Hemmings, Ernest R. "Ernie" - Quincy  
QUINCY -- Ernest R. "Ernie" Hemmings, 88, recently of 2120 Harrison, Quincy, died at 8 p.m. Wednesday (Feb. 25, 2015) at the Good Samaritan Home. Ernie was born Aug. 7, 1926, in Quincy, a son of George Ernest and Ida May Bell Hemmings. He married C. Frances McRae Aug. 3, 1963, in LaGrange, Mo. Ernie's parents moved from Chicago to Quincy and founded Standard Auto Parts in 1923. Born in 1926, Ernie grew up above the storefront, then located at 1040 Hampshire in Quincy. Ernie worked with his parents in the family business through high school until his military service during the Korean War. Upon his return in 1952, he took a more active role in Standard Auto Parts and started selling parts by mail order to collectors of Ford Model T and Model A cars. His mimeographed mail order catalog became Hemmings Motor News in 1954. With help from family and friends, Ernie grew Hemmings Motor News from 500 subscribers in 1954 to nearly 40,000 subscribers in 1969. That year the magazine was purchased by a group led by the late Terry Erich, an old-car enthusiast from Bennington, Vt. Recently celebrating over 60 years in publication, Hemmings Motor News, known as "the bible of the old-car hobby" continues to this day with a global list of subscribers. After the sale of Hemmings Motor News, Ernie continued with Standard Auto Parts at 601 S. 22nd St., selling Ford Model T and Model A parts by mail and at car shows and swap meets throughout the Midwest until he retired in 1988. Ernie was an avid reader, investor and Civil War buff. He enjoyed day trips with his wife, Frances, and spending time with their Cairn terriers, Toto, Bandit and Cindy. Survivors include his wife, C. Frances Hemmings; his son, Trent Hemmings of Sunnyvale, Calif.; two sisters-in-law, Mae McRae and Faye McRae, both of Quincy. Ernie was preceded in death by his parents. SERVICES: 11 a.m. Tuesday, March 3, in Greenmount Cemetery with Chaplain James Riley conducting. VISITATION: 4 to 6 p.m. Monday, March 2, at the Hansen-Spear Funeral Home.
