Ernest (Ernie) David Alesso 90, known to many as “POP”, was born on August 17, 1930 in Bakersfield, CA. and went to be in the presence of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on October 1, 2020 in Los Osos, CA.. Ernie’s Father, Giovanni (John) Alesso, emigrated from Italy and his Mother, Hazel Anderson, was from Tehachapi, CA. They had five children, Victoria, Isabel, Virgil, Johnny and Ernie.

As a child, Ernie attended Panama School. As a teen he attended Kern County High School (Bakersfield High School), where he met the love of his life, Fay Reynolds. Ernie graduated from KCHS in 1949 and in January of 1951, he and Fay married. They enjoyed 62 years of marriage and their endless love blessed them with three children, David (his wife Eileen), Mike (his wife Lynn) and Judy. Ernie also leaves behind two grandchildren, Mike Jr. (his wife Amber) and Paige Charpentier (her husband Cody) and three great-grandchildren, Jamie, Ephraim and Cecily…and a fourth appearing soon.

Ernie worked hard as a farmer until the early 1960’s, then began his employment in the oil industry. He worked for B.J Hughes, Tidewater, Getty and Texaco Oil companies and retired in1993. Ernie was a long-time member of the North Chester Church of Christ where he enjoyed attending Sunday morning and evening services. He would occasionally attend services at the Olive Branch Community Church with David and Eileen.

Family, friends and strangers describe Ernie as a “true gentleman”. He was a kind, sweet and generous man with a capacity to love that knew no boundaries. Ernie was a blessing to not only family and friends but, to numerous strangers that he saw needed help. Whether a stranger in need of money, a ride, a friendly smile or a stranded motorist that could benefit from his vast automotive knowledge, Ernie never hesitated to stop and help in any way that he could.

Ernie constantly showed his love for his family. No matter how tired he was after a 16 hour work day, he enthusiastically and lovingly participated with his children in, Boy Scout/Girl Scout activities, baseball/softball practices and games, school functions and various other activities. Ernie also loved animals and as a testament to his kind and gentle manner, animals loved him.

Ernie’s family would like to thank Central Coast Home Health and Hospice for their assistance, with a special THANK YOU to nurse Mary Pat for the love and care she consistently gave him. We also want to thank Shannon Shea for the exceptional love, support and endless care she gave to “Pop” for the past year, to make sure he was comfortable.

Judy, Mike & David, your loss is immeasurable. I’m afraid Ernie has outlived most of his many friends. Judy, you were there to salve the wounds when he lost his soulmate. You were there to push back the heavy curtain of loneliness that threatened to engulf him. You were there to brighten his days, providing emotional sustenance to a starving man, a pinnacle of good, of love, of unselfish devotion. I can see Fay’s face as Ernie arrived for their reunion, arms outstretched to have her loneliness assuaged forevermore.

Judy where do I begin? Your Beautiful spot awaits you in Paradise pumpkin. It's been said by many if you care for a loved one til the end, a special place in Heaven awaits you.

pop was one of the nicest most genuine gentlemen I have ever met. Being around him and his loving wife the times I was able to , I was always in awe of their endless devoted love and ways towards each other. Rest easy dear Ernie and say hello to Ma. Judy I have always known you to be the devoted daughter but to allow your parents the respect to be cared for in the home the way you have as made you a saint.! Much love to the Alesso family.

It would take the rest of my life and much more space than allowed here, to express the Love, gratitude, admiration and respect that I have for this AMAZING Man! If you ever had the honor of meeting/knowing my Pop, then you understand what I am trying to say. The world needs more people like Pop . He didn’t have a mean or selfish bone in his body. I strive to possess any amount of the endearing qualities that made Pop so special. I know I am blessed to have had him as long as I did and I thank the Lord daily for the gift of my Momma and Pop. My Parents taught me everything...except how to live without them. Perhaps in time, when my broken heart begins to heal, I will discover that they did in fact teach me that too. I Love you and Thank you Pop, Forever and Beyond.
