  • Earl was a colleague who became a friend and I consider him as family! He was my biggest cheerleader when I took the managerial role at AVIS. Over the years I have enjoyed many conversations with Earl and Loretta. Particularly about Laughlin. He knew I loved Laughlin. Earl would never let up on any medical issues he was having, just saying he’s ok and getting through it. Thanks for all your support over the years, even when I was not at AVIS. Erik and I are truly grateful to have known you! A Hui Hou. Aloha, Tina & Erik Walker

  • Loretta, I was so sorry to read about Earl. Having been a classmate of his in Richland, I know what a thoughtful, kind person he was. Enjoyed seeing you two at a few of our reunions. He was always considered a good friend.

    My prayers are with you for strength and comfort in these difficult days.
