Our dedicated and loving husband, father, grandfather, and friend was born August 20, 1960, and returned home to his Heavenly Father on July 8, 2023. Earl tragically lost his life while completing a bucket list trip in the beautiful Montana mountains. Born in Salt Lake City, UT to Earl Lavere Cline and Lorna May Andersen on August 20,1960. Graduated from Brighton High School and the University of Utah with a BS in Business and Finance and served an LDS mission in Missouri. Married to Janet Mae Cline April 29, 2006, and sealed for all eternity in the Jordan River Temple on February 17, 2023.
Earl was a passionate and successful entrepreneur and a well-loved Real Estate Broker. He served in many different roles throughout his professional career, and most recently was a partner and owner in Monument Real Estate Capital. Earl was known as a mentor in the real estate community and was excited to share the wealth of knowledge he had with anyone who he encountered. He is described as a kind and generous person whose smile lit up any room he walked into. Earl was a loving son and brother; he was the oldest of eight and cared very deeply for his parents and siblings.
Earl reunited with Janet later in life and loved the adventures they went on together; Janet joined him in marriage and welcomed his seven children with open arms. Earl loved his sweetheart Janet and will be waiting patiently for their sweet reunion. Earl's greatest joy in life was being a father and grandfather. He was fiercely devoted and protective of his family and was proud of his children and each of their accomplishments. When Earl was not out adventuring on his motorcycle you could find him spending time with his family. He told his children often that having grandkids was the best part of being a parent. Earl spent many evenings in the stadiums of the University of Utah sports teams and would attend rain or shine as long as he was wearing his heated motorcycle gear.
Earl leaves behind a legacy and wealth of knowledge to all who knew him that is unmatched. Earl is survived in death by his loving wife Janet Mae Cline, his seven children Alexis (Ben), Robert, Christopher, Joshua (Mandy), Ciera, Erika, and Daniel, seven grandchildren Tatyana, Tamara, Tayla, Trace, William, Wesley, and Adalyn, and a great granddaughter, his loving mother Lorna Mae Cline and seven siblings. Earl is preceded in death by his father Earl Lavere Cline.
Hunter Thompson said “Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride.”
We will deeply miss Earl, his smile, kindness, generosity and his sometimes-irreverent humor and we know that he enjoyed every minute of the ride while he was with us.
