We never understand God's calling one of are own home to us its always to soon. Over the years of knowing Earl I found he said little and did much. He was quiet in nature with such kindness with such a generous heart and soul for all those who knew him. He had much love to give to his family and friends. He gave without question and required no thanks. To me he was a Man above men. He was an angel who walked this earth and God has called him home. He will be forever missed.

Earl, thanks for all the good memories. You were my right hand man at Penn Power. You provided me with all the technical data that was needed for my jobs - THANKS. I remember the volleyball games at your house. We always talked about the Steelers. I remember when we where going to watch a Steeler game, somehow it got mixed up where. I went to your house and you came to my house. You were more than a coworker, you were a good friend. Thanks for everything
Your Buddy,
