Earl is survived by his loving wife, Mary Ann, devoted children, Janet, Mike (Kristy) and Lee Ann (Nick) and his adored granddaughters, Pa’s Girls, Erin (Matthew) and Taylor and his "almost grandchildren" Greg (Stephanie with great-grandchildren Hunter and Macy) and Andrea (Jamie with great-grandchildren Talia and Tessa).  Dear brother of Sally (Bob), Donny (Diana), Sheila (Clyde) and Maureen (Matt).  Also survived by  many nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents Stanley and Geraldine (Karley), brother Ken, sister Rosemary and mother-in-law Florence Fehrenbach.

Earl retired from BOC Gases (Canox) and enjoyed many hours spent at the ball diamond, racetrack, puttering in his garage or on his John Deere tractor.  He was a racing legend, driving the Fireball 5 and member of the Flamboro Speedway Hall of Fame.  He now joins his racing hero, Dale Earnhardt Sr.
