Ernest L. “Ernie” Stuck, 82, of Titusville, passed away peacefully Monday evening April 9, 2018 at UPMC Hamot in Erie one month before his 83rd birthday.

            The son of the late Anna Clevenger, Ernie was born in Erie and grew up in the Crawford county communities of Meadville and Titusville.  He married Helen Phillis on Nov. 21, 1959 in Titusville and together they raised five children.
