Earl is my dad's brother and was always a big part of my life. He and his wife lived in Bridgeport when I was born and moved to Plainfield while I was still little. I remember spending time at their home which was the first place I ever saw an episode of Star Trek. Later they moved to a farm near Cartersburg, Indiana, and built a house there. In 1973, my dad bought the home from Earl and my dad spent the rest of his life there. Earl bought a farm down near Center Valley and farmed for many years. Eventually he built another house next door to his farm. That is where he and his family lived when he passed away.
What I remember most about my Uncle Earl is how tall he was as he took after the Polston side of the family so much. He also loved to laugh and share a good joke. His family meant the world to him and he meant the world to them.
