Ernie was a social person and loved to talk. He loved being a truck driver and retired from Beaumont Concrete Co. He loved his cars and kept them all meticulously clean. He enjoyed his family get-togethers, playing horseshoes, going to the boys baseball games, Saturday morning menudo, phone calls with his kids, getting his points and hanging out in his recliner visiting. He was a "directional expert" and didn't pass up any opportunity to help you find your way and "oh,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh,oh" is a cherished memory for all. Until we meet again your memory will forever be in our hearts.
