Very sorry to hear about Earl. We got to know him through Bryan Bowles, tractor pulling. Always nice to talk with him. He also pulled against David's dad A.F. Yarick years ago. He pulled an AC called Orange Krate. Sure will miss him at Diamond this summer.He will be missed.

We are sorry to hear of Earl's passing. He was a fine man and a witness to his faith by the way he lived his life daily. Dan enjoyed the years he worked with him. We will miss his smile as we're sure you will too. You are in our prayers.

We have lost a wonderful man who loved and served his Lord Jesus Christ. Earl, in my opinion, was one of the finest men I have known who exemplified what it means to be a man, a friend, a father, a husband and most of all a Christian. Our loss is Heaven's gain and one day we can see him again! Love, peace and blessings be with his family.

Always enjoyed visiting with Earl, He always had an opinion and Always enjoyed keeping him just a little bit "stirred up". I hadn't seen him for a a year or so, and regret not looking him up. I didn't realize his condition till I visited with Joe Pace last week
I will miss Earl and especially his views on what was happening, and the 'eheheh' in his voice.
Earl was alwasy a friend to me and my family, we will miss him.
