Ernest "Ernie" Urias Thursday, March 3, 1949 - Thursday, August 3, 2017

Ernie passed away at Marian Regional Medical Center with his family by his side. Ernie was born in Santa Maria to Frank A. Urias Sr. and Alodia S. Urias.
He leaves behind 6 brothers and 5 sisters, Virginia Campos (Manuel), Johnny Urias (Juanita), Helen Urias, Gloria Lopez (Ralph), Frank Urias Jr., Luis Urias, Sally Baez (Mando), Carlos Urias Sr., Ofelia Galvan (Regino), Martin Urias (Norma), Mario Urias Sr. and numerous nephews and nieces.
Ernie attended local schools here in Santa Maria. Growing up Ernie worked in agriculture, then later he was employed for 30 years as a gardener for Donna Thrall, who he respected and thought highly of her.
Also on occasions he would help other home owners. Ernie was a one of a kind friend to many and his presence will be missed greatly by everyone he touched. He enjoyed listening to music, especially “Oldies but Goodies”, usually while he was either doing some maintenance or cleaning his bikes along with giving advice to family and friends about their bikes. He also collected model cars.
Ernie was preceded in death by his father Frank A. Urias Sr. (2000) and mother Alodia S. Urias (2015).
Ernie is gone from this world, but is with his Lord and Savior for eternity. Many thanks to the staff at Marian Regional Medical Center.
