Earl Leroy Throop, Sr.

July 22, 1944 - June 20, 2018

Earl Leroy Throop, Sr., 73, of Springfield, died at 7:45pm, Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at Memorial Medical Center. He was born July 22, 1944 to Roy F. and Helen L. (McKinney) Throop. He married Pearl Marie Brammer on December 28, 1963 and she survives.

Survivors also include one daughter, Tammy (Brian) Patton of Springfield; one son, Earl (Jenny) Throop, Jr. of Springfield and eleven grandchildren.

Earl started tree work at a young age working for his father’s business. They became partners and Earl eventually bought the business in the early 70’s. With his wife, he dedicated his life in building a company that would be respected by all. He succeeded in that quest. Throop & Son Tree Service is Springfield’s oldest tree service going on its 90th year and counting. He always wanted to build relationships and not customers. Everyone “loved Earl”. His legacy will survive through Earl Jr. and Tammy.

He is also survived by four sisters, Pat Sutherd, Jodie (Ed) Walsh, Terri (Mike) Trainer, and Brenda Throop; three brothers, Roy (Jackie) Throop, Jr., John (Theresa) Throop and Robert Throop; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents and two sisters, Ruthy Rossiter and Sharon Poggemiller.
