Ernest Edwin Antes, Sr., 70, of Landenberg died January 1, 2006, at Chester County Hospital, West Chester, PA. He was the husband of Anna Mae McKinney Antes with whom he shared 49 years of marriage.

Born May 19, 1935 in Coatesville, PA, he was the son of the late Charles Antes and Helen Ford Antes.

Mr. Antes graduated from Kennett High School in 1953. He was a member of the Delaware Air National Guard where he was employed as an Aircraft Technician for 36 years until his retirement in 1990. He enjoyed the time he spent hunting with his brothers and being outdoors. Each spring and summer he could be found getting his plants ready and taking care of his garden. He was quick to offer a helping hand and always enjoyed the challenge of fixing anything that came his way. He also enjoyed traveling with his wife and spending time with his family.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by: son Ernest E. Antes, Jr. and wife Cathy of Landenberg; daughters Beverly A. Hunter and husband John of Maytown, and Carol L. Diaz and husband Hernan of Nottingham; grandchildren Tiffany and Ernie Antes, III; Jeremy, Jenna, and Jamie Hunter; Joseph, Brandon, and Christy Diaz; brothers Charles Antes of Landenberg and Earl Antes of Oxford; and sister Edria Byler of Exton.
