To Ernie's family,

Your father was an amazing individual, he was so full of life and always talked about his family and all of the fishing and camping trips taken in his younger years. it was evident he enjoyed socializing, playing cards, tinkering with mechanical things (electric mouse trap), and of course square dancing. I always looked forward to the shuttle van rides to work and visiting with him. i will truly miss him even though I only knew him as "Ernie". You have my sympathy. Take care and God bless.

So sorry to hear about Ernie's passing. We had many fun evenings squaredancing to Ernie's calling at the Levis and lace Club of Morgan and other clubs in the area. He was always ready with a yellow rock (hug). We want to extend our deepest sympathies to the family. We are unable to attend the services. Out thoughts and prayers are with you today.
