  • Earl was a wonderful and caring man. I spent a lot of time out on the lake with Earl fishing and snowmobiling out on the lake and enjoying bond fires on Elk Island. Earl had a wonderful laugh and I enjoyed his company. For the years that I knew Earl he was always a joy to be around. Brent Robbie - Posted by: Brent Robbie (Friend ) on: Oct 28, 2021
