, Amanda (Reagan) King, Roman, Annaka and Michael Chorneyko, Megan and Matthew Weimer, Hannah, Tekarra and Josh Weimer, and Andrew and Lucas Weimer; great-grandfather to Ernest (Ernie) and Henrik Carrier, Isaac, Joël and Danielle Taillon, and Gabriel King; brother to Carol (Aloise) Bosch, John (Rose) Weimer, Kasper (Rosemarie) Weimer, and Wilfred Weimer; brother-in-law to Bernice (Bob) Desrosiers, Elmer Reschny, John and Jeannette Reschny, Chuck and Mary Deck, Gary Reschny, Lloyd and Louise Reiniger, Dorothy Kowalyk, Mark and Debbie Reschny, Gilbert and Julia Reschny, and Lyle and Brenda Stang; and uncle and friend to many more. He was predeceased by his grandson, Mitchell Miller; brothers, Albert and Frank Weimer; parents, Lena and Anton Weimer; parents-in-law, Karl and Christine Reschny; brother-in-law, Anthony Reschny; and sister-in-law, Cathy Reschny.

Ernie was born in Leader, Saskatchewan and thereafter resided on the family farm near Fox Valley, Saskatchewan, where he spent his entire life, right up until the end of his days. As a young man, Ernie’s love for baseball, hunting, fishing, and farming was born. Ernie was a dedicated husband, father, coach, mentor, and a passionate farmer. On the mound, he wore lucky #13, and he spent countless hours umping and coaching all forms of ball. On August 20, 2022, Ernie will be inducted into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame.

Ernie was one-of-a-kind and will be missed dearly, but he will be remembered fondly for his dedication to the family farm, his love of hunting and fishing, and his remarkable card playing skills. His friends and family will find comfort reminiscing about the stories and the laughs that were shared, usually while sitting down with a refreshment over a game of cards.

We would like to offer our sincere gratitude to Dr. M. Wong, dad’s family physician, and to the medical professionals who attended to and provided ongoing support and guidance to both dad and our family over the past year. Thank you to all who visited dad over the past number of months.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Canadian Cancer Society,
