Earle Roper remembered today

November 28, 2012

For Ronnie O’Kelley and others, this is a day to remember Earle Roper, who became a legend in the business of car-selling in Seneca. Six Mile born, Roper died Sunday at 81 years old. A celebration of his life was planned this morning at the Brown-Oglesby Funeral Home. Eight years ago Roper and his son-in-law, Mike Hudson, gave O’Kelley his start in the car business. O’Kelley says it has been good career for him, strengthened by much of what he learned from Roper during eight years of working for him. In all, Roper owned and operated Roper Auto Sales for 48 years. He was one of the first businessmen to take advantage of what then was a brand-new by-pass away from the downtown. Many others would later follow.
