We are going to miss Eual terribly here. He was one of the finest men and a fantastic musician and it was always a pleasure to see him walk through our doors. Our lives are better for having known him. RIP buddy.

Eual was my best friend for almost 80 years. How blessed I was to have known such a talented man. Eual loved his family and was there to give support to whatever they did. You will live in my heart and mind forever my friend.

Eual was more than a Pal to me going through high school in Marion...he was like a brother who would do anything for me...just as I would do for him. The good times we shared are still fresh in my mind as I read his obituary and know that his friendship and life will always be special - not only to me - to all of our classmates from Marion High School 1958 graduating class as well. He brought joy and laughter, music and fun to everyone around him.Thanks, Eual...Don Westall...

Scott and Family, I'm truly sorry to hear of your dad's passing, I remember the long summer days of walking down the road from our house to yours and listening to the music yall were making. Your dad was such a joyful man and he will be missed, you and your family will be in my prayers in the days ahead.
