Eric Moke

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Eric Moke on Thursday, June 1, 2023, at the Cornwall Community Hospital, age 88. Eric was born April 18, 1935, in Osnabruck Township to Elva May (Baker) Moke and David Edward Moke. He went to school at SS #16 and Avonmore High School. Eric worked on the home farm for four years and then at Courtaulds Canada Ltd. for 37 years. He was a faithful member of Osnabruck Baptist Church and First Baptist Church in Cornwall where he served on various boards. He married Edith Dixon on June 15, 1963. Loved father of Edward “Ted” (Susan) and Janet (Jean-Pierre Roger) and grandfather of Robyn, Sydney, Madison and Jacob, and three step-grandsons. Jakob, Joshua and Jonah. He will be sadly missed by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Predeceased by his parents and infant sister Iris Mae and infant brother Earl Edward. After his retirement from Courtaulds Eric became a handy man for several years, as well as a Meals on Wheels volunteer with Edith, delivering meals to those in need for 20 years. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations can be made to First Baptist Church or the charity of your choice, and would be appreciated by the family. We would like to thank the staff at both Advent Health in Sebring, Florida and Cornwall Community Hospital for their excellent care and compassion for Eric.
