Ernie was born in Derby, Colo., on Sept. 20, 1927, to Adolf Seipp and Edna (Woodard) Seipp. Ernie spent most of his life in the Grand Lake-Granby area where he met his wife Kathrine (Potts) Seipp. He spent his time ranching, driving school buses for 37 years, operating “Ernie’s Septic Tank Service”, and raising his family.

Ernie is survived by daughters Becky Seipp and Deborah Seipp Thompson (Michael), step-sister Maryann Sullivan, grand children Doug Wray (Christie), April Scott, James Stafford (Katelyn), Timothy Hardy Stafford, Christopher Thompson, three great grand children and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.
