Farewell to veteran Oregon caver, SAR volunteer and regular NSS Forum participant Ernie Coffman. He passed away Saturday November 11, 2017. He was in his mid-80's, but with so much energy and enthusiasm you wouldn't know it.

Rest in peace, Ernie.

This is very sad news indeed. Ernie helped out at a lot of conventions and will truly be missed in the caving community. Peace be with you Ernie. Condolences to your friends and loved ones.

Sad to hear that Ernie has passed. One would have never guessed his age by his energetic posts here on Cavechat.

I was thinking the same thing! I always imagined him as a young man. I guess he was young at heart.
