Earle was one of the kindest men I ever met. Worked with him at The Observer for decades and never saw him in a bad mood. Earle always had a friendly smile and kind word for everyone. Whether discussing music, sports or anything else, he always made you feel he valued your opinion even if he disagreed. He was the best at what he did. All of his friends and co-workers will miss him terribly.

John Earle Livingston, The Duke, was a good man. We met through the newspaper business but enjoyed a friendship for many years. Earle has a way of bringing you into his world - whether on the Seaside Heights Boardwalk, or a concert, a football game or with a game of chance. His laugh, his love of life and his joy drew you in. He made you laugh. As many know, Earle enjoyed lots. I remember how he told me about the many times he ran out of gas going anywhere. Some might think that’s nuts but Earle saw it as an adventure. I don’t recommend that, but I dare you to enjoy life like Earle. He was a friend for all. Thanks Duke for the many laughs

In the late eighties I came over from Dublin, Ireland to work down the Shore. I got to know Earle well when I worked next to his Union Jack stand on the Seaside Boardwalk. Throughout that time I had many interesting & enjoyable conversations with Earle. In the madness that was "The Shore", speaking with Earle seemed to always give me a refreshing window of normality. Many years later I returned back to Dublin, I had met many people in my time in America but remember very few...nonetheless I always remembered Earle. He was unique, a Gentleman who was balanced, mature but nonetheless boyish in his own way and as we say in Dublin " a bit of a lad"! He was very American but at the same time had a very European way about him. He was widely versed & I always enjoyed his perspective on things. Needless to say we shared the odd beer together and enjoyed many laughs! I was deeply saddened by Earles passing. I extend my heartfelt condolences to his family whom I know he loved dearly. No doubt you were all very proud of him. "Slán Leat mo Chara", tonight across the Atlantic, I will have a glass and a toast to your memory. The memory of a good and decent man! ... Gary Melvin
