Born August 29, 1957 in Indianapolis, he graduated from Emmerich Manual High School. Did you know Earl boxed and ran cross country? He joined the Army after graduating and served 5 years.
Earl was admired for cooking, especially barbecuing. "He could make a meal out of nothing", says Elke, and he truly enjoyed cooking for her. He loved listening to old school music, hanging out with his family and watching westerns.
Immediately after the viewing, Earl will be recognized for his service in the military.
We all loved Earl and will truly miss him. We take comfort in knowing he is at peace.
