Mason, Earle Francis 64, of Dallas, TX, passed away on July 25, 2013, after a 2 year fight with prostate cancer. Earle was born in Boston, MA, on October 15, 1948. His small family moved to Kirkwood, MO, outside of St. Louis when he was young. He graduated from Kirkwood High School in 1966, and continued on to receive a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Southern Methodist University in Dallas, TX, in 1970. During his years at SMU, Earle developed a love of Dallas, where he would make his home for the rest of his life. He also built enduring friendships that continued until the day he passed away. Earle worked as an independent commercial real estate broker in Dallas for over 40 years. His business took him all over the US, from Boston to Los Angeles, seeking commercial properties to buy or sell. Often his work brought him home to St. Louis, where many of his childhood friends still live. He enjoyed all sports; in particular, he was a passionate basketball player and supporter of the Dallas Mavericks. And although he grew up a St. Louis Cardinals fan, Earle became a dedicated and vociferous fan of the Texas Rangers. Earle is survived by his two children, Rebecca Anne Mason and Gregory Lewis Mason, and countless dear friends. Earle was preceded in death by his father Lewis Gleason Mason, his mother Dorothy Maude Brett Mason, and his former spouse Jennifer Landgraf Mason. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to SMU Office of Alumni Relations, ATTN: Andrew Snow, PO Box 750305, Dallas, TX 75275, or by calling Becky Ortiz at 214-768-3834.

Services: Earle's friends will gather at 11:00am on Saturday, September 14 in the Lyle Executive Lounge, 2nd floor of The Collins Center at SMU (3150 Binkley Avenue). The family of Earle Francis Mason wishes to thank his many friends for their love and support during this difficult time.
