I remember Earl from my years at VDOT. I worked in the Equipment shop. Earl loved to operate the motor grader. I often saw him at Corapeake Country Restaurant on Thursday night eating herrings. Praying for the family. Fred Brinkley Suffolk, Va

So sorry I cant be there with you to celebrate Uncle Earls life. We know he has a lot of relatives to greet him in heaven. He will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Uncle Earl and I were born close together so I will always remember him as a playmate. Gone but not forgotten........
