Regret I was never able to talk to Ervin to get his memories of his WWII experience and family stories about his father and grandfather. I’m doing research on the Kosmatka families. Sincere condolences.

I had the greatest respect for Ervin and his trumpet playing. I also play trumpet so I know what it takes. His power and tone were the best and one of the best I had ever heard. I heard him play at AB and later one day met him in the AB parking lot and I told him how I felt about his playing. He never would remember me I, at 77, still remember him. Heaven will get a nother great trumpeter. God Bless him.
