The staff of Pro Action of Steuben and Yates were so sorry to hear of Ernie's passing. He was a great man who made us laugh everyday. We enjoyed his stories and his sense of humor. He was a man of great character with a big heart. Pro Action sends our deepest sympathies to your family.

Celebrating a life well lived. We will cherish the memories forever.
