Earl was born on October 10, 1956 to the late Earl and Iris Persip in Pittsfield, MA. A life-long Pittsfield resident, Earl was educated in Pittsfield Schools and showed an early interest in automobiles.
Earl began working in the automotive industry at a very young age, continuing on to work for himself in multiple small locations in Pittsfield.
Earl cherished time spent with his family. Nothing brought him more happiness than joyous gatherings with his tight-knit extended family, especially the annual family reunion.
Earl loved classic cars and was always on the hunt for the next great find. He spent his free time attending car shows, fishing and boating. He enjoyed watching sports and developed an affinity for western movies later in life, much to the amusement of his family. Earl was a generous person, and friends and family could always depend on him for support.
