Our condolences go out to his family and friends. It’s so sad to see a familiar voice silenced.
Some of the quotes I’m seeing on Twitter:
“Master writer Earl McRae of the Sun died this evening. Great writer and a great guy. We will all miss him,” Mike Therien SUN VP “Earl McRae could make you laugh, cry and fume in three consecutive columns. At his best, he had a rare gift.”
RIP Earl McRae
Very sad news about Earl McRae. A fine man, a fine friend and a fine writer. He was one of the good ones, and I will miss him.
@MarkBonokoski: Nobody could tell a story better than Earl McRae. He could talk as well as he could write. Earl, Rest easy.”
