I worked 36 years ago with Ernest at Benwood in the coupling shop.What a nice man he was and being a young man at that time I remember that he always had time to help me out and show me maybe a easyer way to do things.I all so remember that Earnest almost always had a smile on his face. Can”t say that for the other guys.Please tell Jack I said hello.To the family please express a pray and condolence. In my eyes there were none better.
