Ernest was born in Pursglove, on May 20th, 1944, a son of the late Ernest Sr. and Frances Hare. He was a man of many passions from music, to building street rods. He taught guitar and played the bass guitar in the Bonnivilles’, Rivieras’ and Frank Dewitt & the Drifters. He was also blessed with an angelic voice only comparable to the king himself. Ernie also joined and served in the National Guard in the late 60s. He worked for over 30 years right here in Morgantown at the Davis & Lynch glass factory as a glass blower. In his later years, he enjoyed a retired life spending time tinkering away with his cars, his horses, and cruising to local and national car shows.
