I love you Dad. I will always regret we never got to become friends as adults. Thank you for giving up the best years of your life to be my father, for helping to teach me right from wrong, and for teaching me to always do what's right, regardless of consequences. Some of the happiest and most treasured memories of my entire life will always be us cutting firewood together. Cindy - if you ever need anything, do not hesitate to ask. Also, you knew my Dad during a time when I couldn't, If you ever want to share Earl "war stories" from the last 20 or 30 years, I'd love to hear them.
RIP no more pain
I never knew you but I will miss you and watch over us as you are celebrating with everyone
I remember all those times he would play that acoustic guitar and sing with us kids. One thing the obit neglected to mention was all those "Godzilla" movies he loved to watch, too. I miss you, Dad. You're forever in my heart. Love you. ~Gin Gin
Cindy and Family, We are sorry for your loss. Earl was always so kind to us especially Ellie with giving her chips every time she came in the camp kitchen. Please let me know if you need anything. Love, Katie, Ellie and Henry
