Following retirement Ernie started a "second career" driving a cab. He met so many people and really enjoyed the job until health issues caused him to retire in November of 2009. He loved the game of golf, hunting in the North of Ontario for moose and fishing with the "Old Hunt Gang" down on the Bay of Quinte once the bush was a bit much as the guys got older.
