Ernest Lawton Rourk III

December 19, 1974 ~ December 11, 2018 (age 43)


Ernest Lawton Rourk, III, 43 of Moncks Corner, passed away Tuesday, December 11, 2018.

Ernest was born December 19, 1974 in Charleston, a son of Ernest L. Rourk, Jr. and the late Helen Elaine Conyers Rourk.

Given this nickname as a small child, it stuck and Ernest was known fondly by all of his family and friends as “Pookie”. He was a video game fanatic who had many physical battles to overcome in his lifetime. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

Surviving in addition to his father are his step mother-Debbie Rourk of Moncks Corner, his sister- Sherri Kroub of James Island and his son Ian.

A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to The Muscular Dystrophy Association, 171 Ashley Avenue, Charleston, SC 29425.
