He made lifelong friends throughout his career for the State. He was a hard-working man who taught his family the value of a good work ethic and how to manage money. He loved his family and often said how proud he was of them. He was happiest when he was at a family gathering and was well known for his “dad jokes”. A visit with Earl was never complete until he told a joke. Earl was a quiet, steady soul. He provided a lot of security for his family, and they knew they could depend on him.
