Mr. Earl was such a sweet man. My husband (retired Police Chief Dykie) has known Mr. Earl for many many years. I met Mr. Earl at Hickory Park restaurant where we had so many interesting conversations. Mr. Earl was full of information. Other family members also have had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Earl. I actually just saw him recently at the restaurant and he told me he was still riding his lawn tractor. An amazing man. He will so be missed. Our condolences to his family.

We were very good friends of Earl's. We enjoyed celebrating the Holidays together and cooking all the meals. Mr. Earl (as we called him) enjoyed talking about his trucking days, also his time in the service. Bob & Earl jokingly called one another "Buzzard" and "You Old Crow". We will miss him .

Mr. Earl was a very caring person. We will miss his visits to York. My three children enjoyed the personal cards and poems Mr. Earl would send to them on their birthdays. Our family loved his home cooked meals and listening to his wonderful stories. One of the best guests we ever had to share stories at the Gillmen bar. Our condolences to Earl's family and friends. We have many great memories of wonderful man! God bless and peace. Gillmen Family
