Friday, January 12, 2018Rest In Peace Earle. Earle was always a happy person and always had a smile on his face. Never bitter, never angry and always friendly. I grew up on Micmac Street and walked past Earle's house on Chester Ave many times on my way to Saint Catherines School. He could hit a baseball further than Mickey Mantle and played ball with us often. He could run and catch fly balls in the outfield also. He could run like a deer. He enjoyed skating at the Halifax Forum and would often put on a little show when the rink rats were cleaning the ice half way through. I can still see him jumping over piles of snow that the pushers left on the ice. Often he would go sailing over them and end up crashing to the ice in dramatic fashion. This would probably be in the late 1950's or early 1960's. We all feel that fine people like Earle are going to live forever but unfortunately all good things and people pass on. I am glad I knew Earle and will always remember him. I would meet him once in a while over the years in the city and although he didn't know my name he always remembered that we came from the same neighborhood. Earle was a true champion of the City of Halifax. A fine citizen and he will be missed but never forgotten. Perry Abriel, Lower Sackville

Friday, January 12, 2018Earle could skate! I knew him from skating sessions at the Forum on Sunday nights way back when. I loved to skate with him. He would glide up beside you, barely take your arm, and he would lead you in and out amongst the crowd, always in time with the music. I saw him a few times in later years, at the Ardmore, at Sobeys on Windsor St. I would always speak to him about the old days and his face would always light up. Rest in peace Earle, hope you can skate up there in the heavens.

Friday, January 12, 2018I grew up on Edgewood Ave and knew Earl during my growing up years. We use to play baseball, on the ball field close to Earl's family. Now there is condo in the place. I move to California thirty one years ago. When I visited my brothers, we would go to the Ardmore Grill for fish cakes. I know Earl use to work there for years. I would also bumped into him at the Halifax Shopping Center. When ever I met Earl, we used to talk about changes in the neighbor. My condolence to his family and may he rest in peace.
