Ernest Lynwood Twisdale Ernest Lynwood Twisdale, 94, of Hilton Head Island, SC, left this earth July 26, 2013, to rejoin his beloved wife and son. He was born April 26, 1919 in Halifax County NC to Sarah Barnes and Ernest L Twisdale and was married to Janice Tanner in 1947. Their twin sons, Lynwood and Andy, were born the following year. "Pop", as he was known to all, served in the US Army during WWII prior to his marriage, and worked for over 30 years for the Halifax County, NC, Electrical Co-op until his retirement in 1984. After living for 55 years in Enfield, NC, 'Pop' and Janice moved to Hilton Head in 2002 to be closer to their surviving son, Andy and his wife, Gail. They made the transition to Assisted Living in 2006 prior to his wife's death. 'Pop' remained at the Carolina House where he was lovingly cared for by the staff that became a part of his 'family' and called him 'Twis'. Even with their coaxing, he still maintained his independence (cooking hot dogs and fresh corn in his coffee pot) until it became time to move on. He was predeceased by his wife, Janice; his parents; three brothers and a sister; his son, Lynwood, and his grandchild, Seth Taylor (Gail) who now rejoice together in a place of peace and love! He is survived by his son Andy (Gail), of Hilton Head, SC and great-grandchildren Savannah and Emme Sutton of Summerville, SC. A memorial service will be held at a later date at the Carolina House (now called Bloom at Hilton Head). Memorial contributions may be made in Ernest's memory to Andy Twisdale for a memorial bench to be placed at Bloom at Hilton Head The Island Funeral Home and Crematory is in charge of arrangements.
