Ernie D. Armstrong Jr.
Ernie D. Armstrong Jr., 59, of Winamac, passed away unexpectedly at 12:30 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 9, at his residence.
He was born on April 23, 1960, at St. Joseph Hospital in Logansport.
Ernie was a 1979 Winamac High School graduate.
In his own words, Ernie “beat on cars and showed shadows on the wall,” working at Goble GM and owning/operating the ISIS Theater in Winamac. Ernie had many passions in life, including repairing and collecting vehicles, as well as providing endless entertainment through the ISIS Theater. He also enjoyed collecting antiques, visiting swap meets and hunting. Ernie believed in a strong family bond, and most loved spending time with his two grandsons, which allowed him to once again be a big kid himself.
Survivors include his son Zach [Ashley] Armstrong; and Ernie’s partner Vickie Kaczmarek and her daughter Rhiannon Armstrong of Winamac; and grandsons: Nathaniel and Jackson Armstrong. Ernie is also survived by all past and present members of the ISIS Theater staff which he highly regarded as loved ones and family.
He was preceded in death by his brother Kenneth Joseph Armstrong; father, Ernest D. Armstrong Sr.; and son Ernest D. Armstrong III.
Graveside services will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Nov. 15, at the Winamac Cemetery with a gathering to follow.
Memorial contributions may be made to the Ernest D. Armstrong III Scholarship Fund in c/o the Pulaski County Community Foundation.
