Earl stood out from most because of his love for life, untiring willingness to help others and genuine zeal in the belief that everyone deserves a chance and has good in them. You always knew where you stood with him (temper flaring or smiling). He took great pride in being an father, NCO, true friend and Master Mason. Rest easy my friend.
