Earl Jolley, beloved husband, father, and grandfather, died peacefully at home on Christmas morning surrounded by friends and family. He was born in Elyria April 20, 1943 and was a lifelong resident of Lorain County. After graduating college, Earl worked at E. M. Service, a family business established by his grandfather in 1918, before retiring in 2013. He enjoyed bluegrass music, playing the banjo, reading, and amateur radio, often combining these activities with camping. One of his favorite pastimes was bringing live bluegrass music to local nursing homes playing with the West Virginia Cut-ups. By God’s grace he was saved through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

He is survived by his wife Janis of 54 years, sons Jared (Cristina), David (Lisa) and daughter Lauren (Jason), sisters Cheryl (Michael), and Diane (Robert), as well as six grandsons.
