Senior Airman Earl's Story
- Senior Airman Earl John Grover Jr. unexpectedly passed away on October 29, 2016, in North Carolina where he was stationed. He was doing what he loved most, riding his dirt bike with a few of his close friends, when he passed.
Earl was an active duty United States Airman. Earl was very well known, and a highly respected young man. He was known for his laugh, smile, sense of humor and enormous heart. Earl was known to help anyone who needed assistance at anytime, no questions asked. He was known to buy "fixer uppers," cars or trucks, fix them, own them for a few weeks and sell them, just to do it all over again. He loved his ATVs; you'd never find him not riding something. He had a lot going for him, and did very well earning everything he had. We all joked about him still "having his first dollar," because he was extremely good with his finances; he was going places people never thought he would. Earl rarely complained- he was always of high spirits and ready to take on the next day with the biggest grin on his face. He left a lot of great memories behind, and touched anyone's life who he came in contact with.
Earl left behind many, many family and friends. He survived by his father Earl J. Grover Sr., and his wife, Leann D. Grover. His mother April L. Bedard, and her significant other, Corey. His older sister, Brandi L. Beale(Grover). His younger brother, Jake A. Rancourt. His youngest sisters, Josephine J. Rancourt, Delany I. Grover and Destiny H. Grover. His one and only, "little man" and God son, Izaiah M. Beale. His brother-in-law, Michael D. Beale. His grandmother, Donna Bedard, and her life partner, Donald Smith. The love of his life, who he said he would marry, Jenessa Martienz. He also left behind several aunts, uncles and cousins, whom he loved dearly. Earl touched many lives. But the ones he held near and dear, "his buddies, bub," were Shawn Williams, Nick Cates, Joel Crawford, Jared Casey, Dwaine Barnes, Ty Foxx, Jared Hobbs Sr., Jared Hobbs Jr., and Angel Hatch. Earl will always be remembered no matter how many years go by. He was, and is, so loved.
"See you when I see you, another place, some other time. If I ever get up your way, or you're up around mine. We'll laugh about the old days, and catch up on the new. See you when I see you."
I never expected to lose my little brother so early in life, but here we are. This is the hardest thing I will ever have to do. We were supposed to grow old together. I hope you're proud of me for the rest of your life, like you always said you were. I hope this obituary is everything you wanted, and more. You should be here. I love you, buttface.
