Ernie, as he was known by his family, went to several primary, elementary, and high schools and graduated Mainland High School in Daytona Beach, Florida in 1972. Immediately, following his graduation he joined the United States Army where he served for seven years in the Signal Corps. Ernie spoke often of his service in the Army, where he served in Viet Nam, Germany and in the United States. A proud veteran, he was always a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars wherever he lived and worked after he was honorably discharged from the Army in 1979. However, he is most notably remembered for his work in the VFW Post 426 in Westminster, MD where he served for many years.
