  • Ernie Stoltzfus - RIP

    It is with a heavy heart that I report the passing of fellow SDC and Forum Member Ernie Stoltzfus. Ernie, 55, of Christiana Pa. died Thurs. 7/5/2012. A great friend, I will miss him.

    OMG; a heavy heart indeed; only 55!
    Ernie was a great guy and will be missed.
    Condolences to the family; this is terrible news. BP
    We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    Ayn Rand:
    "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

    G. K. Chesterton: This triangle of truisms, of father, mother, and child, cannot be destroyed; it can only destroy those civilizations which disregard it.

      Sad to hear, Ernie was a member of the Studebaker Truck Farmers.

        Ohhh...... my heart is broken.

        Ernie is now and forever whole, well, and at peace. It is us who cared about him who will hurt. Jim- how wonderful that you were a rock-solid, true friend to him as he struggled. God Bless you as well

        RIP, and Godspeed, my good friend. Things won't be the same without you.

              This is really hard. I know how hard Ernie fought.

              This song came immediately to mind and has been stuck in my head. Listen if you want; especially the last 4 lines. In memory of all who fought this fight, and to those that still are, here is my favorite band, 311:

              EDIT: A few were having trouble with the link, so this is a better one. Under the picture are the lyrics.

                Sorry to hear of Ernie's passing. He was a cool guy who helped me with many parts & advice over the years. He did a lot for Studebaker & Keystone Chapter. I will miss him. You & your family are in my prayers as well.

                  JIm,
                  I too am sorry to hear if Ernie's passing. I've often thought of him when I got into the Daytona I got from him. I'd sensed a bit urgency in his liquidating his things, but this never entered my mind. He'll surely be missed.

                    RIP Ernie. You'll be missed here, for sure.
                    No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
