It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Earl on September 22, 2009 at the age of 79 years. He is survived by his loving wife of 55 years Marion, sons Brian (Deanne), Blair (Stephanie) and David (Tara), grandchildren Chelsey (Josh), Katelin, Rebecca, Derek, Kynan and Karleigh, and brother Roy (Peggy).
Earl served with the RCMP for 23 years. He and Marion raised their sons in Vegreville, Mercoal, High Prairie, and other “highly sought after” postings throughout Alberta, finally settling in Calgary. They retired to Qualicum Beach 14 years ago. Earl loved spending his free time with his family, golfing, woodworking and gardening.
Earl’s family will remember him always for his steadfast guidance, fiercely unwavering loyalty and unconditional love.
Dad, your guiding hand on our shoulders will remain with us forever.
