On Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012, we lost our beloved husband, father, brother and friend after a brief battle with cancer. He was born Feb. 27, 1966, to June David and Ardella Kay Memmott. Earl grew up in Garland and attended Bear River High School. He married his soulmate, Karen Thompson, on July 4, 2007.
The Guest Book is expired.
Earl was a gifted tradesman, running a successful concrete business for several years in Cache Valley. Most recently he worked for Larry H. Miller in Riverdale. Selling cars was a true passion of his. He received a distinguished salesman award. He also served our country with the Utah National Guard.
If you were his friend you were one for life.
He enjoyed billiards, fishing and weekly BBQs with family, particularly his grandkids. He made many friends through all his hobbies. Earl has been a significant and positive influence on countless lives through the years. He was truly one of a kind and a straight shooter. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
He is survived by his loving wife Karen; daughter Brandi Chere (Matt) Shaffer; stepsons Casey Wilkerson, Sgt. Cody (Evelyn) Wilkerson and Sgt. Steven Andersen; grandkids Kayla-Jo, Chloee Chere, Brooklyn, Champ and Kaylee; mother Ardella; brother Keith (Sandra) Peck; parents-in-law Robert and Gayla Thompson; sisters Gloria and Jan; and many nieces and nephews. Earl was preceded in death by his father; brother Richard Lane Peck; and maternal and paternal grandparents.
