Earl C. Quant, 62

Earl C. Quant, age 62, of Chisago City, passed away unexpectedly July 10, 2009. 

Earl was born January 17, 1947, in Hastings to Edmund and Viola (Donndelinger) Quant. He grew up in Hastings and after school, he had a lot of adventures, but his heart was always in Hastings. He loved his job driving that big truck, and put on thousands of miles over the years. He was the kind of guy that played jokes on people to see them smile or laugh. He enjoyed and excelled at woodworking and remodeling. If you ever needed help, Earl would be there. Most of all, Earl loved being around his family and friends, who meant so much to him. 

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Carol; and one nephew. 

Earl is survived by his companion, Bonnie Laurents; daughter, Tiffany; son, Douglas; grandchildren, Alanna, Dylan, Chayton, Zachary, Tammi, and Staci; sister, Sharon (Ben) Moes; brother, Glen (Sally) Quant; five nieces and nephews; seven great-nieces and nephews; Bonnie's children and mother, Chris (Erin) Laurents and Elsie Peters. 

The funeral service, with Fr. James Perkl officiating, will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, June 17, 2009, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church, 2035 W. 15th St., Hastings. Visitation at the church (west entrance) will be held from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday and one hour prior to the service on Friday. Memorials are preferred. The pallbearers are John Moes, Jacqueline Moes, Bill Moes, Tammy Quant, Tom Quant, and David Donndelinger.
