Ernesto Surato Baraceros passed away peacefully on July 9, 2020. He was 76 years old.

Ernesto (Ernie) was one of seven children born to parents, Eufrocino and Petra Baraceros, on August 17, 1943, in Salvacion 2nd, Lupao, Nueva Ecija, Philippines. Ernie attended the Central Luzon State University and received a degree in Automotive Studies. In 1966, Ernie enlisted in the United States Navy and proudly served this country for 22 years on the USS George Bancroft (SSBN), USS George Washington Carver (SSBN) and the commissioned USS Florida (SSBN). After his retirement from the US Navy, Ernie continued to have a connection to the Port Hueneme Base while working in a civilian role until his retirement.

Ernie married the love of his life, Norma D. Antonio, on April 20, 1974 in Maui, Hawaii. They made Oxnard, CA their home in 1980 and had two children together, Mary Ellen and Edgar. Ernie had a love for fishing, crabbing, and clamming. His favorite place to fish and take out of town guests was the Port Hueneme Beach. Ernie was known by family and friends for his generosity and hospitality. He was always willing to help others get ahead in life and enjoyed the simple things in the company of friends and family, such as a good BBQ, basketball game or boxing match.

Ernie was preceded in death by his sister Juling, brother Benjamin, and his parents. Ernie is survived by his wife Norma, their two children, Mary Ellen and her husband Alan, Edgar and his wife Jayme and their two children, Cassie Belle and Aubrie Paige, sister Rose and brothers John and Manuel and many other family/relatives.

Manong Erning is my first cousin, we grew up together although we were from different Province in the Philippines. He was a very good man, quiet, but fun to be with. I remember him picking mangoes, "longboy" and other fruits which were a plenty in Salvacion, just to entertain us when we visit all the Baraceros family. My dad spoke highly of him and was so proud when he left to go to School at Central Luzon Agricultural College.
When I was just new in America, I lived in Elmhurst ,New York. Unbeknownst to me he was in Connecticut, came to visit me and we went across the tunnel to New Jersey to visit his girlfriend. That was my first introduction to his now wife Norma. We became friends since. I went for my Oral Boards in New Haven, CT years later and he picked me up at the airport, the whole family drove me to Yale for the exam. That's how caring my cousin was. I felt very protected when he was around. More or less he showed me the ropes how to live in a big city like New York the first day we met. His good deeds maybe blurred from memory through the years but to me he will always be that good, quiet man who is trustworthy, dependable and loving to siblings and rest of the cousins. It was always Erning do this or do that and you never heard him complain, always job done.
It's good to cry so I'm pouring my hearts out crying not only for him but for his sister. The living suffers but for him, no more pain, no dialysis, no food restrictions and he is a new man again. We pray for the repose of his soul, while he unites with his parents and siblings who have gone before. We commend him to his God and will be at peace again.
Farewell my dear cousin, Godspeed.

My sincere condolences to the family and friends of Ernie. I was a Shipmate of Ernie's back in 1982 onboard the commissioning crew of USS Florida. It was a pleasure to be his Shipmate. Ernie was a true professional. A credit to himself and the Naval Service. Proud to call him my shipmate and friend. Sailor Rest Your Oar
