Obituary of Erling James Talbot Armson


ARMSON, Erling James Talbot 


1956 – 2021


It is with much sadness that his family announces the sudden passing at his home in Kingston on Saturday April 10.  He was predeceased by his mother Harriett Armson (nee Coltham). Taken away much too soon from his wife Patricia, and children, Miranda (Mitchell Smith) and Matthew and his father Kenneth Armson.


Erling grew up in Toronto and attended the University of Guelph where he graduated in wildlife biology.  He was well known in his career as a biologist with Ducks Unlimited Ontario based in their Kingston office. He was a respected Conservation Enthusiast. He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman and also an active member of the Kingston Tennis Club.


Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Erling’s life will be held once COVID restrictions ease.
