Obituary

Reverend Ernest "Ernie" L. Laughner, 75, went to be with the Lord, Thursday, September 3, 2020, at his Fairmount residence.

Ernie was born in Frankfort, Indiana on December 12, 1944, son of the late Raymond and Frances M. (Scott) Laughner. Ernie served in the United States Navy from 1962 to 1964 with a duty assignment in Japan. He married Angela K. Berry on September 22, 1963. Ernie attended Cumberland College and received a Psychology and Religion Degree from Ball State in 1996. Ernie loved the Lord and felt called into the ministry where he was pastor of several churches throughout Indiana. His last church was Fairmount Baptist Church where he was the pastor for nine years before retiring in 2005 due to his failing health. Ernie was a former member of the Fairmount Ministerial Association and the Fairmount Lions Club. He enjoyed oil painting and stained-glass work.

Ernie is survived by his loving wife of nearly 57 years, Angela; two sons, Jason Laughner of Fairmount and Eric (Gayla-Kay) Laughner of Albany; grandchildren, Seth (Paige) Laughner, Ian Laughner, Zoey Laughner and Victor Laughner, and Jack Elkins; step-grandsons, Soloman and Isaac Brown; and his canine companion, Ginger.
