  1. Ernie was a great man and friend. All though I’ll never reach his skill level, it was Ernie that got me interested in woodworking again. I just wish we had more time on this earth to finish more lessons. He was an awesome plumber as well. He did what nobody else could and got our kitchen drain working right again for the first time in many years. My thoughts and prayers go out to Edna and all his family. R.I.P. Ernie, I’ll see ya on the other side.
