Mr. Ernest played a huge role in my spiritual life once I came to know him at work. He walked by example to show me how to love those that weren’t always kind & to be bold and courageous in my beliefs at the workplace. On a different note, he even opened my eyes to how I could pray my enemies out of my way and I saw many fall and be removed from my path, even over night sometimes. He would pray for me constantly at work and away.
Even after me transferring to a different plant, he kept in touch and would send a kind thought or prayer my way. At times of visiting his plant to help with issues he always made me feel at home and blessed! Even after my medical leave and end of employment, he continued to lift me in prayer and check in on me. When I messaged him for his birthday and got no response, my heart sank a little because I knew it wasn’t like my Mr. Ernest.
Mr. Ernest became known as Uncle Ernest to some because he was much like a father figure, teacher, & lecturer, especially to the young ladies. He would always try to take care of them and keep an eye out for them.
He was very discerning and knew God in a grand way! He met a young man one day when he had trouble with his car, who gave him a ride home, & later he told me of his encounter and he knew that I knew this young man and that he was important to me. Sure enough, it was Eli, my son’s best friend who had recently came into ministry. We had a long talk about their encounter and it truly pulled at my heart strings. I was extremely excited that Eli was blessed to meet Mr. Ernest and pray for him as well as be prayed for by him! I can’t explain it but that meant so much to me.
Mr. Ernest would mentor me spiritually and he even gave me the Bible CDs to listen to on my long commute to work and home. He would switch a new one with me each time I finished. He reminded me of my God, to call Him, how powerful He is! Psalms 91 he would often say, reminding me to read it again and again. God bless Mr. Ernest.

A big brother you were. Your memory lingers on till we meet again. To me you represented all that was right and good. Only Jesus Christ is perfect. You lived the way you saw it right. At peace with your God. Hanging with your Mom & Dad. Chatting with Eric about good old days.
Rest in Peace where there's no pain or sorrow.
So long Big Ernest Roy Achuba.
