Errol Douglas Hopey

July 15, 1944 ~ May 20, 2022 (age 77)


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Errol Douglas Hopey on May 20, 2022 at the Saint John Regional Hospital. He is survived by his wife, Shirley (Johnson); daughter, Sherry; sister, Deanna as well as several nieces and nephews.  He was predeceased by his parents, Harry and Dorothy (Wilson) Hopey; and his brother, Donald. 

Errol met Shirley by way of Gordie McKillop, and they married on July 16, 1966.  They have been married for 56 years.  They had their daughter, Sherry, in 1969 and she was the apple of her dad’s eye.  Errol worked at Paramount Theatre for several years as a Projectionist.  Errol retired in 1990 from Saint John City Works after 33 years.  In his retirement, Errol enjoyed spending time with Shirley and Sherry, taking drives around the province.  He especially enjoyed their drives to Saint Andrews.  Errol enjoyed fishing, his vegetable garden that he shared his produce with others, and Nascar races, especially watching Kyle Busch. 

Errol enjoyed the simple things in life.  He always kept a clean vehicle, always washing and waxing it- his nickname around his home was “Mr. Clean”.  He was always proud of his clean vehicles. 

Arrangements are entrusted to Fundy Funeral Home, 230 Westmorland Road (646-2424). A Celebration of Errol’s life will take place on Wednesday, May 25, 2022 at 1pm from the Fundy Funeral Home Chapel with interment to follow in Brown’s Cemetery, Bains Corner.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Errol’s memory can be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.
