COPS Monitoring's Ernie Gambone passes away

Nov. 2, 2016
Company mourns the loss of industry veteran

It is with a heavy heart and tremendous sadness that we report the sudden passing of Ernie Gambone on Thursday, October 27, 2016.

Ernie began his career in the security industry in 1973 with Robinson Alarm Company – one of the largest providers of alarm systems in the Philadelphia area. In 1998 Ernie started Sera Security, which he ran for more than 13 years and attributed its success to what he liked to call "good old-fashioned service." Ernie joined the COPS team in 2015 and was very active on the NJESA Board.

Ernie will be profoundly missed, but his friendly disposition and positive attitude leaves us with extraordinary inspiration on which to draw. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ernie’s family as we express our deepest sympathy in their time of sorrow.
