Ellery Horsman


Ellery Horsman, born August 13, 1949 passed away June 23, 2022.  He is survived by his daughter Cheryl (Daryl), sister Helen, brother John, brother George (Lila), many nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and a handful of great great nieces and nephews.

His early years were enjoyed in Sioux Narrows.  Life took him to Toronto for a few years, then off to Winnipeg but eventually he came back home.

He was known as a fishing guide by many.  Always a story to tell, or maybe even a song to sing while playing his guitar, he enjoyed his life.

Running late for a fishing party or telling you just why he was right may or may not have been a favourite pass time of his.  He made sure fish was caught, and his shore lunches were always delicious, with a finishing touch of flambe.

He spent time playing dice with friends and enjoyed moments on the lake.  He will be sadly missed by family and friends.

No service will be held as cremation has taken place and a private family interment at a later date. 

Donations can be made in Ellery’s memory to the Lake of the Woods District Hospital Foundation – Palliative Care.
