Earl married his beloved wife, Dawn, on January 1, 1984, and they enjoyed a union of 38 years filled with love and adventures. Earl and Dawn love to go for rides with no destination in mind just being together and seeing where the road would take them. They would find themselves in Canada, Vermont, Maine, or Buffalo the states and cities were endless.

He was also the caretaker of Fairview Cemetery in Bridgewater, NY.  Earl was the Highway Superintendent of Bridgewater and he made sure that the roads were clear and safe for all who traveled them.

With his love to travel, Earl shared his love of Canada with his wife and family making many trips there to visit.  Earl was an avid fan of the Yankees, Toronto Maple Leafs, and Buffalo Sabres.
