MINOGUE, Eric Burns

It is with heavy hearts our family announces the passing of Eric Burns Minogue, 91 years young.

He left us peacefully the evening of April 18, 2020 with his loving wife Marlene holding his hand.

Adored father of Sherry (Sam), Tammi (Larry) and Julie (Jonathan). Cherished Papa to Casey, Sonya, Lacey, Maya, and Jacob. Great Grandpa to Jasmine, Cheyenne, Ryan, Ethan, Erica, and Jared. Sadly, missed by sisters-in-law Verna Minogue and Janet Connor, brother-in-law Ken Moore, several nieces and nephews, and Eric’s 4-legged sidekick “Molly”.

Eric served the Canadian Armed Forces, Korean War, 1950-1952. He worked 39 years at Domtar Quarry, Beachville. He was blessed to enjoy 33 years of retirement. He was a “Jack of all trades”, demonstrating his skills by building three of their homes. Eric enjoyed volunteering at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, golfing, bowling, gardening, and spending hours on his John Deere tractor, and always with his dog Molly.

Many Thanks to Dr. Bruce and staff, Alexandra Hospital and especially the nurses and care givers at Caressant Care Woodstock for their compassion, devotion, and care.

Cremation has taken place. Celebration of Life will be held later.

Donations to St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church Ingersoll, Alzheimer’s Society, VON Oxford would be appreciated.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to the McBeath-Dynes Funeral Home 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll 519-425-1600.

Marlene and Family, you have my heartfelt sympathy in the loss of a very special person, husband, father and grandfather. I have many good memories of our visits and especially the weekly Saturday morning breakfasts together with Eric, Marlene and your brother Ken. Eric was always a creative, cheerful, happy and gentle soul. A joy to know!

On behalf the Higgins Family- Tim, Gail, Curtis, Kyle, Amy, Colin. we send our deepest condolences to Marlene and the girls. It was always a highlight to stop in at your house with my mom and hear Eric and Audrey talking and laughing about all the good times the experience throughout their lives. Going to miss hearing those stories the way they would tell them. Two favourite scriptures that Eric‘s sister Audrey held dear to her heart are found at Jeremiah 29: 10 and 11 ( “a future and a hope “) as well as the hope being identified at John 5: 28 and 29 . Those two scriptures keep me going and I hope they will mean as much to you as they do to us.
Warmest love from the Higgins family to yours.

Marilyn and Wayne Wright and Family
