Pleasant. He also built race cars and sponsored many racers. Ernie worked for Mid Michigan Security Systems for several years. He proudly farmed the family homestead for the past 40 years. Ernie was an extremely talented mechanic and loved helping anyone he could with car troubles. He loved to spoil his grandchildren and always looked forward to time spent with them. Ernie and Irene always worked together at preparing the holiday dinners for the family. He was a member of the Winn United Methodist Church.
