Earl was a great man and a loving grandfather to my daughter Hannah. I am greatful for having known him and to have learned life lessons from him. I always enjoyed playing pool with him and listening to his stories. I am also thankful for his service and sacrifice for our country. He will be missed but he is no doubt in a better place and happy again with his bride.
