Ernest J. “Ernie” Rehling, age 76, of Coshocton Ave., Mount Vernon, passed away on Saturday, November 21, 2015 at the Laurels of Mount Vernon. He was born on May 24, 1939 in Mount Vernon, Ohio, the son of Ernest L. and Evelyn (Schwartz) Rehling. Ernie was a 1957 graduate of Mount Vernon High School.

Ernie was a previous member of the Elks Lodge and Colonial City Moose Lodge and was a head coach and manager of his children’s Little League teams at Phillips Park.
Ernie was an avid golfer and he enjoyed outdoor photography. He was a soft hearted, loving man that will be missed by many, but we can all cherish that crooked smile or ornery laugh.
