Earl Edward Overfield, age 88, of Lecanto, FL passed on September 1, 2016 with his loving wife by his side and while under the care of the staff of HPH Hospice. Earl was born on March 20, 1928 in Pittsburgh, PA to Norman and Sofie (Fugman) Adams Overfield. After graduating high school, Earl enlisted in the Marine Corps and spent 3 years in China.

After retiring in 1983, Earl and a friend started Travcon, a company that marketed condos in Hawaii and Florida.
As a young man, Earl enjoyed sport cars. Later on, he and his wife Darleen enjoyed spending 6 summers sailing the Chesapeake Bay. After moving here from Pittsburgh in 2005, they enjoyed fishing, crabbing and scalloping.
