  1. Here’s to my “Sheeny Man”. You will be greatly missed Ernie, we all loved you at Refrigeration Equipment. My thoughts and prayers are with your family


  2. Ernie was a true friend to us at Double J Meats. Although Ernie’s initial association with the store was business with an older generation, his kind demeanor and obvious heart kindled a friendship that spanned the ages. We shall miss his company and countless stories of times gone by. Ernie’s strength through tough times was a tribute to his character and an inspiration to us all. Our condolences go out to the family of whom we heard proud stories of a father, grandfather and uncle. We’ll carry on ‘in the pink’ thinking of you Ernie.
