    We are wintering in Lakeland Florida where Earl attended the ‘Fun ‘N Sun Air Show’ and would like to express our sympathies to his family. I will miss the morning coffee with Earl.

    Dear Eric and family,
    As an old school mate and a neighbor. I’m very sorry to hear about your father. He and your mom we’re the best of people. Time really goes by fast. I’m also sorry to hear about your brother, Mark passing. We all used to have fun on the school bus with old “Donna Myers” God Bless you all and Be Safe.

    Uncle Earl was like a father to me and will not be forgotten. Appreciated for teaching me many of his mechanical skills as well as operation of the farm equipment. He was not one to judge people which I found to be a huge attribute that many people lack. Growing up as a young man he guided me when I needed it most and remained a loving Uncle through out my life. I will miss the visits when ever we go back to Silver Creek. No doubt he’s in a better place now!

    Uncle Earl will be missed. We enjoyed talking to each other during my summer trips back home. It is with great sadness I did not get to see him this year but I did call him a couple of times. My prayers are with his family at this time.

    Your dad must have been a good role model for being friendly. When we moved in our home on Hanford Road I used to wave to you while you were waiting for the school bus, many times you had waved to me first – we are neighbors down the road and met your dad at Aunt Millie’s one day when he was there visiting with his friends. We always looked for him outside his house and gave him a wave or a ‘hello’ when we saw him. He was always kind enough to return our wave probably wondering who we were! It was a common sight to see him sitting in his lawn chair enjoying the nice weather and on the few times we did have a conversation with him he was always so pleasant. I’m sure the neighbors will miss his cheerful smile when they pass by the house. Our sympathies are with you and your family -

    alot about tractors. Someday I will. My love and prayers to the
