Ernie is also survived by many nieces, nephews, and cousins. Ernie was born in Mendicino, Cozenza, Italy, and soon afterwards, his family moved to the neighbouring village of Laurignano, where he spent his early childhood years. He immigrated to Canada as a young teenager, with his family. In a new country, he formed a lifelong friendship with his clarinet, a friendship that continued throughout his entire life. He was a member of many local orchestras over the years, and most recently, played for his friends and neighbours at Finlandia Village, where he entertained at small birthday celebrations and provided music at the weekly church service. Ernie retired from the Department of Highways, after many years of service as a Class A Mechanic. He was a dedicated, hard-working man, who was passionate about family and music. He will be missed.
