Sydney

With sadness, we announce the passing of Ernest Archibald “Archie” Hillier, on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at Harbourstone Enhanced Care, Sydney.

Born July 5, 1930, in Sydney, he was the son of the late Archibald and Mary Jane (Slaney) Hillier.

Ernie was a member of the former Sacred Heart Parish, Sydney. In earlier years, he worked at JW Stephen’s Lumber and L.E. Shaw Ltd. For five years, he served with the Cape Breton Highlanders Army Reserve, followed by three years in active army duty, serving two years in Germany, Carleton and York Regiment.  He was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch 138, Ashby.  After many years working in building construction and as past president of the Labourers Union 1115, he started operation of a convenience store known as, Archie’s Dairy on Mira Road. On their retirement, Ernie and his wife, Aggie travelled extensively to England, Ireland, Florida, Nashville and Western Canada.

Ernie is survived by his sons, Donald (Gail) and Charlie; grandson, Jamie; great-grandsons, Mark, Keigan and Aiden; and sister, Theresa Musgrave.

Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Mary Agnes “Aggie” (Ryan) in 2016; sister, Viola in 1942; and brother, William “Bill” in 2008.

A sincere thank you to the amazing staff of Mira Bay at Harbourstone Enhanced Care for the wonderful and compassionate care provided to Ernie.
