Born in Hiawassee, Georgia on September 20, 1935, the eldest son of the late Earl and Lizzie Arrowood. He was an Air Force veteran and afterwards graduated from North Georgia Technical and Vocational School in 1960 and moved to Pendleton, South Carolina. After moving to South Carolina, Ernest followed his dream of owning his own business and started Dynamic Machine and Textile Fabricators, Inc.
