Major Earl D. Uhler, Jr. (Ret), Warrensburg, Missouri, passed away at Western Missouri Medical Center early in the morning on December 9, 2017. Earl had been an active and vibrant resident of the wonderful Warrensburg Veterans Home in Warrensburg for the past 18 months.
Earl loved the people and town of Warrensburg, Missouri. He often repeated the comment of how lucky and blessed he was to have so many good friends, to live so long, and that he had a great family and wife. One of the very last of America’s greatest generation in Warrensburg, he never met a stranger.
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, --and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of --wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air...
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew --
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.
December 21, 2017 at The First Christian Church, Gay at Holden Street.
11:ooam services by Pastor Jerry Basye, with internment and military honor guard at Sunset Hill Cemetery. Light food after the services in the basement of the church. In lieu of flowers suggested donation to First Christian Church, Missouri Veteran's Home of Warrensburg, or the America Legion Post 131 of War, or the VFW.
Dad passed away at 0325 hours 09 December 2017 ---and always lived on the sunny side of life. It was our privilege and honor to know this man. His big heart just wore out, it did not rust out....love you pops. Thanks to my sister and brother in law's information from the hospital I was able to get here for his last 3,5 hours of life coming in from Romania. Pops held on, one last time, for my arrival. Jill was a dear to rub his forehead and we help his hand. In his last hours he said he lived a great life (as he said his whole life), a lucky life with a great family, wife Janie, daughter Jill and Marv, Margareta, grandkids Chris, Michael, Emily and his friends. He loved Warrensburg and he loved to fly. Thanks to the great staff and musicians at the Veteran's home in Warrensburg, Dr. Hason, and the wonderful night nurses/staff at Western Missouri Medical Center. dad loved singing "if you keep on the sunny side of life." at the Veteran's Home every Friday Happy Hour.

Army Pilots Suffer; Too Much Talent
SHANGHAI, Nov. 21 - The Army All-Star Football squad's first scrimmage yesterday at the Race Course was, in the words of coaches Alex Atty, Hal Ave, and Park Myers, "to have separated the sheep from the lions." After two hours of violent colliding and bouncing by the candidates, however, the triumvirate was no more prepared than previously to select a tentative starting lineup.
Out of some 50 hopefuls, there were at least 30 who appeared lion enough to make the starting lineup in the China Bowl game against the Navy All-Stars at the Canidrome here Dec. 1. As a result the co-coaches have just about decided not to cut the squad and to carry as many prospects as stick it out.
Matters will be complicated though, by the fact that neither Army or Navy expects to have complete uniforms for more than two teams each.
Although none of the soldiers were able to scrimmage more than a few plays apiece, some made particularly vivid impressions. These included Earl Uhler and Dean Hauserman in the backfield, Dave Cunningham, end, and Charles Borde, tackle.
Uhler, running from left half carried off tackle or around end with the velocity of a bullet. He didn't slow up, either, when husky tacklers loomed up before him.
Hauserman, 200-pound fullback, used skill as well as power in advancing the ball. Several times he went places after cutting away from or hitting and spinning off the secondaries.
Cunningham used to play for little Ouachita College in Arkansas while Borde performed for the Fort Riley eleven last season.
Among those who have been prominent in the Navy workouts are Frank Ruggieri, 210-pound guard from Purdue, and little Johnny Biddle, halfback from Brownsville, Pa. In addition to having been one of the best football players in the Big Ten in 1942, Ruggieri was runner-up for the National Collegiate AA heavyweight wrestling title. Biddle, who hasn't gone to college yet, has been displaying speed and other abilities.
