Ernesto Luis Acosta Obituary

Ernesto Luis Acosta, known affectionately to all as Ernie, passed away on July 6, 2024. He was born on February 17th, 1945, to Ernesto Acosta and Felicita Ruiz in Bayamon, Puerto Rico. 

Ernie has six sisters (Yvonne, Louvette, Lizette, Evelyn, Frances, and Lisa) and three brothers (Tienet, Alberto and Manuel). When he was 8 years old, he moved to New York City with his grandma and his sisters Louvette and Lizette.

After hearing the gospel at the age of 18, he accepted the Lord as his Savior and started attending the First Baptist Church on 116th Street in Manhattan.

He was drafted into the army at the age of 20 and served his country in the Vietnam War. He spent the rest of his life proud to be a Veteran.

In 1976 Ernie married his beloved wife, Alice. 
In 1984 they welcomed their first child, a son, who they named Ernesto Luis Acosta III. Then in 1993 they welcomed their daughter Alaina Ariel Acosta. They raised their family in the Bronx.

Ernie worked for the Nestle Food Company for close to three decades. He began as a Salesman and was later promoted to Direct Account Representative. 

Ernie was someone who his family and friends could always depend on. His favorite saying was “I live to serve.” 

He was a lifelong Yankees fan, enjoyed listening to oldies music and loved animals. He also loved dining out often and getting to know the staff personally. 

Ernie was a devoted husband, father, pappoo, brother, uncle and friend to many. He is survived by his loving wife Alice, their children, Ernie and Alaina, his son in law Louis and his 3 adoring grandchildren Isabella, Leonardo and Jaxson, who he lovingly nicknamed “Bellie Boo,” “Just Leo,” and “Ethan.” He is also survived by his dear siblings Louvette, Lizette, Alberto, Frances, and Lisa as well as many nieces and nephews who treasured him as a father figure. 

As we gather to honor Ernie’s life and legacy, let us celebrate the profound impact he made on our lives and the countless memories that will live on in our hearts forever.
 

The family will receive friends and relatives at Ralph Giordano Funeral Home on Sunday, July 14, 2024 from 5:00 - 9:00 pm.  A chapel service will be held at the funeral home at 7:00 pm.  Mr. Acosta will be laid to rest on Monday, July 15, 2024 at Calverton National Cemetery.

His care and arrangements have been entrusted to Ralph Giordano Funeral Home.
