    Ernie worked as a subcontractor painting homes for my business when I was a contractor. He was such a thoughtful, mellow person. No doubt Ernie has left this earth a tad darker without his shining presence here. My deepest condolences are with his friends and family during this time of loss. Please hold tightly to the sweetest memories you have of him when grief starts to rise up. I’m certain there are many given what a kind soul he was.

  • A Sister Posted January 16, 2020 12:41 am

    Our family cannot thank everyone enough for all the love, prayers and support during this time in our life that has been truly difficult. Ernie was loved by so many. A soul that few has. We will miss you dearly sweet brother. Love, love my brother! Till we meet again, my brother.

  • Joe Hottman Posted January 16, 2020 7:13 am

It was good coming on here & seeing some of the old MX family talking great of you. You were loved by many. I haven’t been able to go onto FB. I can only imagine the love you are getting there. Continue watching over all of Your family & friends. of family and friends. BTW, you probably saw the entire family went to Hilliard for the Annual Father’s Day race. I hope God has MX tracks. Looking forward to riding with you. I love you forever & ever no matter what! Till we meet again Lil’ Brother. ❤️
