Eric Kernachan

Our dear Eric lost his struggle with depression on April 10, 2016.  Left to grieve are his parents Rob and Nancy, his brother Rob and fiancee Janie and Darren, his girls Shannon, Bethany, and Jayden Thompson, his sweet little Olive, his grandparents Cliff and Janet Browne, his aunts and uncles Dan and Janet Kernachan, Linda and Keith Shillito, Lyn and Brian Irvine, Susan Rochon, Patrick and Jennette Browne, his cousins Matt & Barrett, Dave & Juliane, Dugie & Jenn, Robyn & Nathan, Kevin, Jennifer & Brenden, Cliff & Michelle, Karen, and Becky, and his farm family at Porter’s Dairy.

Eric also left behind a huge circle of friends who loved and enjoyed him so much. They all supported each other through good times and bad, and continue to do so for us now.

Among Eric’s many joys were dirtbiking up the mountain with his brother and buddies, listening to Alice in Chains, working on the farm, and making all of us laugh.

We are so devastated that he couldn’t see his way through his illness at the end, but we feel he has made it to where he needed to be.

Please consider a donation in Eric’s memory to the Rick Rypien Foundation (RickyRyp) or the Canadian Mental Health Association (

Please join Eric’s family at 1:00 PM on Saturday, July 16, 2016 to pay tribute to Eric’s life at H. W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road, Duncan, BC.

Love you Eric
