He grew up in rural Hartington and attended Hartington High School until he began helping his father on the farm. Ernie married Joan Allene Hirschman on October 10, 1951 in Hartington. He and Joan raised pigs and had a dairy herd of Black Angus stock cows. Ernie also worked for Joe Peitz as a service technician, along with working for Gerry Miller Implement as a salesman.
