WAENGLER, Ernst "Ernest" G., Dr. Iur (Feb. 12, 1917-June 26, On Sunday, June 26, 2005 in his 89th year. After enjoying a Bloody Caesar and lunch at home while awaiting a visit from old Friends his heart simply stopped. Immediate attempts by his caregiver and paramedics failed to revive him. His wife Sheila was at his side, his lover of fiftyfour years. The son of Dr. Fritz and Edith WAENGLER, he was born in Vienna, Austria February 12, 1917. He attended the Schotten Gymnasium where classmates recalled he was the tallest in the class, the worst in gymnastics and the funniest. In the spring of 1939 upon receiving a Dr. of Laws Degree from Vienna University with his call up for the German army he surreptitiously left for Paris and London. In 1940 with the enemy at the door the British Interned all 'enemy aliens' whether they were a threat or not and Ernst was rounded up and shipped to the Isle of Man and then to Canada. Among the Internees was Crown Prince Friedrich of Prussia and the former chef of the Ritz in London. So the internees ate royally on army rations. In 1941 they were released in Canada where he has lived ever since. He did panel shows on Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, wrote original scripts and English adaptations of German language scripts. He also did drama reviews for the Globe and Mail and tried his hand at directing which is where he met his future wife, Sheila CRAIG who was an actress. He also wrote for MacLeans, the Telegram and economic articles for the Financial Post. From 1981 to 1996 he was the Canadian Correspondent for the Neue Zuercher Zeitung based in Zurich writing Economic and political Analyses. During this time he traveled, often with his wife to some 65 countries as a foreign corespondent. He leaves his sister Ina and her husband Dipl.
