In memory of Ernie Hill.
1939 - 2014

Ernie1Ernie2It is with a great deal of  sadness we announce the passing of one of our charter members and mentors. We will always remember his very warm smile and easy way of guiding us to become better carvers. His encouraging and uplifting words helped us become better than we thought were. He always had more confidence in our abilities and could see how to make us better.


Ernie3Ernie4In his memory and in support of his wife and fellow member, Iris, we attended his wake and funeral. The CWCA and Mystic Woodcarvers were well represented and we reminisced on the wonderful memories he gave us. As requested by the family in his obituary, we will be taking up a collection during the May meeting to make a donation to the Lustgarten Foundation (a pancreatic cancer research foundation). If you would like to make your own donation, please contact them at or to CT Hospice, 100 Double Beach Road, Branford, CT.
