He enjoyed carpentry, woodworking, hunting, fishing, and was a certified welder. He most of all enjoyed spending time with his family. Earl was preceded in death this year by his Pug dog companion, “Mickey”. Hel was an active member of the Onaway United Methodist Church and served as an usher until his illness.
