Earl passed away peacefully in his sleep on February 2, 2020, at the age of 92. Born in Rouleau, SK in 1927, his family moved to different areas around Moose Jaw including Tugaske, SK; and later south of Moose Jaw in the community of Buttress, SK where he attended Red Lake School. He joined the army at the age of 17, training in Saskatoon, Manitoba and British Columbia. Thankfully the war ended before he was sent overseas. He later trained as a Psychiatric Nurse at Valley View Centre (training school) where he met his wife Edna, who was a year behind him in training. They were married in 1959 and later purchased farm land south of Moose Jaw, where they raised their family. They stayed on the farm for over forty years before moving into an apartment in Moose Jaw. Earl was also an Addictions Councilor at the Angus Campbell Centre for a number of years. Earl had a laugh that you could hear for miles and always enjoyed a good (or bad) joke. He belonged to many groups and clubs including the Toastmasters for many years, where he received many awards. Earl was also a Legion member for 45 years. Some of his many enjoyments included baseball, hockey, curling, square dancing, bowling, camping with family, going on tours and bus trips. He is predeceased by his parents, Ronald and Tena; his siblings, Cliff, Hazel, and Jessie; and his daughter in law, Sue. Earl is survived by his wife of 60 years, Edna; his children, Dale (Virna), Terry, and Brenda (Wes); his grandchildren, Carly, Wyatt, Colton (Kaitlyn) and Chayse; his great grandchildren, Mary, Lilliana, Amy and Logan; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
