Earl Noseff

Information sent to T.Mason on 15 Feb 2007 by Wendi Peavy. "Earl has several children that have found my mother. I do believe he was a "popular" man. Earl died before my mother met him, but we got to know Earl's brother, JR very well before he passed away. My Aunt Cindy is the spitting image of Earl's sister Elizabeth. I hear Earl had a striking resemblence to Telly Savalas...so much so that he shaved his head and carried aroung a lollipoop! We spent many vacations with Uncle JR and Aunt Ann meeting the Noseff family."
