Ervin Charles Rutledge III, longtime resident of Center Line, died peacefully on May 14, 2020. He was 74 years of age.

Ervin was born in Detroit, Michigan on February 19, 1946, one of ten children of Ervin and Theresa (Leggatt) Rutledge II. He served our country proudly and honorably in the U.S. Marine Corp. during the Vietnam War. Ervin was united in marriage to his beloved wife, Jill, on June 19, 1995 in Las Vegas. He worked for K-Mart for many years. Ervin was a avid sports fan of all the Detroit teams; especially the Red Wings. He loved going out with his family and friends enjoying conversation over dinner and a few drinks. Ervin also enjoyed his occasional trips to the casino. He was a easy going, loving man who will be deeply missed.

Ervin is the loving husband of Jill; dearest father of Michele (Greg) Rutledge-Dahl, Ervin (Ellie) IV and Neal Rutledge; dear step-father of Eric Braun; cherished grandfather of Ashley (Matt), Bill (Katelyn), Pricilla, EJ, Sydney, Dakota, and Meara; great grandfather of four beautiful great grandchildren; beloved brother of Susan (Len), Neal (Elizabeth), John(Cindy), Mary Ann (Steve), Theresa, Leo, Peter and the late Tom and Bill; and dear uncle to many nieces and nephew.

A Celebration of Ervin's life with Full Military Honor's will be celebrated at a later date. Share memories at
