Ernie adored children and coached his boys in Little League before becoming the President of Granville Little for 46 years. He was recently honored with a plaque and sign commemorating his years of service to the program. The children will fondly remember him riding around visiting each field’s games each night on the golf cart, and they won’t ever see a Swedish fish without thinking of him. This was a treat he always had on hand, passing them out throughout the park. Ernie loved his baseball and cheered on his beloved Yankees every game. He was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather and just enjoyed his family. He enjoyed trips to Maine, Hampton Beach and most recently an outing to the Saratoga Harness Track.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 60 years, Nancy (Crouch), daughter April, sons Ernest Jr. (Crystal) and Aron (Heather) He was blessed with three grandchildren: Hunter, Hannah and Holton.
