Earl was an avid gardener and long time member of the Pine Island Garden Club, traveler and cook. He and Mary were 2 of the original founders of the non-profit From Our Hearts, a Breast Cancer organization that covers Pine Island. Earl was always thinking on how to raise money and in 2004 he came up with the idea of a 5K walk to raise money for From Our Hearts. This walk is still ongoing to this day. Earl will be remembered for his smile and all of his stories about his life and travels with his beloved wife Mary.

A Celebration of Life will be held on December 22, 2019 at Pine Island Cove Clubhouse. Time to be determined.

In lieu of flowers please make donations in his name to From Our Hearts a program of Beacon of Hope, or Hope Hospice at Healthpark, Fort Myers.
