A golden heart stop beating july 18th 2020 when Mr Lionel Earl made his transition but he left a lasting impression on all whose lives he touched. All Jamaican students who past through the halls of the various university's of Daytona and came in contact with Mr and Mrs Earl can attest to this. The doors of the Earl's home was always opened to us all and one would always feel welcome, as well as full because you could not leave without a lovely home cook meal, the Earls home was a safe haven for all of us who were taken home by Aston. Mr. Earl because of his caring heart earned the nickname Papa Smurf, but he was never aware of it, as it was behind his back the name was used. I remember the day I got the name prento as it was Mr Earl who pulled a prank on me, i had a screw driver in my hand and he asked me to hand him a spanner, so as i bent to pick up the spanner, he shouted his favorite cliche "garllings" mi ask Caple for a spanner an him give mi a screw driver he is a Prento, i have carried that name ever since. I left Daytona for sometime now but the Earls have never left my heart or mind and i can assure you they will never, as their kindness and love has left a remarkable impression on my life. Mr Earl may be gone but i take comfort in the fact that he is gone to join Ms Lucy. I can assure them they will for ever be in my heart.
RIP Sir Earl aka Papa Smurf

My brother Colin I and have been friends with Aston & Lionel (Teddy) from we were around 11 and were always at Daddy Earl's house in Richmond Park learning to ride trail bikes or driving a go-cart or checking out what their uncle was building. Daddy Earl was always welcoming and generous to us and all the other friends that came by the house. Those years have remained cherished memories and he was one of the rare people that truly loved and cared about those who he met and family and friends that were around him. His life belongs to God and there is no death in God only life. Although we miss him we believe he has received a greater and eternal life from God. Let us remember with Love and not sorrow.

I can remember the years that Mr Earl faithfully took his daughters to Sunday School at Bethany Gospel Hall in Jamaica. It speaks so much of the godly man he was and what he wanted to be instilled in his children. It has resulted in godly children who have grown up to call him blessed. He has lived a long and enjoyable life and the Lord has seen it fit to call him home. May the memories he created live after him. It was my privilege and joy to have seen him a few years ago after so many years. I look forward to seeing him again as we meet together with our Lord. Thank God for the love and care his children has shown him over the years.

Mr Earl was like a true godfather to all of us students, attending Embry-Riddle with his son Aston in the 70's. His kind and firm demeanor always reminded me that he had expectations of good behavior and grades, everytime we saw him while visiting Aston. Mr Earl was the man you could always talk to, ask his opinion or for advice if you needed it. Lionel Earl sr was a good, christian soul and I was priveleged to have met him in my lifetime.
RIP Mr Earl

Mr. Earl was one of the most humble,kindest man I ever met.
Growing up in Richmond Park, his home was my second home and I will always remember his hospitality.

Peaceful Journey.

We were all so lucky to have Daddy Earl in our lives that it makes saying goodbye so hard. I will miss him calling on a Saturday morning asking to speak to dear Maud and asking how everyone was. This was a call he made to everyone every Saturday until lately when his health started to fail, we will miss those calls.
RIP daddy Earl
