In our family, he was 'uncle Earl'. Our hearts are heavy, missing him so much already. Earl was always true to his word, generous, witty, brilliant, funny, forgiving and someone you could always count on. He has been a solid rock in our family for over 30 years, always ready to lend an ear and a bit of wisdom. He had a huge impact on our children's lives. Earl was one of a kind. He 'knew things'. We loved our Earl-he will be forever missed.

Dear Wendy,
I am SO very sorry to have read of your loss, and of the passing of my highly memorable and special childhood friend! We go back a long way, but miles and time, most unfortunately, interceded with what should have been many more years of a close, lasting relationship.
Our heartfelt sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to you and all of Earl's family during these arduous times!
God bless, and RIP, Willy!

This obituary is exactly how I think of Earl. One of the real good guys. A real man. My sister Marcey said he had a higher vibrational pull than most. He was enlightened. I think of Earl as a friend of mine for life. We didn't hang out all that often in the last few years but the feelings were there. All the Mollers are thinking about you and your family Wendy. I am so happy you met each other and I can say that my friend, Earl, had a happy life!
