Born on August 1st, 1969 in Richmond, VA, Ernest was a loving father and grandfather. Family always came first to him. He loved fishing and the outdoors and his favorite place to go was Gloucester Point. He would go and spend the whole day there by the water. He will always be remembered for his selflessness and his wanting to make sure everyone around him was taken care of. He welcomed so many people into his home and treated all of the neighborhood kids like his own. He was a great man that never judged a soul. He will be greatly missed.
