In Penticton BC hospital on Saturday morning Nov. 12, 2022 from complications of Lewy Body Dementia and Parkinson's disease. Husband of Karen (nee MacDonald) Ernewein and father of three daughters: Rachelle, Renee and Rebecca; all in Penticton. Son of Leo (Bud) Ernewein and the late Doris Ernewein of Woodstock ON; and brother of Larry Ernewein (Innerkip ON), Linda McNaught (London ON), Mike Ernewein (Delaware ON), Joe Ernewein (Canmore AB), and Julie Cole (Water Valley AB).

Dan left the family home in Woodstock - after playing baseball for several years - and joined the Canadian Armed Forces. As often occurred back then, Dan requested to be stationed anywhere but Winnipeg, and in any of the forces except the infantry, and was duly posted to the PPCLI in Winnipeg! One highlight of his army career was being sent to Egypt as part of the United Nations peacekeeping force during the Suez crisis. He retired from the force in Prince George BC - where he met and married Karen in 1984 - and joined Canada Post, retiring in 2008. In Prince George he was a respected member of the competitive fastball (a feared pitcher) and tennis communities. Gently ageing out of competitive sports, he began to excel in curling and golf. Dan also enjoyed fishing, skiing, playing music and spending time with his girls (and their many cats!). The entire family subsequently moved to Penticton where he continued playing golf.

Rest In Peace Dan.
