Earl W. Clines

January 6, 1938September 26, 2019

Earl Weston Clines, born 1-6-38 in Ferndale, MI, to Otto Allen Clines and Alice Rhodes Clines, died 9-26-19 in Greer, SC.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth Clines, daughters Deb Angel and Pam (Bruce) Dauzy, step-sons Dan Shytle and Eric (Courtney) Shytle, granddaughters Lisa (Justin) Stout, Dorothy Shytle, and Lily Shytle, grandsons Zachary Barclift, Evan Shytle, David (Jeanna) Dauzy, Brian (Sydney) Dauzy, and Philip Richardson, and 5 of the most precious great-grandchildren to ever walk this earth (in his eyes anyway) – Kierstin and William Stout, Boden and Scout Dauzy, and Tyler Dauzy, as well as brother Carl (Keiko) Clines, and many nieces and nephews, all of whom he greatly loved.

He is preceded in death by wife Georgia Hoskins Clines, granddaughter Melissa Angel, 4 brothers, 1 sister, and his parents.

He loved to laugh, joke, tell stories, write poetry and spend time with family, but serving God was his favorite way to pass the time because he knew it was the most important thing, He has now joined his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, after a strong fight against health issues for many years. He is now healthy, strong, at rest, and probably telling God some jokes, and we are grateful.

We sat together in Sunday School for a long time.
We talked about what a blessing it was to be able to get out, and
He loved coming to church.
We will miss him so very much!
We look forward to that Great Reunion in the sweet by and by!
Will always miss you, Earl!
And will always love you!!
Love, Lisa and Shirley

Earl Clines — what a great guy. I don't think I ever heard him complain and he always had a smile on his face. He was a great friend to my Dad — they were both part of a small group that prayed together every week until health issues forced their meetings to stop. Earl preceded my Dad to heaven by one day and I expect they're worshipping the Lamb together, both finally able to stand and walk unassisted.

I have known Earl Clines, lovingly called Uncle Earl, since one as knee high to a grass hopper. My mother and his wife Georgia were friends since 8th grade. My brother and I grew up with Debbie and Pammie Gail. My heart was broken due to his passing. Heaven has gain an Angel and my Mom Susie has lost a very good friend.
Sending live and prayers to Debbie, Pammie Gail and Betty. Would also like to seng hugs and special thanks for taking such good care of this special man. We will miss you and always love you Uncle Earl.

I know your life
On earth was troubled
You werent afraid to face the devil
You were no stranger to the rain.

Go rest high on that mountain
Earl, your work on earth is done
Go to Heaven a-shouting
Love for the Father and the son.

Oh, how cried the day you left us
We gathered round you bro grieve
I wish I could see the angels faces
When they hear your sweet voice sing

Go rest high on that mountain
Earl, your work on earth is done
Go to heaven a-shoutin
Love for the Father and the Son

I have known Earl for 48 years. I was a kid when we first met and addressed him as Mr. Clines. (I dated his daughter briefly while his other daughter "chaperoned" our dates. ) Years later, my wife, Priscilla and I bought his home in Michigan and lived there 25 years. I will miss his smile and sense of humor. Prayers for Betty, Pam, Deb and all the family.
