November 9, 1940 — November 4, 2017

Ernest “Ernie” LeRoy Bahrns, age 76 of rural Williamsport, IN passed away at 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, November 4, 2017 at his residence. Ernie was born on November 9, 1940 in State Line, IN.

Upon graduation, he worked at Olins in Covington before joining the US Army Reserves. He also worked for Golden Oil Company for 10 years. His true passion was the love for farming which he did with his dad and later his son until he retired in December 2015 due to his failing health. Besides his love for farming, you would see him in the pasture with his second love, raising cattle. He loved his family, especially his grandchildren, where you would always see him being one of their biggest fans. Ernie was a member of the State Line Christian Church where he had many lifelong friends. He was a member of the Fountain F & AM Lodge #60 and the Scottish Rite of Danville, IL.

The family would like to give a special thanks to DSI in Lafayette, to all the nurses and Dr. Al-Makki and Amy Allspaw, and IU Health Hospice, especially Terri McKeighen for their wonderful care.
