Ernie was a graduate of Lansingburgh High School Class of 1948.
After graduating high school, Ernie began working at Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation as a Meter Reader and continued a rewarding career of opportunities and job promotions until he became Supervisor of High Voltage Substations for the Capital District. He and his team, nicknamed The Silent Seven, were sent all over the System on huge projects that overwhelmed the local operations. He retired after completing 42 and a half years of service.
He was a veteran of the U.S. Navy serving in the Korean War. Ernie enlisted in the Naval Reserve at the Naval Center in Troy. He served on the USS Quincy in the Engineering Force from 1952-1954. He shared fond memories from his service and often said “where else would I have learned so much and saw the world.” He was privileged to participate in a Patriot Honor flight to Washington DC in 2019.
He was preceded in death by his first wife, Ann and his son Ronald.
He is survived by his wife, Nancy; father of Debbie (Sandy), David, Kathy (Scott) and Kristin (Andy); his grandchildren Becky (James), Tony (Stephanie), Matt (Phoebe), Sean, Hallie, Jessica, Troy, James and Lily; and 6 great grandchildren.
Ernie and his wife, Ann, and their four children enjoyed 30 years of seasonal camping at Minerva Lake. After Ann’s passing, he married Nancy and gained a daughter, Kristin (Andy). Ernie and Nancy enjoyed a lifetime of love, travel and adventures in their 21 years together.
