After the family sold the quarry Ernest worked at the Cripple Creek & Victor Gold Mine until he retired.

Verry Sorry to hear about Ernie passing away, he was a very good and honest man. I have a fond memory of hauling the John Deer loader for him when I worked for Sabatino Excavating. May GOD Bless you all with your loss.
