    It was a pleasure to know Earle and sit beside him for many years in the band at Calvary Temple. He taught me so much about the trombone.

  • Marlene says:

    We were so sad to hear of Earls passing last year. He was a wonderful man. My parents Claude and Dorothy Preston loved and respected him so much. When I was in Kelowna I looked forward to meeting him at Denny ‘s for coffee sometimes. One day we will see him again but miss him now. Sorry for your loss. He loved his family so much and talked of them often.
