Earl was one of the most honest men I have known. He will be greatly missed by not only his family, but many lodge brothers as well. God's speed Earl, and RIP brother.

I’ll always remember how accommodating Uncle Earl was introducing life on the farm. Growing up a city boy, Uncle Earl shared the various aspects of farm life from milking the cows to striping tobacco. These experiences had a very memorable effect on my boyhood. He was a teacher and a strong role model to me.

Brother Earl was a loving Masonic brother who was often a visitor at the Hamilton Temple. Everyone who knew him, loved him. We will miss him and offer sincere sympathy to the family.

Fraternally,

I was one of the aids that worked with Earl, and I was truly blessed to meet such an amazing person! Loved hearing his stories about his family and his life.
Truly one of my favorite residents and will be deeply missed❤️

One of the first memories I had is when I was a little kid and wondered into the milkhouse. He was with one of the cows and showed me how to connect the machine that milks the cow. Then he showed me where the milk went into a big vat. He opened the top lid, dipped in a ladle and scooped out some of the cream that went to the top. He had some and held it for me to have some. We both had white mustaches. I thought that was the coolest thing. I'll always remember that. Loved you.
