I also knew him as a relative, married to my cousin Betty Nichols Clay. Through family members yesterday I learned of his passing, at age 93, on April 11, 2019. Betty had died last summer. We'll miss them both -- a wonderful loving couple.
In October 2017 I enjoyed an afternoon visit with Earl and Betty in their home on Nichols Street. We had a delightful time sharing stories and laughing over past events.
Here is a link to Earl's obituary:
Here's a photo from 10 years ago, when I and other relatives (from Idaho and New Hampshire) were visiting with Earl, left, and Betty, right, at their Danvers home:
