He received his education in the Chambers County Public Schools.
He was well known for his smile and his sense of humor and for his famous saying,” I am little piece of leather but well put together.” He never met a stranger. Earnest loved being around everybody, so he was giving a signature nickname that fit his character. The name that was given to Earnest was “E.B.”, which stood for Everybody Buddy.
Of the many jobs that Earnest held was the one he enjoyed the most, was his employment at David’s Automotive as a mechanic. He was the first person that you saw when you walked into David’s Automotive. You would see him smiling and talking.
