Timothy Scott Earl

Aug. 1, 1967 – Oct. 27, 2021

Timothy Scott Earl joined his father and grandparents in the afterlife Oct. 27, 2021.  Tim passed suddenly in his home in Basin, Wyo.

Tim was born Aug. 1, 1967, in King City, Calif., the oldest of three children born to Leslie G. Earl and Jerri J. Robb. He had one younger sister, Sheila and a younger brother, Curt. Tim moved to Osakis, Minn., as a young child where he was raised by his grandparents on the family farm. Tim remained in Osakis, graduating from Osakis High School. After graduation, Tim enlisted into the United States Marine Corp. He served six years in the Corp, with extreme participation in Desert Storm. After leaving the Corp, Tim returned to Osakis before moving to South Dakota and finally setting down roots in Basin, Wyo.

After moving back home to the family farm he began his career as a truck driver. It was not uncommon for Tim to travel with his road companion, which was his cat at the time. Tim loved cats and even though he never had any human kids, he had a lot of cats throughout his life. They often went on the road with him. For a short period of time, Tim left the trucking world to join his father and brother in the tough world of rough necking. His time there was short lived before returning to the highway. The last company he rode for was Lost Horse Trucking out of Powell. His bosses were his road family. 

Tim never married during his life, although he loved his immediate family and helped them out whenever he was able. He had the generous, kind heart of a giant child. He collected all kinds of things like gaming systems, anime, to mind-challenging puzzles. Tim enjoyed showing off his cool toys to his nieces and nephews. Tim was also a strong believer in his Second Amendment rights. Tim was a proud Marine and was ready at a moment’s notice if something was hit the fan. He was a survivalist, big reader and collector of the finer things from the weapons world. 

Tim joined his father, grandparents, cousin and great-niece and original road companion Fuzy up in the big sky. Tim left behind his sister Sheila and her children and his brother Curt, sister-in-law Nikki and their children. 


"He parked his truck now

His engine has stopped,

And those who loved him

Their hearts have dropped.

He traveled the country 

With a smile of great pride

Now he drives the streets of Heaven 

On the truckers last ride."
