anyone else at any time day or night.
Ernie worked for Walmart Distribution Center for over 27 years. He was a
NASCAR fan and his favorite drivers were Dale Earhart Sr. and Jr. He
was also a huge OU Sooners fan, but the true athletes that he supported
where his grandsons, Ashton and Camryn. He loved going to their baseball,
basketball, flag football, soccer games and watching them ride their dirt
bikes. He dressed in the team colors and loved helping supply their
equipment. Ernie’s last purchase was a set of Walkie Talkies because he
was not able to walk up to the bleachers to cheer. He would sit in his truck

River in his earlier years.
