Ernie was born November 19, 1957 (identical twin) to Tipisone Fesilaifa'i Enesi (deceased) and Vailili Toma Enesi in Torrance, California. At a very young, he began music lessons and by his teens he was playing several different instruments and a love for playing competitive sports. In 1977, he married his church sweetheart Deborah Ainu'u (deceased) followed by fatherhood and so many more life experiences. Fatih, church, and culture was important to him. In 1991, he received his Matai title (Chief's name): "Veletaloola" (Gasito'o Uta). "Vele" was well spoken, much respected, integrious, and one of the best in the game. Ernie had a great sense of humor, was down to earth with a kind and warm soul full of wisdom and love. His life was rooted in God, family, culture, and music.
