He was born in Ephrata, Pennsylvania on July 8, 1963, a son to Eugene H. and Thelma (Hostetter) Zimmerman.

He loved working in his garden, hiking, and riding his beloved motorcycle. A Christian, Ernest was called to work in prison ministry for several years in the We Care Program in Alabama. His love for the Lord was shown through his musical gifts as a bass and guitar player. He was an active member of Agape Bible Church serving as an elder, worship leader, and board member.

He is survived by his children, Judah and Ella Zimmerman; parents, Eugene and Thelma Zimmerman; brothers, Earl (Miriam), Ray (Esther), and Michael (Cheryl) Zimmerman; grandmother, Laura Zimmerman; mother of his children, Kimberly L. Pollack; and many nieces and nephews.
