It is with great sadness we mourn the loss of Ernest W. Graf on August 31, 2018 at the age of 86. He was born on August 13, 1932 in Yonkers NY, son of the late John and Anna Caro Graf. He met and married Kathryn Fleming on June 22, 1957. Kay predeceased him in June 2016.

Ernie was a devoted father of Robert Graf, Jennifer (Robert) Jensen and Lisa (Robin) Graf and a loving grandfather to Robert, Zachary and Emily Graf; Deanna, Michael and Danielle Jensen and David, Evan and Collin Graf; and his Great Granddaughter Charlotte.

In 1951 Ernie enlisted in the Navy and served on the USS Cascade where he met his best friend Ed Bopp, the two remained close for 70 years. Ernie was a proud member of The Eastchester Police Department from 1964 until his retirement in 1992 and was probably best known by many as MILL ROAD ERNIE walking the post on Mill Road and then later Chester Heights.

Ernie was a loyal and devoted friend and will be missed by all who knew him.

We will all miss uncle Ernie and Aunt Kay so very much. When I think of Ernie I think of him always smiling because he smiled with his eyes too. Our families had so much fun at all the backyard BBQs and the yearly Jones Beach and Playland trips where we stayed all day and ended up back and Ernie and Kay's to sleep. I still think of those times. Ernie was a great father, grandfather, husband, uncle, and friend to many. He was a great man. Although he wasn't our uncle by blood, he was our uncle by love. And his family will always be our family. Sending love to all the Graf and Jensen family.

63 years ago Ernie introduced Eddie & Diane who are still married. One of my (Diane) memories of Ernie was he was always bringing his dates to Cook Field at night (to make out). That was until he met Kay. We had many good times bringing up our families together, we love him & will miss him.
