Earl grew up on the family farm east of Murrayville and was a 1973 graduate of Jacksonville High School. Upon graduation, he joined the Merchant Marines and enjoyed sailing around the world. He served in the United States Navy for six years honing his skills in nuclear propulsion while stationed on the USS James Madison. Upon his honorable discharge, he accepted a position with Callaway Nuclear Power Plant at Fulton, Missouri. He often spoke of the great guys he worked with and enjoyed their friendship as they gathered for breakfast on Wednesdays in retirement. Following his father’s example, he was instrumental in continuing the annual Million Family Burgoo.
The family would like to thank Earl’s neighbors, Jimmie and Brenda Moore and Paul and Pam Burris for their friendship, care and support especially the last several months.
