Earle was raised in the Coventry area and eventually moved to Poughkeepsie where he worked as an engineer at Triangle Technical. Earle had always had a love of boats and the water, for a while he owned and operated a marina on the Hudson River at Norrie Point, Rhinebeck, N.Y. He later returned to Coventry and purchased his childhood home. His greatest pleasure upon returning to Coventry was to re-connect with friends and sit by the lake that abuts his home and enjoy its natural serenity. Earle was involved in a variety of organizations including the Mansfield Community Center, the Pine Lake Community Club, and Andover Sportsman Club.
