Earl was the finest man I have ever known, and I am a better person for having known him. I feel immensely lucky to have had that chance. I will never forget his kindness, his patience, or his general awesomeness, and will always remember the times we spent at Braves games with special fondness.
I worked with Earl at Georgia Tech and he was such a very nice man, always had a smile. He will be missed.
Before Julie & I moved to Arkansas in 2008, I spoke with Earl, never the least bit aware that this conversation might be our last. He was the consummate gentleman and a fine softball teammate for several seasons and the world is a far poorer place for his passing. One of the best opposite field hitters Ive ever seen and a fine teammate. When its my time and I cross over and fine another team to play on beyond, Im sure Ill see Earl again with his friendly smile , holding that lineup card.
I just learned of Earl's death. I went to school with Earl from Monte Sano thru Richmond. He was a friend and will be missed by all that ever knew him.
I am very sorry to hear of earls passing we went to Richmond together and I used to drop him off after school at the shop on Ellis st he will be missed
