In August 1984, Ernie met the love of his life, Melody Kaye Warren and September 29, 1984, one month after their first date, the couple were wed. The family will celebrate 33 years of marriage Friday, September 29. Ernie was a devoted husband and loving father to his three children. Ernie was a quiet man, but his presence would fill the room when he walked in. He would help anyone in need and loved to ride and work on motorcycles. Over the course of his life, Ernie owned over 145 motorcycles. He was a Maintenance engineer for most of his life until he retired in 2015.
