Ernest “Ernie” Lee Vineyard Jr. died unexpectedly in Glendale, AZ on October 11, 2018 at the age of 36. Ernie is survived by his wife, Megan Torres-Vineyard; son, Derek Vineyard; sister, Esther Vineyard; and beloved dogs. He will also be missed greatly by Carol Quintana (Al), Cecilio Torres (Arlene), Erin Divis (Joel), and Leslie Gluck (Mark), along with his nieces and nephews and many, many friends he considered family. Ernie was born on October 27, 1981 in Phoenix, AZ. He married Megan, his best friend, in 2006. In 2005, the couple welcomed, through so much love, one amazing child into their home. Derek will forever remember him as a thoughtful, honest, caring father, and best friend. Ernie took pride in being a father and a husband. He would often be found laughing and arguing with the numerous friends he met playing video games online. He was the most generous, witty, dedicated man who loved his family, friends, and animals, especially his beloved departed Bane. Ernie was known to drop anything when asked to help someone in need. He knew how to make you laugh and smile when you were having a bad day. This world was a better place with him in it and his absence will be felt far and wide.
