Ernest "Ernie" Murray Found Sr. – a former Genesee County District Attorney – has died.
He was 86.
Born in York, Mr. Found devoted a 43-year career to practicing law in Batavia. He was partner at Stakel, Suttel and Found. He served as District Attorney from 1965-1974.
District Attorney Lawrence Friedman says a few years ago he arranged to have a picture of the four surviving Genesee County district attorneys, one that includes Mr. Found and remains in Friedman’s office. Although they never crossed paths professionally, Friedman called him a "wonderful" man.
Mr. Found suffered from Parkinson’s late in his life. He and wife Eleanor were married for 65 years.
Calling hours are scheduled for Thursday from 4-7. Arrangements are being handled by H.E. Turner Funeral Home.
