BOUYOUCAS, Ernest John

Ernest John Bouyoucas, lovingly known as Ernie, age 70, of Palm Springs, Florida, was taken by the hand and led to the Gates of Heaven on February 13, 2014 by his late father, Father Emmanuel Bouyoucas and his late mother, Helen Bouyoucas. Ernie moved to the West Palm Beach area in 1978 after serving as an investigator for 10 years with the City of Baltimore, Maryland Crime Scene Investigation Department. Shortly thereafter, Ernie went to work for Pratt-Whitney in Jupiter, Florida as a Chemist and worked there for 10 years. Later Ernie changed his vocation and became a Substitute Teacher with the Palm Beach County School System and worked as he was called to show up at different educational centers. Ernie was a member of the Palm Beach Coin Club and had a vast collection of his own rare coins. He also was a member of the Gold Coast Treasure Club and loved spending sunny days trying to discover and unearth rare buried treasures and finds. Some of his other hobbies were bowling, shooting pool, photography, scuba diving and he was also a gun enthusiast. His other loves were going on various gambling venues throughout the United States and traveling with his wife, Sharon on Cruise Ships and Jet Setting by air to various countries internationally and stateside. Some of his more memorable trips included the New England Cruise, the Alaskan Cruise and Carribean Ports of Call. Ernie was a lovable guy and loved to tell jokes to break the ice with friends and family, as well as being a great conversationalist on various subjects under the sun. His wit, wisdom, charm and great personality made him an all around sport to be with for any occasion. Ernie was the son of one of the visionary and pioneer people of West Palm Beach, Father Emmanual Bouyoucas. His father was a Pastoral Priest who was instrumental in building the Church Hall for St. Catherine Greek Orthodox Church in West Palm Beach; which is used every year to celebrate the Greek Festival and many other church functions throughout the year. Ernie leaves to forever honor and cherish his memory, his loving and devoted wife, Sharon Bouyoucas, of Palm Springs, Florida; his two loved children, Nicholas Bouyoucas and his wife, Demetra of Jupiter, Florida and Gregory Bouyoucas and his wife, Jan Marie of Melbourne, Florida; his two adored step-children, Amy Noble and her husband, Steven of Ashburn, Virginia and Alan Simkaitis and his wife, Jacqueline of Royal Palm Beach, Florida; and his seven treasured grandchildren.
