Ernest "Ernie" Poulsen died peacefully at home and surrounded by loving family and
caregivers on April 18, 2013. He was 62 years old . Ernie had been in Sonoma since
2005 and enjoyed very much the natural beauty of our Sonoma Valley.

He was born in 1950 in Chico to Dr. and Mrs. T.S. Poulsen of Orland, Calif. He
was one of 6 children and is predeceased by his father, Dr. T.S. Poulsen, his
mother, Vilate Poulsen and his brother, Duard Poulsen.

Ernie graduated from Orland High School in 1968 and attended Butte College. He managed his family ranch near Orland for many years, after which he worked in the mining and geotechnical industries in Nevada. Ernie traversed, hiked, climbed and otherwise explored many areas of Nevada, which he loved.

He was a licensed Ham Radio Operator, and also certified in commercial salvage diving.
Ernie was one of the early enthusiasts of hang gliding, back in the day. He enjoyed hang gliding off of Mt. Rose in Nevada and also land sailing with friends on the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. He was truly a man who lived his life on his own terms and danced to his own beat. He was immediately liked by all who met him.

Ernie is survived by his sister Michelle (Sal) Versaggi of Sonoma; brother, Craig (Karen) Poulsen of Half Moon Bay; brother, Jim (Lynnette) Poulsen of Santa Clara Utah; and sister, Karen (Jim) Zelenka of Twin Falls, Idaho. He is also survived by many nieces and nephews. Arrangements by Duggans Mission Chapel.

A funeral service and internment will be on April 30, 2013 in Paris, Idaho. A Celebration of Life is being planned for a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be sent to the Lewy Body Dementia
Association (Lbda.Org).
