Earl was preceded in death by his parents; brothers, Ervin Ooten and Floyd ‘Whitey” Ooten; sisters, Lillie Gilbert and Edith Brewster; niece, Margie Highfill, and sisters-in-law, Katie Ooten and Maxine Ooten.

Friends may visit from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 12, 2013, at Flowers-Leedy Funeral Home, 105 W. Third St., Peru, Ind., with funeral services immediately following at 7 p.m.

Earl will be laid to rest (under his Chevy Bowtie), at 9 a.m. Wednesday, March 13, 2013, at Everrest Cemetery in Logansport, Ind.
