Hearing about Earle’s passing has brought tears to my eyes. I worked with Earle for several years in Hoover, AL at the Central Gulf Region Office. He was in the office around the corner from me. He was such a sweet and godly man. Earle loved to talk about his family. They were definitely a source of pride for him. I can still hear his music going in his office and him singing away with the door closed. I feel very honored to have known him.
