Earl Burns was the most faithful, loving, and caring husband, dad, and PawPaw. He loved his wife, children, and grandchildren with every fiber of his being, and there’s nothing he wouldn’t have done for any of them. His wife, Peggy, was his whole heart and the love of his life. To Coty, he was the best role model, the man he always looked up to. To Renia, he was a best friend and someone she could always turn to. To Carrie, he was her biggest cheerleader, supporter, and always there for her no matter what. His grandkids were the absolute joy and light of his life.

Earl was a loyal friend like no other, stepping in to help without hesitation, and he never met a stranger. He loved working in the woods, but what he loved most was carpentry, working to make things with his hands. He was always building something! He was a cut-up and jokester, always loving to have a good laugh. He had a huge personality that will forever be missed!
