Obituary of Earl Cauley
Patrick Earl Cauley II, age 65 of St. Petersburg, Florida passed away December 17, 2021.
Earl grew up in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He moved to the Irish Hills his senior year of high school and graduated from Onsted High School. Right out of high school, he was employed with Ford Motor Company. He worked at Ford’s for 31 ½ years before retiring in 2005. Shortly after retirement, he and Vicki became snow birds in St. Petersburg, Florida. It didn’t take long for Earl to realize it was his own personal paradise. He loved the hot weather and being outside in the sun all year round. Although, he and Vicki lived in Florida, they both traveled back to Michigan for the summers, getting to enjoy time with all of their family who lived there. Earl was a loving, caring family man and spent most of his time doing outdoor activities with them. His outgoing and humorous personality will be remembered by all who knew him.
He is survived by his loving wife, Vicki, and his five children Dan, Jamie (Conrad) Miller, Andy (Kelli), Teresa (Marco), and Mark; his grandchildren Josh and Hannah; Tyler, Trevor, Natalie, Tanner, Victoria, TJ, and Colton; Zoey, Ethan, and Isabella; Chloe and Savannah; his brothers and sisters Diane (Danny) Bragg, Elizabeth (Tedd) Bergeron, Matthew (Lesa) Cauley, Frederick (Kim) Cauley, Madeline Valdez, Michele (Steve) Schaller, Ernie Cauley; Dave (Karen) Ely, Doug Ely, Steve Ely as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.
