Ernest was a wonderful family man and a great provider for them. His greatest joy was having all of his family home with him. Ernest was a proud United States Army veteran serving as a Corporal during the Korean War. He was a member of the New Lenox VFW Post #9545 and enjoyed spending time there. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Ernest’s name to the New Lenox VFW Post #9545 would be appreciated.
A celebration of Ernest’s life was held privately at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery in Elwood.
