July 10, 1944February 4, 2019

Ernesto Mojica Quiñones, 74, of Olathe, Kansas went to be with our Lord on Monday, February 4, 2019 at Olathe Hospice House. He was surrounded by his loved ones as he took his brave last breath. His Visitation service will be 2:00 p.m.to 3:00 p.m. Saturday, February 9th at the McGilley & Frye Funeral Home 105 East Loula Street Olathe, Kansas. A “Celebration Of Life” service will immediately follow.

Ernesto was born on July 10, 1944 in Indang, Cavite, Philippines to Emilio and Lucia Quiñones. He married the love of his life, Milagros Antonio, on March 30, 1975 and they were blessed with three children. He loved playing chess in his spare time, watching baseball, early Saturday morning grocery shopping with his wife, browsing hardware stores, and tinkering with cars, clocks, and watches. He loved spring and summer, and could always be found soaking up the rays and the fresh air when he was not reading his Bible.

No one who has met Ernesto has forgotten his big, infectious smile. His smile brightened everyone’s day.

Ernesto was preceded in death by his parents and a younger brother, Victorino. He is survived by his beloved wife, Milagros, and their three children Joseph (Veronica Prince), Lavinia (James Hoffmann), and Maria Rosario (Michael Ludwig); grandchildren Dafne and Jared (Prince - Quiñones), Emma and Liam (Hoffmann), and Tristan and Lyanna (Ludwig); a great-grandchild Sebastian (Prince-Owens); siblings Norma Cayao, Lourdes Villanueva, Ruben Quinones and his wife Ester, Abelardo Quinones, Estrella Resurreccion and her husband Nemesio and sister-in-law Jennifer Quinones along with all of their children and grandchildren.

Isaiah 40:28-31

Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; His understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to Him who has no might He increases strength. Even youths shall faint and be weary, and young men shall fall exhausted; but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

ADD A MEMORY
May Antonio - Ryll

February 10, 2019

I was barely 6 when I became the flower girl to Uncle Erning and Auntie Mila’s wedding. I always remember him as a very quiet guy, but always with heartwarming smile! On weekends my family will visit our Lola Naning’s house and I always remember seeing him working in his little booth where he fixes watch, and how he gets ups to greet us, put his little magnifying glass on his forehead and offer his hand for us to “bless”. That’s how I’ve always remembered Uncle Erning and how I’m imagining he’d still be - enjoying his little booth with his tiny instruments and cute magnifying glass on his face... always smiling and watching over Auntie Mila, Auntie Aida, Jolex, Lavinia, Maria, their spouse and his beautiful grandchildren.
“Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure, you are loved beyond words, and missed beyond measure.”

Some time ago, Ernie had an suv that started leaking some kind of oil. After looking it over he determined it was an axle seal that was leaking. I was pretty sure that wasn't something we could fix ourselves in the driveway. After a few discussions about it with him assuring me he had all the tools necessary and that he was sure we could fix it, I hesitantly agreed to give it a shot. One warm afternoon we started on this task and multiple times I thought we were not going to be able to pull off the repair. However, Ernie kept pushing us forward with his knowledge, guidance, and determination. Eventually the last piece went into place and the leak was no more. Rest in peace!

Your son,

James

A wonderful man who always made me feel part of the family. Despite his physical limitations, he would come over and do whatever he could do to help me with things around the house. From snaking a drain, taking my back door lock apart, to trying to get my busted grandfather clock working. He was always kind to me and he will surely be missed. May you rest in peace Ernesto.

Your son,

Michael

Ernie was the first person I was introduced to when I began my work at Evergreen Community---he was so highly thought of by his care team! He had a Bible on his lap and was reading God's word. I came to know him not only as a man of faith but as one who deeply loved his family and his many friends at Evergreen. His warm smile, his sweet face (with his favorite ball cap on top of his head), and his gentle ways, were a blessing to us all. We thank God for our time together.

He was a jokester with me! Always made me think I was doing something wrong before laughing at me. He always had a great attitude and a smile on his face! He was one of the first people I worked with at MBS and he always made me smile

While your dad and I were challenged with verbal communication, with his smile and a nod of his head, we connected. I could sense his gentle, caring and loving way when he was around friends and family.

When I was in 9th grade, our Spanish class had an after-school gathering wherein we need to bring Spanish tapas. I did not know what to bring and so I told my dad what was going on. He looked at my book, saw the recipe for Spanish Tortilla, and he cooked it for me to bring to the event. When he dropped me off to the school with the food in a platter, it was not long before I set it on the table for everyone to share that the whole thing was gone! My teacher and my classmates kept telling me how delicious it was. Thank you, Papa, for upping my "popularity" that day. You were such a great cook. I am going to miss you!
