I am sorry to hear of the passing of Earl and offer my deepest sympathies to the family. Having known him only a short time during our mutual employment at Canada Post (Head office), he made such a wonderful impression that left me with good memories of a kind, thoughtful, and generous man.

Earl was a very kind man. The years of care-giving and devotion to Barb were admirable. He always supported each of his grandchildren and gave them guidance and advice - a big constant in their lives. We admired him for his big heart and know he will be missed by all.
Our thoughts are with the entire family at this difficult time.

You were the kindest, loving man there was. Everyone who met you loved you and you touched everyone’s life so much. You were the best grandfather anyone could’ve asked for and will forever live in my heart and the rest of the family’s. You are greatly missed as is Nan. I know you both are dancing up in the sky right now and I pray you watch over us everyday. This isn’t goodbye, it’s until we all meet again. I love you both more than words can explain. Rest easy.
