It was a great service full of fond memories, and I'll very much miss Earl's sense of humour and playful nature.

Ruth & family, When I think of Earl, a flow of good memories flashes through my mind when we served in the 2nd squadron in Kingston Ontario. Yes, we worked hard (sometimes 😉) but we also had exceptionally good times too and Earl was always in front of the parade, sort of speak! He always made us take the extra steps during military exercises and we were proud to served under his leadership! So may good souvenirs that I hope we will be able to share when our turn comes up! My sincere condolences!
