Earle Wesley Herrick, painter, missionary and veteran, was born in Smiths Falls, Ontario, Canada, the eldest son of Walter “Ed” Herrick, born in Leicester, England, and Jessie May Evoy, born in Whitebread, Ontario, Canada. Earle’s great-great grandfather, Matthew (Mc)Evoy, was a native of Ireland who settled in the Ottowa Valley in 1819 on land granted him by the Crown. Earle served in WWII, in the Navy, and he was wounded while in Europe. After returning home, he lived for a number of years in Toronto, where his parents lie at rest. The father of six children, Earle was always a proud Canadian who instilled that same love of country in his family. He awaits the resurrection in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, his home in recent years. “I love you a bushel and a peck.”
