Ernest was born May 22nd 1953 in Grenada, The West Indies. At the age of 18, he entered the United States Air Force.

He resided in Omaha, Nebraska and continued working as a Medical Administrator at the Offutt Air Base.
Friday accomplished greatness both on the pitch as well as off the pitch. In addition to being a passionate sportsman, in particular an outstanding football player, he was also known for his interest in current worldwide affairs. Beyond this, Friday was a devoted father and anyone who knew him would hear the stories about his "babies".
Friday's devotion did not just stop at family. A man who knew patients' by their first names, many of whom became friends, some of which are regarded as family. Friday was a man full of love and generosity.
He will be greatly missed, always loved and never forgotten.
His family would like to thank all medical staff and friends for their tremendous efforts and dedication to his life.
