Ernest William Hoepner was born on November 11, 1926 in Greenfield, Iowa to William Theodore and Alma Mensing Hoepner. He served honorably in the United States Army, concluding in the Occupation Forces in Japan. After the military he returned to Greenfield and married his high school sweetheart, Marilyn Thompson on April 6, 1945. He and Marilyn were married 72 years and had four children, eight grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren.

Raising their family they were faithful attendees of Redeemer Lutheran Church. They took the children camping, boating, and water skiing. After the children were grown, Ernie and Marilyn enjoyed many years traveling in their RV.

Known affectionately as Ernie, Dad, Grandpa, and Great-Grandpa, he was a man of few words with a big heart. He was a loyal patriot, rarely seen without an American Flag on his collar.

As a professional carpenter, he built homes, store fixtures and signs. He designed and built their home in Beaumont. He was the undisputed champion of the family washer tournaments. He could floor you with his hilarious, unexpected one-liners. He loved country music and was awesome with guitar and vocals. Once he found something he liked he would never stray - always ordering the same thing at a restaurant. It must be said, he loved his ice cream.

He is survived by his wife, Marilyn. His children Ron and wife Elizabeth, Ellen, Karen and husband Vince, and David and wife Lana; and his eight grandchildren Lee and husband Chris, Cara and husband Ty, Kelly and husband Greg, Amanda and husband Daniel, Brent and wife Heidi, Carly and husband John, Kimberly and husband Corey, and Casey and fiancée Josie.

He was surrounded by loving family in his last days and heaven received a solider on July 8, 2019.

I met Marilyn and Ernie 4 yrs ago at the apartments. They were so friendly and fun to play cards or Dominos with anytime they loved all games and many Saturday nights Marilyn called several to come to their apartment for cards. We always had a great time. When my A/C was not working they insisted I stay with them . Ernie always liked card games and a ice cream cone every night. Ernie will be missed by many and I will always remember his sweet disposition and smile.

I met Earnie and his bride when their daughter Ellen introduced us at my home. It was instant love. I ended up living in the same Sr. Apartments and enjoyed visiting back and forth.
They would be leaving from my house and Earnie would always turn left out my door. Momma would say no you are going the wrong way, and turn him around.
Once I realized he did it on purpose because he winked at me and we burst into laughter.
It was like he gave her a purpose to keep him going in the “right” direction.
I shall miss your gentle humor Earnie. Fly high in God’s airplane.

Ernie was a very pleasant, always a smile, uncle. The days when mom and aunt Betty and brothers, Craig and Jerry would travel to Texas to see Aunt, Deane Ralph and Marilyn and Ernie. Ernie would be working on wood. Always a pleasure to spend time with him.

I met Mr. Ernie and Marilyn around 4 years ago when they moved into the same apartments that my husband and I live in. He was such a Card! I would always ask him how he was and he would always reply Not so good! and then grin at me .He was always such a sweet man. I will miss him. All my condolences and prayers are being sent to Marilyn and all his family. Linda
