Earl was a Rotarian from 1965, he was president in Bolton Ontario he then moved to Muskoka where he was a lifetime member.

Known for his quick wit, funny jokes, and stories of the events of a very busy and varied life. He loved nature, reading, flying his planes, snowmobiling, parties, family get-togethers, and mom’s cooking. He had a great passion for new experiences, new foods, travel, new people, creating, experimenting, and prototypes.

In the last two weeks home in Glen Orchard was an open house. Many many family and friends were able to visit, have a snack, and even enjoyed a story or two. We thank you all for making this last time with Dad perfect. He couldn’t have wished for more!

He will be greatly missed!

We will have a Celebration of Life in the spring.
