Obituary for Ernest Carroll Poston

Ernest Carroll Poston, 74 of Iron Station, NC passed away peacefully at Atrium Health, Lincolnton, NC after several years of struggling with health issues. Ernie was born in Mooresville, NC on October 21, 1944 to Rev. Ernest Poston, Jr. and Colleen Washam Poston who both preceded him in death.

Ernie is survived by his wife of 23 years, Barbara Poston and her children Scott Henson (Chandra) of Maiden, NC and Sandy Lemmons of Lincolnton, NC and grandchildren Jonas Henson and Elias Henson. He is also survived by his 4 sisters, Marcia Palmeter (Ken) of Oak Island, NC, Glenna Roush (Mike) of Fort Mill, SC, Myra Faulkenbury of Concord, NC and Lisa Savage (Joe) of Fort Mill, SC along with several nieces and nephews.

Ernie grew up in Charlotte, NC, graduating from Harding High School in 1963. After graduation he served in the U.S. Army primarily stationed in Verdun, France. After service, he worked in the IT Department of Woonsocket Mills. Much of his later years were spent as a short haul truck driver.

Ernie (Carroll or Bubba to his sisters) loved the beach, fishing and all kinds of sports - especially NASCAR, the Dodgers, the Green Bay Packers and all things DUKE. He also greatly loved his precious little dog Squirt, recently deceased.

Funeral services will be held at Pearl Baptist Church in Iron Station on Saturday, October 12 at 2 pm with the family receiving 1 hour prior to the service.

The family requests that in lieu of flowers, any memorials be made to Pearl Baptist Church, Hospice of Lincoln County or any charity of your choice.
