He was always a model to follow, in Teaching, in Honor, in Physical Strength & activities, in Love of Nation and in love of Family. May his example be followed by us. Goodby my Teacher & Coach, Goodby friend, We all will miss you.

To the family of Earl Acuff. It was a honor and a privilege to know him. Words can't express how much he will be missed. My deepest sympathy thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My first year as a Cadet I was the roommate of BG Acuff's son Billy. I have many fond memories of interacting with the General during that time...both inspiring and intimidating! He always showed me the greatest kindness and compassion. I shall miss him as I do his son Billy. May you both rest in peace and know that you live on in my memory for your service, honor,integrity, and friendship!

He will always be with us in our minds and continue to inspire us as he did in life.

Ardis, you are in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this time. You have such wonderful memories of such a tremendous father...you will always be truly blessed.

I had the privilege of working for GEN Acuff at Virginia Tech when he was the Commandant of Cadets and I have a lot of fond memories of him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

Earl and Mary Low were two very special people. Wonderful people who enriched everyone they touched. On the racquetball court to making quilts, they excelled. The world is very lucky to have their smiling faces and warm personalities for so many years. RIP from your many friends.

I thank the Lord for giving me the privilege of knowing Earl and Mary-Low. Their memories will live on and thank you Earl, for being a true patriot and hero.

What an incredible biography; an inspiring life full of history and serving this great country. He and Mary were such a wonderful part of our racquetball history as well. We have all been blessed to know them.
