  1. Ermie, not sure if I ever met your dad but as you know, I know a lot of the other parts of the family. Sorry for your loss brother. If there’s anything Tina and I can do just let us know. Won’t be able to make it to the funeral due to work but my thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  2. I’m very sorry to here that Ernie has passed. He was my dads “partner in crime” for a short while when my dad, Bill Zuzanek was his roommate at Grace. May God comfort you all at this difficult time.

  3. My condolences to friends and family of Ernie. I met Ernie at a yard sale he hosted years ago on River Heights Drive, discovered we’d worked in the same factory for a while but hadn’t met, and discovered we had a mutual friend named Jay who was also at the sale. Years later, when I purchased that same piece of property, Ernie was very kind in helping me to locate buried wire and other points of interest on the property.

  4. Barb we are sorry for your loss of Ernie here. John n I know you will again be with him in our heavenly home. What joy that will be.
    We miss you both. Be blessed our friend and sister in Christ!

    • Barbie, a sad time but a rejoicing time because of Jesus. He is free from the troubles and chains of this world. And a reunion is coming one day. So glad you could be with him when he went home. Love & prayers.

    • Barb, I am sorry for your loss I have memories of traveling with you and Ernie to Wisconsin to grandma Tenjum’s funeral. I send you my sympathy and prayers in your loss, our Lord will heal your aching heart. I’m sorry I don’t do well with keeping up with everyone.

  5. My sincerest condolences to you my dear Aunt Barb, and my cousins Ernie jr., David, and Bobby. Some of my happiest moments were spent with you all. God bless you and keep you in his loving arms. Every time I saw you guys Uncle Ernie’s was the first one to run up to me and pick me up and swing me around and hug me.
