Sorry to hear of Earls passing. He was a good friend of my fathers for a long time. I got to know him from working together at the Bloomsburg Fair and considered him a friend. He really enjoyed the fair and we had a lot of good times there. My brother Todd said he stopped at the stand this September for an ice cream and looked good. Hope he went peacefully. Rest in peace Earl.

I am a relative of Earl's. I haven't seen or knew of his whereabouts for years. I am sorry to hear of his passing. I was wondering if anybody knows of the whereabouts of his niece, Pam Conrad. I have been trying to find her for a long time. I can be reached at the above email address.
