Family and friends remember Ernie as a man with a giant heart whose true passion was his family and grandchildren. He loved to tell stories and lived out his faith as a member and Deacon at Hickory Grove United Baptist Church. He leaves a legacy of love, loyalty, generosity, selflessness, and a little bit of ornery-ness to those who knew him. He had formerly worked at Tech International as a Maintenance Supervisor where he retired after 42 years. As a member of the Sunbury Conservation Club, he enjoyed trap and sporting clay shooting, hunting, gardening, yardwork, and golfing in the Tech Rubber Golf League.

(Cantrell) Cordle; daughters and sons-in-law, Wilma and Bill Thompson of Louisa, KY, Jeannie and Fred Blevins of Sunbury, Mary White and Brenda Cordle both of Westerville, Teresa and Phil Stephens of Johnstown; sister, Neva (Frank) Walker; brothers, Bert (Lois) Cordle and Ronnie (Wanda) Cordle; 12 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, 4 great-great-grandchildren.
