Lilian Jackson Braun (June 20, 1913 – June 4, 2011[1]) was an American writer well known for her light-hearted series of The Cat Who... mystery novels. The Cat Who books center on the life of former newspaper reporter, James Qwilleran, and his two Siamese cats, Koko (short for Kao K'o Kung) and Yum Yum, in the fictitious small town of Pickax located in Moose County "400 miles north of everywhere." Although never formally stated in her books, the towns, counties, and lifestyles described in the series are generally accepted to be modeled after Bad Axe, Michigan, where Braun resided with her husband until the mid-1980s. (Wikipedia)

Earl had a world view built on his experiences. As an Army soldier, he served in France during WWII as a supply specialist. Earl had the ability to tell a story like no one else. He met the love of his life, Lillian Jackson Braun while in Detroit. They were made for each other. He supported her in her writing career and was “The Husband Who” to whom she dedicated all her books. They moved from Detroit to Bad Axe, MI on the shore of Lake Huron and then the Outer Banks where they lived for several years. In the early 70’s, they relocated to Tryon where they both lived out their days. (McFarland Funeral Chapel Obituary)
