Together Ernest and Mabel became members of Oktaha Gospel Church, where he became a Deacon and ultimately served as Pastor for 25 years. Throughout this period of his life he enjoyed being a pastor. He also enjoyed singing with his wife and in a group called Gospel 6.

Survivors include his children, Jannie Stockton and husband Don of Porter, OK, Kay Alverson and husband Buddy of Oktaha, OK, Nancy Brown of Oktaha, OK, Dawna Sullins and husband Teryl of Oakwood, OK, Danny Hale of Checotah, OK, Chester Hale and partner Donnie Chance of Oklahoma City, OK and Ben Hale and wife Norma of Oktaha, OK; Grandchildren, Darrin Stockton, Roger Williams, Chrystal Smith, James Greer, Darren Hale, Timmy Lee Jr., Shannon Rogers, Shane Alverson, Ernest Alverson, Jonathon Serrato, Sandy Mae, Jeremy Sullins, Terence Sullins, Pamela Rich, Angela Williams and Amanda Hale.
