It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Ernsting, age 51, on Sunday, March 28, 2021.
Eric was born May 5th, 1969 in Port Arthur, Ontario, Canada. He graduated from Hammarskjold High school followed by a career at Synergy North (Thunder Bay Hydro) as a Power Line Technician. He was so devoted to his job and his fellow co-workers felt like family to him. He will be missed by them all.
He was loved by so many friends and his family. Eric was the first person to help with any type of home renovation, car repair and was always available to trouble-shoot and help family and friends in need. Eric, his father Ingo and his brother Ryan would often work together repairing equipment and vehicles and he was brilliant at finding solutions and loved working hand-in-hand with his family.
Eric also loved his outdoor sport. Eric could be found at the track during summer months taking his son Andrew dirt biking and was so proud of Andrew’s success within the Superior Dirt Riders Club. He was sometimes known to ride himself and also enjoyed snowmobiling, fishing, and other outdoor activities.
Eric was happiest spending time at his family camp at Hawkeye Lake. Sitting still was hard for him – so there was always something to fix at Hawkeye. He loved tinkering, repairing, and making the family camp a home for everyone. Eric was happiest watching Andrew play at camp, and then spending time at the end of the day with everyone in and out of the sauna.
Eric had a friendly demeanor, and incredible heart. He touched so many people’s lives along his journey of life that his absence is and will be felt by so many.
He will be sadly missed by his son Andrew Ernsting, parents Helga and Ingo Ernsting, brother Ryan Ernsting, sister Suzanne Christie (George), niece and nephew, Taryn and Matthew Christie, nieces Jayda and Andra Ernsting, mother of Eric’s son Andrew, Sherry Blasizzo and her children, Bryanna and Kiara Blasizzo.
Due to restrictions, a service will not be held at this time, however a celebration of Eric’s life will be held at a later date. Online condolences may be made at

I am very saddened to hear of Eric's passing. I met Eric on his first days at Thunder Bay Hydro when he ended up on my crew. I found him to be a very caring and genuine person as well as being a very dedicated and valuable crew member. Eric's passing is a huge loss. My deepest condolences to Eric's family. Sincerely, Ken Telpuk
