I was truly blessed to have known Mr Cahoon my entire life. He was the finest gentleman I have ever known. My thoughts and prayers will be with the family during this difficult time of mourning but rest assured he is now in a much better place and is reunited with his beloved wife, daughter, and others. God bless you all.

My husband, Steve, and I moved to Chesapeake 3 years ago. We met Earl shortly thereafter as he lived across the street from us. We grew very fond of him and loved hearing his stories about life on Indian Creek Road back when he and Bernice built their home and raised their family. We will dearly miss his laugh and engaging spirit. It was amazing to see him puttering about the yard and driving his tractor. His joy must be great at being reunited with his love in heaven. Our deepest condolences to all and God bless.

Earl was one of a kind. He enjoyed life, loved his wife and children. He was a person with alot of love to give and would help a total stranger if they needed it. His smile would light up a room. Earl you will be truly missed, but I know you are in heaven celebrating with Bernice and your daughter. God bless this family. 🙏✝️
