Ernest Adolph Garner was born on November 26, 1938. Growing up in Ruffin, SC he was raised by his aunt and uncle, Sal and Maggie Boatwright, where he learned many life lessons. Throughout his life he moved to different places and finally settled down in Manhattan, NY. He met and married a beautiful young woman, Annie Mae Bingley, and that union produced five children. Ernest pursued and accomplished a career in retail sales and bookkeeping and worked many years as a shoe store manager. Anyone who knew him, would say he was very stylish with a flair for brimmed hats. Ernest was delighted when he began to study the bible with Jehovah's Witnesses and learned of Jehovah's purpose for all mankind. He thus dedicated his life to serving Jehovah and symbolized that through water baptism. He served for many years as an elder in the congregation and remained faithful until death. Mr. Garner is survived by his five children Earline Garner, Anthony Garner (Sheila), Janice Garner, Stacey Johnson (Joseph), Carissa Dortch (Jonathan); six grandchildren Philip (Domonique), Dvani, Darshanee, Jayden, Pria and Paxton. A host of brother and sister-in-laws, nieces and nephews, cousins, and innumerable friends. Ernest is preceded in death by his wife Annie Mae Garner, grandson Erroll Vaughn, his sister Janet Williams and her husband Odell Williams. http://www.courant.com/obituaries/hc-obituary-ernest-adolph-garner-20180505-story.html
