Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Earl was way to young. Used to hang out with Earl and Lyle sometimes working on the cars in Earl's back yard. Many evenings driving to the A&W to aggravate the waitress on the speaker with the exhaust from Earl's super bee. For some reason they always told Earl to shut off the car. My condolences to Carol and family, he will be greatly missEd. - Posted by: Ron Evans (Old friend from years ago and from school ) on: Aug 18, 2017

  • Earl was a great friend who was always there for you when you needed him. We spent many hours working on cars in the back yard. Some of them even ran. We had many races against each other, me in my 68 Mustang 390 and his 440 6 pack super Bee. We made some late night drives for coffee at the A&W on a regular basis. Earl was the mechanic, I was the gopher. I certainly feel blessed to have had him as a friend. I am deeply sorry for your loss Carol. - Posted by: Lyle Bishop (Friend from high school in Fort Rouge) on: Aug 17, 2017

  • Our condolences to the family. When I would visit their home, he was always quiet but it was always nice to see him and spend time there. I will remember him as a wonderful man, husband, father and grandfather. I remember when we had joined their family and friends for Carol's birthday, and Carol dressed up as the Queen. He was accommodating to her and how she wanted her special birthday to be. He will be missed. Know that your family is in our thoughts. - Posted by: Naomi fuller (Friend of his wife Carol) on: Aug 17, 2017
