Ernie Coffman

Postby NZcaver » Nov 14, 2017 7:23 pm

Farewell to veteran Oregon caver, SAR volunteer and regular NSS Forum participant Ernie Coffman. He passed away Saturday November 11, 2017. He was in his mid-80's, but with so much energy and enthusiasm you wouldn't know it.

Rest in peace, Ernie.

Sad to hear that Ernie has passed. One would have never guessed his age by his energetic posts here on Cavechat.

I was thinking the same thing! I always imagined him as a young man. I guess he was young at heart.
