This is a written tribute to a childhood friend, whose friendship lasted a lifetime. I’ve known Ernest since the spring of 1959. We attended Looscan Elementary, Marshall Jr. High and Jeff Davis High School.

We were close friends, not in the sense that we spent a lot of time together but close in that we formed a friendship bond at a very early age that has continued throughout adulthood.
He loved to play basketball. He and I played on the Marshall Small Boys Basketball Team. After practices and home games we’d walk home together down Cochran, laughing and talking smack (he was good at that)! He also played on the Davis J.V./Varsity Basketball team and was captain of the team his senior year.

Ernest was always the life of the party and he was a very accomplished dancer. I think he enjoyed entertaining people and dance was a big part of that entertainment. I would see Ernest once a year at the Jeff Davis Hispanic Alumni Dances held at the Shriner’s Center and he was a dancing machine: Cumbias, Boleros, Tejano, Rancheros, Country & Western, and Swing dance.

In the fall of 2002, he invited my wife, Pearl and I to his home for a New Year’s Eve party. He was an excellent host and we had a very good time. While at his home, he informed Pearl and I that he was proud to be a very big Elvis Presley fan (really big)! He showed us a room in his house that was entirely dedicated to Elvis Presley, very well organized with collectibles and memorabilia everywhere. He also had decorated their Christmas tree with Elvis ornaments! In that evening at Ernest’s home, I saw a genuine person, true to his beliefs and enjoying his life with family and friends. That was the last time I saw and spoke with Ernest.

Ernest has left the building, but will not be forgotten.
May you rest in Peace, my friend. “Que en Paz descanse.”
