Earl Gene Salyers of Hazel Green, KY, passed away Wednesday, May 15, 2019 in Williamstown, KY, at the age of 63 years, 4 months, and 16 days. He was born Thursday, December 29, 1955, at Adele, KY, son of the late Kash & Millie Lindon Salyers.

Earl was a simple man, who enjoyed and loved the simple things in life. He liked nothing more than being with his family, and he showed this by visiting with them often. He knew well the roads that led to Lima and Tennessee, and all the ones in between. He loved traveling, making special memories on trips to Florida and California. Earl especially loved four-wheeling, spending many beautiful days on trails in the hills he loved with family he loved even more.

Earl was a general laborer working on farms. He was a Christian and a member of the Fritz Church of God. He was known throughout the community for his kind and generous nature, and he faithfully helped care for his mother for many years. He gave many a ride to neighbors, and friends, coming to the aid of any that called. He was always willing to help, and will be sadly missed by all his family and friends.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by four brothers and one sister, George Salyers, Melvin Salyers, Jim Salyers, Donald Salyers, and Lula “Blue” Gibson.

He is survived by five brothers and one sister, Leo & Vivian Salyers, Bill & Lisa Salyers all of Lima, OH, Raymond “P.J.” Salyers of Williamstown, KY, Drexel Salyers, John Salyers, both of Hazel Green, KY, and Margie & Vernon Elam of Cannel City, KY; and a host of nieces and nephews.

Funeral service 11 a.m., Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the Potter Funeral Home, with Bro. Chuck Conley & Bro. Dallas Patrick officiating. Burial to follow in the Salyers Family Cemetery, Hwy 134, Adele, KY. Visitation 6 p.m., Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Potter Funeral Home.

Pallbearers: Chris Elam, Jack Elam, Jr. Elam, Donald "Spider" Salyers, Raymond "Fatty" Salyers, Jason Oney, Joesph Conley, and Bill Salyers.

My heartfelt condolences to the Salyers Family. Earl was always smiling and a kind and friendly guy, to me. May he Rest In Peace and be reunited with his lovely Mother, again in Heaven.

Even though Earl was 63, he was still that 14 year old boy who lived next door to my granny and we rode the school bus together. Earl and I have shared a friendship since we were kids, I always love my Earl Gene. There will never be another like him. RIP my dear friend.
