Ernest K. Moyer Sr., 90

Ernest K. Moyer Sr., age 90, of Poultney, Vt., passed away suddenly on April 2, 2010, at the Rutland (Vt.) Regional Medical Center.
   Ernest was born in Tinmouth, Vt., on Sept. 9, 1919, son of the late Kenneth and Ora (Kelley) Moyer. 

As a young man, he was very active in sports, especially baseball. He served his country honorably in the U.S. Army during World War II on the USS Coolidge. In the early 1950s, he and his wife owned and operated the East Poultney General Store, while also working the farm in Middletown Springs, Vt. In 1962, he started the family dairy farm in Poultney, working daily until his retirement. He was a 62-year member of the Poultney Valley Grange, a lifetime member of the Disabled Veterans and also a member of the Brandon (Vt.) American Legion Post No. 55. Ernest also served as a lister in Poultney.

He enjoyed dancing, reading and was also an avid bowler. Ernest was a huge Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots fan. He was fortunate enough to have lived long enough to see the Red Sox win a World Series.
  Ernest is survived by three sons, Ernest K. Moyer Jr. and his wife, Trish, of Bridgewater, Mass., Kenneth F. Moyer and his wife, Barbara, of Poultney, Vt., and Richard E. Moyer and his wife, Tammy, of Poultney, Vt., and by one very special daughter-in-law, Betty Moyer of Poultney.

Heather Flood and her husband, Jay, of Rutland, Vt.; Elizabeth Moyer of Waterford and Katie Moyer of Poultney, Vt.; four great-grandchildren, Ella Moyer, Cooper Mazur, Brogan Flood and Briana Flood. .

  Calling hours were held Tuesday at the Roberts-Aubin Funeral Home in Poultney.  Due to a serious family illness, the funeral service will be held at a later date.
  In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Ernest may be sent to the Poultney Rescue Squad, PO Box 76, Poultney, Vt. 05764.
