I have fond memories of Brother Cantrell from Christian Faith Temple where my grandfather pastored. You could tell he loved The Lord, and was a bright light. Now he gets to be with his Savior!

To all of the Cantrell family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mr. Cantrell. I remember going to his home as a very young man and playing music with his son, Tim. Those were the days.

Condolences to my family on this sad day. Uncle Earl was by far my most favorite uncle. Have such fond memories of him as a child and into my young adult life. I remember how much he loved gardening and as a little girl going into the garden and picking vegetables. Evenings sitting on the porch with him. He was fortunate to live a long life when all I yearn for now is just one more visit with him😭 so much love Uncle Earl I’ll see you again one day😘♥️

We mourn the loss of a dear friend.  Yet, we know he is far happier in heaven.  

We know that that Earl is now walking in heaven with his sweetheart Juanita... and his loving Savior Jesus.

Jesus and Earl were best of friends....if anyone knew Earl at all!  

Earl was such a sweet man....full of humor....full of joy....a hard worker..and a dear friend!

It has been a honor knowing Earl, Juanita, and the rest of the family.  We love you all and are praying for you during this difficult time.
