    Bill was a regular at my barber shop for a few years before he moved to the nursing home. I always greatly enjoyed our visits in the shop and hearing his stories. He will be missed. I’m grateful I got to know Bill.

I’m so sorry you along with ALL his grandchildren were left out of the obituary and were not granted permission to attend his memorial.. Prayers for strength and comfort during this difficult time and the days to come. Keep his memories close to your heart because no one can take that away.

    To All if Bill’s family

    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I cared for him at assisted living. I will miss his smile and his hugs. Always more concerned about the the staff than about himself, he was always grateful for any help offered to him.
    Until we meet again, my friend.

    Earl was a great friend and brother in Christ. We enjoyed breakfasts’ before we went to clean church every week and appreciated each other’s company. We had good times fishing. He was always thoughtful in all things, a very giving person. He always shared his heart and concerns. A wonderful man of God. We will miss him but know that he is rejoicing and receiving the peace and comfort of Jesus.

    I am so very happy for you Bill. You finally have the peace that was so selfishly stolen from you the last couple years of life. Praise God for your eternal rest. God bless and comfort your children

    Earl was a true man after God’s heart. My family was blessed to have him in our lives and we called him family. He was the kindest man and his love for his friends and his family had no bounds. Earl also had a love of fishing and we would spend time every Sunday at church over coffee and hot coca before the service talking about fishing. He was my friend and to me he was family and we miss him dearly. Earl was the kind of guy that when he showed up to go fishing with you he came with sandwiches and cookies to feed everyone and bottled water. He neve came empty handed. I will always cherish my time with him fishing on Pymatuning Lake. His greatest day was when he reconnected with his daughter Sandy and going to see her, oh the joy he had to be at her wedding. He called us so many times just over joyed. Earl left a foot print in this world that can never be filled but most importantly he touched more lives then he could imagine. His love of God and his faith will be carried in others that he touched. Earls life had so much meaning as a servant of God. I know when he entered the gates of Heaven God said to Earl….. well done my good and faithful son! We love and miss Earl and will treasure him always. The Wyant Family

    Sandy and Billy,
    So sorry to hear of Earl’s passing. He was one of the good guys. I am sure he and Terry are having fun looking down on us and sharing their fishing stories. I remember how much he loved his family!
