He loved to camp, especially in Colorado. He spent most of his retirement golfing with his son-in-law and his friends and spending time with his family.
The apple of his eye was his granddaughter, Brooke, with whom he enjoyed getting into mischief with. They spent many days shopping, going out to lunch and just enjoying each other’s company.
Ernie was adored and loved by all of those who knew him. He was quick with a smile and made many friends while working in the food industry for 40+ years.
He will be greatly missed, especially by his immediate family. We love you, Papa!!
