Earle was a former Army officer, Red Cross coordinator, political campaigner, and auditor for the State of New York. Which made him perfect to be our Chief Financial Officer. He was a graduate of the University of Maine. In his later years he no longer jumped out of airplanes, scuba dived, or rode his Harley. He was perfecting his pool game.
Earle passed on to the Great Accounting in 2008. Since Heaven is inconceivable without Harleys, we know what he's doing right now.

She is missed.
