It is with deep sadness and surprise that we received the news of Earl's passing. Our entire family, especially our mom, Janice Kipf, will never forget the love and loyalty Earl displayed for our sister and his wife, Connie. Earl was a devoted husband and a beloved member of our extended family. We know that Earl and Connie are now re-united in a better, more peaceful place. May God rest his soul.
