Earl was a kind, loving, and always thankful man who believed in Guardian Angels, and on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, at the age of 97, he got his wings. Earl was a World War II veteran in the Scottish Essex Company C, and was proud to receive the 65-year pin from the Royal Canadian Legion. In 1954, he won the Galt Bowler of the Year award, and also enjoyed playing Cribbage and doing Word Search puzzles. He worked on the family farm and at Sheldon's Engineering for his career.

Earl....You will be greatly missed. We enjoyed the crib games, your wonderful sense of humour, and our visits when we returned to Ontario. Thank you for all the good times and fond memories.

Mom and I send our love during this difficult time and the entire family is in our hearts.
I will always remember the times we spent there. ( even though I was quite young)
Card games, stories , food and an abundance of laughter and love was all around .
Uncle Earl's soft, kind and generous spirit was something Dad admired and he always looked up to his Big Brother.
They are together again and continuing where they left off.
Hugs to you all!

To the Querin Family:
I've had the greatest opportunity to have known Papa Earl for many years.... even in his early years back to the socials at the Legion. He was a committed gentleman in all aspects---a family man, kind, caring, compassionate, generous and fun loving. He and Reta raised their four children by showing them pride of workmanship, honesty, integrity, and making the best of everything life throws at them. I was fortunate enough to have worked with some of them in their schooling years. Some memories that will never be forgotten.....picking up Papa Earl from his 12:00 PM sift at Sheldon's Engineering....most enjoyable times at the cottage involving some beer, horse shoes, golf, cornfields, and the bunky.......marching on Nov 11th no matter what the weather and socializing afterwards at the Legion.......ripping open Nevada tickets with anticipation of winning.......walking me up the aisle on our wedding day....the hottest day in July.......his sense of humour and grin in all situations and sharing lots of laughs about aging human traits and having breakfast out in his later years.
Papa Earl may be gone but he will never be forgotten...may he RIP....sincerest sympathy to all......

Our deepest sympathy to Jane, Judy, Denis, Tim, Auntie Audrey and their families. Although through time we have lost touch, we have thought of you all often. As a child I remember the family visits with you and the gentle and kind man Uncle Earl. His mischievous grin was a trait that I remember well. Another proud soldier has gone home. Hugs to you all at this hard time. Mike & Vicki (ne: Querin) Nielsen

I am so sorry for your loss. I loved everything i read in the obituary, although i knew that he was much loved and was a man of integrity, just by what you have told me. A father you loved, and who you are very proud of. I am sure your memories will help you along the way. I am sorry I cannot make it on Monday, but i will be thinking of you.
