Earl was a loving son and brother. He was also an outdoor enthusiast and a member of Victory Baptist Church in Roan Mountain, Tenn. Earl found joy in all those he came in contact with and he truly loved life. He had a special passion for hunting herbs and collecting cans.
Many are left behind to cherish his memory. Survivors include his two sisters, Mamie “Pearl” Owens of Morganton, N.C., and Linda Gouge of Erwin, Tenn. Many nieces, nephews and cousins also survive. Earl loved his nieces and nephews as if they were his own and often took them with him whenever he would go places. In return they loved him dearly.
