Mrs Emberton, Patricia, Pam and Paul Eagle, may the Lord be with you in the passing of your husband and father. I was honored to work with Sargent Emberton at the Tompkinsville, Kentucky National Guard Unit. He was both professional and a joy to work beside. He was also a true friend and will be missed by me and my family. God Bless,

William R. Copas, Major, US Army, Retired.

We give our deepest condolences to Mr. Eagle’s family. We were his neighbors. He was a very nice man. He brought us fruits from his garden and helped us cut our grass from time to time. He was so thoughtful and generous. We will miss having him as a neighbor and seeing him outside on his riding lawnmower checking on the deer feeders. May he Rest In Peace.
