I met Earl at the Riverview Church of God in 1980. We soon became good friends. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for anyone. So. giving!! It saddened me to hear of his passing.. RIP Earl 💝

I knew Erle for several years and had the opportunity to serve his crop insurance needs. I always enjoyed talking to him and you could see his love of farming in his eyes. He will be sadly missed, God bless you Erle.

It was with mixed emotions that I received word of Earl passing away. I pastored Riverview Church of God for over 5 years, and during that time Earl was a very faithful member of the Church. In so many ways he help me and encouraged me as a Pastor. Always there when I needed him. He was and still is a true friend! He will be missed but he is now in Heaven free from all his pain and now in the very presence of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Prayers for the family. Erle always gave us a chuckle when he came into The Andersons.
