In his earlier years he loved to spend time with his son, Larry Shryock. They would go all over the country showing sheep and cattle. It was a wonderful way to be able to have quality time with Larry. He went on to win the World Team Pinning. He was especially grateful for his good friends, such as Rusty Coker. Rusty has been like family to Ernest since they were boys. Rusty was Ernest’s right hand man on the farm. They were a dream team working together.
His passion was raising cattle, farming, and watching his son show their cattle
Whenever Ernest wasn’t working, he chose to spend his time visiting with friends and family and watching old western films. Ernest was a very humble man. He was a firm believer in God, his country, honor, courage, and most importantly love.

Oh gosh, Earl, that smile of yours, in the early morning on the bus going to school. A smile from a portrait. Yes, the smile, but the needle-toe cowboy boots added much. You looked at me, a first or second grader, knowing I was in awe.

Earl and his family were our closest neighbors as we were growing up and we always enjoyed going over to their house.
We enjoyed going out to gather eggs with Earl as he would play "CATCH' with them on the way back to the house. You had to be on your toes!
Earl's folk's were great and always good to us and Earl graduated with my brother. We will all miss his smiling face in the community.

Earl was a good friend. We enjoyed many a laugh, good stories, and many fine breakfasts and lunches in Morrison and Stillwater. I will miss him.
