After his honorable discharge from the U.S. Navy, he enjoyed a long career as a Manager of Engineering. Ernie loved spending time with family and friends. He felt closest to God in the outdoors fishing, golfing and walking in the woods. Playing bridge was a challenging past-time that fostered life-long friendships. He was proud to be American and loved helping others.
