Ernest was born August 1, 1935, to Ernest and Zella Freund in Laurel, Mont. Ernest graduated from Laurel Senior High School in 1953. After high school, he attended Montana State University in Bozeman. After college Ernest worked briefly at the Cenex refinery in Laurel. Ernest’s career path led him to the Laurel Post office (35 years of public service) where he worked until his retirement. Ernest was loved and respected by the many people he served while working at the post office.
Ernest’s hobbies and passions were: trap shooting, fishing, card playing, walking his dogs, photography and making family homemade movies. Ernest also served the Laurel Rod and Gun Club for many years holding all of the Club’s positions.
Ernest’s main love was his family. Over the years his five nephews and niece were his children and he greatly enjoyed every minute that he could spend with them.
Ernest was preceded in death by his parents (Ernest & Zella); brother, Theodore Robert (Bob); sister, Donna; and his brother-in-law, Clifton Burns.
Ernest is survived by his sister Virginia; sister-in-law Margaret Freund; nephews, Randy Burns (Sharon), Jerry Burns, Robert Freund, Marc (Jeri) Freund and Paul Freund; and his niece, Mary Freund.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Laurel Rod & Gun Club.
