Like his father before him, he lovingly provided for his family by working in the coal industry from daylight to dark. Earl was raised by his parents to love his family unconditionally and wholeheartedly, which he faithfully did throughout his life. He loved his wife, children, and granddaughter beyond words. Upon his retirement, Earl became loving chauffeur and best buddy to his pride and joy, his granddaughter Michaela. They spent numerous evenings after school enjoying Wendy's french fries and Frosty's. He played with Michaela outside after school, teaching her to shoot basketball and ride her bike. She was always, and will always be, number one with Papaw.
Earl was an avid fan of University of Kentucky basketball and loved to watch them play. He also loved to be outside, working in the vegetable garden and fixing up his old truck.
