Ernie was born in Chicago in 1945 and was raised in Arlington Heights, IL. He attended Arlington High School where he met Marlene, whom he adored throughout their 53 years of marriage.

Ernie liked interacting with people and as such he enjoyed a lifelong career in sales. He was a good athlete and enjoyed playing golf, softball, basketball and tennis. He was an avid runner for many decades and also enjoyed cheering for the Cubs, Bears and Bulls. His favorite activity of all was spending time with his grandchildren.

Ernie's energy and sense of humor will certainly be missed by all of his family and his many friends.
