Joseph Earnest (Ernie) Arsenault, a lifelong Standardbred industry participant, passed away on Friday, March 17 at the age of 71.
Originally from PEI, Arsenault and his family travelled all across Canada racing horses. Ernie was the reinsman in the training cart as well as the race bike, and he also did all the blacksmith work. He retired in Summerside, where he resided at the time of passing. He was always a huge fan of harness racing, watching from Red Shores Summerside and Charlottetown.
Survived by wife Millie, brothers Erskine (Betty), Glen (Glenda), Kevin (Mary Anne) and sister Vicky; children Mike, Paul (Brenda) Lori (Darren) Andy (Teresa) and Angie; grandchildren Thomas, Alysha, Melanie, Austin, Ryan, Emileen and Carter. He will be missed and forever loved.
There will be no public service.
