It is with great sadness that we inform you of the death of Ernest Taylor, a member of our Volunteers@Sea team. Ernie passed away on Sunday 18th May 2014 at the age of 87. His daughter Marion informed us of his passing a few days later. We were truly shocked and saddened to receive such sad news.
Ernie, his wife Edna and their daughter Marion had supported Dream Designs Colchester for a number of years. Together they helped to present drawings aboard P&O Cruises’ Aurora, Oceana, Arcadia and Azura.
A funeral service was held on Thursday 12th June 2014. We wanted to say goodbye and thank Ernie for his support and encouragement. We hope that you will join us in sending your thoughts to Ernie’s wife and family.
Below are some photographs to remember Ernie by.
