Earl was born in the family kitchen in Monroe, LA on July 19, 1951. His family jokes this is when his love of food began.

As a young man, Earl proudly served in the U.S. Navy on the U.S.S. Midway. Later, he began his career at the U.S. Postal Service. He made many friends during his 28 years there until he retired in 2014. His favorite past time was cheering for and supporting his children and grandchildren at their sporting events. He also enjoyed watching wrestling with his youngest son. He has been a New Orleans Saints fan for decades and could be found yelling at the TV on Sundays. “To the man we call husband, daddy, papaw, and more, thank you for loving and always being there for us. You are now wrapped in God’s arms and tucked in our hearts. We love you!”
