Earl Chandler

Earl Chandler, head mechanic in the grounds and transportation department, died November 18, 2004.

Earl began working at Skidmore in 1968 and retired in 1990. His co-workers remember him for his willingness to help anyone who asked, especially with automobile repairs. Before Skidmore, he served in the US Army in Germany and received several medals.

He was survived by wife Elizabeth, also a Skidmore retiree, as well as by four daughters, 11 grandchildren, an uncle, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
