It is with much sadness that we share with you that our classmate, Ernie Pelaia passed away on
Sunday, January 17, 2021. Ernie was a kind and caring person who was a great friend. He will be remembered
as a positive, loyal, and private person who was soft-spoken but very competitive and hard-working.
He was an excellent athlete, teammate, and loving family man.
We extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife Sandrae and his four children,
Timi Kormos, E.C.Pelaia, Tracy Pelaia Taylor, and Holly Boatright.
Rest in peace, dear friend.
Ernie Pelaia passed away on Sunday, January 17, 2021, at the age of 76.
