Obituary for Earnest "Ernie" May

Earnest “Ernie” S. May Jr., age 67, passed away on March 28, 2018. He was born April 25, 1950 in Dayton, TN, son to Ernest and Alberta May. He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Linda, children: Jessica (Jay) Wells, Rebecca May and Zachary May; grandchildren: Justin, Jordan, Jenna, Andrew, Savannah, Natalie, Easten, Carter and Madison; siblings: John (Terri), Richard (Leeanne), Julie (Neil), Roger, Ed (Laura), Tina and Paul; many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his infant son Andrew James, parents, and sister Bonnie.

Ernie was a gifted mechanic that enjoyed working on cars, tractors…anything with a motor. He was always tinkering with something or telling you about what he was currently working on. He loved spending time with his family and telling goofy jokes. He will be greatly missed.
