Mr. Earl Dean Pressley was born on February 17, 1933 in Union County, NC, a son of the late Harvey C. Pressley and Flonnie Belle Tomberlin Pressley.Earl was never afraid to push himself outside of his comfort zone. Working as a Maintenance Supervisor for Stone Container, he traveled to Chicago for training and always cherished the knowledge gained from life’s experiences. A very intelligent man, there was nothing Earl could not accomplish if he applied himself. He was great with his hands, loved to build and was able to fix anything. Earl was the father of three daughters and instilled the importance of independence and capability in each of them. He will be remembered as a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather who appreciated a good laugh and always had a joke for anyone he crossed paths with.
Those left to carry on Earl’s memory include his daughter, Cindi Walters; his daughter, Karen Hurt (Bruce); his daughter, Beth Treadaway; eight grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, Earl was preceded in death by his wife of 57 years, Betty Jo Baker Pressley; his sister, Helen Poole; his brother, Jesse Pressley; his brother, Robert Pressley; and his sister, Virginia Hucks.
