    I knew Ernie from Classic Billiards. I didn’t really play, I just enjoyed the company. I moved to TX in 1996 and I was always homesick for the stories and conversations. I remember one night when Ernie and three other guys “kidnapped” me to see a midnight movie. I’d planned on paying for myself, but they wouldn’t let me. Ernie bought my popcorn. He was a true gentlemen and I will miss him even more now. He’s going to make an awesome guardian angel! My condolences to Ernie’s family. ❤

In the 50.s 60.s 70.s and 80.s Ernie was one of the best pool players in N.Y. state, competing with the likes of Irving Crane , Mike Sigel, and Larry Hubbard . Thank you for sharing your pool knowledge with me over the years. Rest in peace my good friend, May God always watch over you.
