My very favorite uncle! Uncle Earl used to come into our house and tell me that there was a long line of boys outside looking for me and embellish "conversations" he had with them, warning them away. Once I was married, he couldn't very well do that anymore, but he found other ways to make me laugh. I always thought my uncle looked like the movie stars from the fifties. We will all miss him.

I can picture him clearly, sitting on the front porch, reading the paper, an iced beverage on the table, as we'd arrive in the afternoon from high school. He'd always make us laugh with his jokes and observations. Earl was such a continual cut-up. Remember how he assigned every single one of Linda's boyfriends the exact same name? It kept it easier that way, he'd reason aloud, often in front of the hapless boy! Or how MEAN that garage was to Linda, each time it attacked the yellow Datsun? Of course, the Datsun was never attacked if HE was driving it! May you always keep fond memories in your heart. As Shakespeare (or whoever really wrote all the stuff attributed to Shakespeare) wrote, " What wound did ever heal but by degrees?" May you seek to find peace in the weeks and months ahead.

I was sorry to learn of Uncle Earl's passing. My memories of him will always be his smile and quick wit. I still smile when I think of him lifting me up when I was a skinny little kid, he'd laugh and say "you're really getting fat" and we both got a big laugh out of it.

Gosh, I don't know what to say. We all know that I'm usually at a loss for words, too (smile). I just loved Earl!! He was SO cool! I love this picture of him. He always had a twinkle in his eye. Almost like he knew a secret that you didn't know and he wasn't going to tell you, either! He will be very missed by all who knew and loved him and by those of us who didn't know him long. That's the kind of impact Earl had on people. What a great love he had for his wife and his children. They just don't make them like Earl anymore. Jeanne and family - know that I love you all and thanks for sharing Earl with us.

I enjoyed Earl's sense of humor and playing cards. He was always fun to be around. I know he will be truly missed by all who loved and knew him.
Kim Rause left a message on February 29, 2012:
Earl, Grandpap, will be missed greatly. He taught me about life through his stories and showed me the importance of a sense of humor and a smile. He went to basketball games, soccer games, and tried to show me how to play golf. He always had a hug and an ability to make me feel comfortable and good. His love for Jeanne is inspirational, as is his life story. This world, my world, is better because Earl R. Williams was in it. I look forward to celebrating his life with friends and family.

Earl was a very special neighbor to us and my mother at the Condo. He was fun to talk to and always had a smile on his face for everyone. He will be missed. My mother, Bernie, also sends her condolences. Please know you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
Barbara Jehu left a message on February 28, 2012:
Hi Aunt Jeanne, Uncle Earl was the only person I've ever known who get away with pulling me up onto his lap & calling me "doll!" My memories go back many, many years & they are all held with great fondness. I have to agree with Joanne, he was my favorite uncle as well! What a great picture. Please know we are thinking of you and your family during this sad time. Much love, Barbara
