I am so sorry for the loss of this lovely man. He was a pillar of our neighborhood. I grew up playing in his yard with his children. A quiet, unassuming man, who was a hard worker and loving father. Their family was an extension of my own and reinforced the values of my own home. In recent years I was able to see him from time to time as our lives would intermingle and his kind eyes and warm smile were always accompanied by a genuine hug. He was one of those people that just made you feel like he was really happy to see you.
Most of my memories of him were working on a car or something that needed repair or his garden, while we children played but I remember one day when; for whatever reason, and I do not recall how this was pulled off because all of the parents worked hard, BUT, the softball game we had every evening amongst the neighborhood kids became a game that included the parents!!! I don't think I ever saw my dad run and play ball like a kid. I didn't want that game to end and breathless from playing, my mom said, 'Its ok well do it again some time'. Of course they never did but that one night was like magic. For a few hours, We were ALL kids together.
Rest well, Mr. Earl. Thank you for being such a kind neighbor and a wonderful memory and influence in my life. It was a blessing to know you sir and I look forward to seeing you on the other side. May God bless you.

To the Delawder Family, Diane and I are sorry for your loss. Mr. Earl was a good man who loved and cared for his family and always had time to set and talk to anyone. The memories I have of Mr. Earl is when we (the boys) would come over to the house, he was always ready to talk to us and offer friendly advice. Mr. Earl is a role model on how to treat people with dignity and respect. Mr. Earl will be missed by all who knew him.

Uncle Earl was amazing man who loved his family, his brothers, sisters and many friends. Aunt Loretta and his children were the loves of his life. He was always happy to see me even tho I lived in Virginia and was years in between . I loved him with all my heart. I know he is in God's kingdom free of all illness and flying high. I love you Uncle Earl.....

Kathy and I had the wonderful opportunity to see him a couple times over the years and he always had such a way to make you feel so welcome and like you were the most important person he knew! He never forgot to send us a Christmas card every year. He will be sorely missed.

I never met Mr. Delawder, but I do know one of his sons very well and I'm sure they share many of the same qualities and characteristics. That being so, Mr. Delawder was a wonderful fellow and I wish I had known him, also. My prayers and thoughts go out to his family.
