Earl enjoyed the outdoors with a love for fishing, traveling, trying new food, spending time with family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father; and grandson, Demetric “DJ” Ritche.
Cherishing his memory will be a daughter, Cathleen Green of Ardmore, OK; son, Mark Green of Abilene; grandsons, Mylic and D’markus Ritche of Ardmore, OK; and several other family members and friends.

Went to high school with Earl, always enjoyed tearing around in that red 64 convertible Ford. When he joined the service, he put me in on the buddy plan and it took two years to get the recruiters to stop calling. Rest in Peace my friend.
