One Condolence
  1. I worked with Ernie for many years at Quaker Maid. He was a hard working sincere individual and I feel fortunate to have known him! Also his dry sense of humor always brought a smile to my face.
    The QMM family will miss him and remember his strong work ethic and can do attitude.
    Condolences to his family
