Birth: Oct. 14, 1917
Hawaii, USA
Death: Apr. 21, 1942
Maui County
Hawaii, USA

Earnest De Coite worked on the railroad as a brakeman in the sugarcane plantation in Paia, Maui, Hawaii. One day as he was switchin the rails, he got his leg caught in the rail and had to have it amputated. He never returned to work. He became depressed and withdrawn. He was married to Mabel but the marriage did not work out. In the 1940 Federal Census it states that he was 22 years old and Mabel was only 17 years old. It was all too much for him. He did not take care of himself and finally died from it all. They did not have any children. Sad story..

He had an eighth grade education..
