Cherished Husband, Father, and Grandfather


Ernest S. Trost, age 95, died peacefully on March 11, 2020. He was the beloved husband of the late Anna (nee Habat) and dear brother of Edward (deceased), (Marion) and Lillian Trost. He is survived by his twin daughters Jacqueline Takach (the late Larry) and Janice Halterman and his three grandchildren Kary, Kristopher and Brent. Ernie emigrated from Yugoslavia with his mother Rose (nee Music) when he was five years old. He proudly served in the US Army as a medic during WWII and retired from the GM Fisher Body plant in Euclid after 36 years. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed officiating for his daughters' neighborhood summer pickup softball games. Spending time with his grandchildren was also very important to him. When the children were small, "Pops" as they affectionately called him, would sit and color with Kary for hours and play catch with Brent all day. After his son-in-law Larry died, "Pops" stepped in and attended every football, basketball and baseball game of grandson Kristopher's for the next 7 years. In his later years Ernie enjoyed fishing and boating with Kris and Jackie in Florida. He too looked forward to his weekly dinners with Brent and Jan at his favorite restaurant. He loved French Onion Soup! A celebration of life service is planned for spring with inurnment at Holy Cross Cemetery.
