It is with great sadness that the elder members of the NEMCRC learned of the passing of a Northeast motorcycling enthusiast of giant proportions with the death of Ernie Crust who passed away at home on May 17th
Ernie was as keen an enthusiast of the sport as anyone could meet. A charming and polite man who wrote books on his sport with local themes. A few of his books which reflected this local theme were “Drop of the Flag” – “Between the Tides” – “Teesside Glorious Years”.
He was also a hands-on organiser with the Middlesbrough Motor Club as well as being a collector of racing machinery in the tiddler classes.
Ernie’s Funeral will take place at Kirkleatham Crematorium Wednesday 6th June at 1.00pm.
Family flowers only. Donations in leu to the Redcar Lifeboat Museum and Friends of Redcar Cemetery
