Ernie served as a machinist in the U. S. Navy from 1944 to 1946, during World War II. He worked at Stanford Engineering in Salem for many years prior to his retirement.

Ernie and Thelma lived in Mt. Vernon until they retired in 1982. They spent their retirement years in Ft. Myers, Fla. Ernie lived in Ft. Myers until January 2013, when he moved to Springfield, Mo., with his daughter and son-in-law.

His faith in God was an integral part of his life and has always been evident to all those around him. He was a deacon for many years at East Salem Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon. They later joined the Second Baptist Church in Mt. Vernon. In Florida, he was a member of Cypress Lake Baptist Church. Ernie sang in the choir at all three churches. His daughter always said they were at church every time the doors were open – and also when they were not open – to mow and trim and do whatever maintenance was needed outside.
