Robocop1051 Posted June 30, 2015 Report Share Posted June 30, 2015 I wish I didn't have to share this bad news with you all. It just came to my attention in the last few minutes and I couldn't postpone passing it on. Our dear friend, MicroGunner, has passed away.James Ernest "Ernie" Simms aka/ MicroGunner August 30, 1955 - June 5, 2015 Tampa, Florida http://hosting-1678.tributes.com/obituary/show/James-Ernest-Ernie-Simms-102550804 James Ernest "Ernie" Simms, 59 of Tampa passed away June 5, 2015 at his brother's residence. He was born in West Virginia. Ernie previously worked at City Pawn, Delta Kitchens, and was previous owner of Big E's Gun Shop. He was a proud voting member of the NRA. He had the gift of gab and enjoyed talking and visiting with family and friends. He is predeceased by his father and mother, John and Betty Simms.

Eternal Reef, as his wish was to be part of an artificial coral reef.Most of you know him here. He was always a jovial member, getting his punches in with the guys and always being a positive contribution to our community. I don't have the physical ability to write about all his great qualities. We called him friend and we called him brother. He was a major part of our 308AR family and will be dearly and deeply missed. God has a great and wonderful addition to his kingdom. I hope he's stocked up on .22lr in preparation for Ernie. Vaya con Dios mi hermano.
