James Lloyd Earle of Blenheim passed away at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Tuesday August 17, 2021.  The youngest of four boys to the late Stanley & Zoe (Tetreault) Earle, he is survived by his brothers Don, Doug and Ken and their families.

Forty seven years ago in Kitchener, James met his future husband Euri Anifantis.  The years that followed would find the two of them working hard, travelling far and wide, spending their winters in Florida, their summers in Ontario and most importantly, living each day without regret.  James retired from a long time career in Kitchener as a foreman in the furniture finishing industry.  He always managed to keep busy with daily projects in his retirement.  After living in Ridgetown for awhile, he and Euri built their retirement home in Blenheim.  He was a kind and caring person who will be missed by many people who he met along the way.

James’ family will remember him quietly.  For those who wish to recognize a life well lived, be kind to those around you.  Reach out, help your neigbours and leave the world a better place than you found it.
