CASA GRANDE — Earl Bridges, 87, a longtime area resident, died peacefully in Tucson on July 19, 2019.
Mr. Bridges was born on Nov. 20, 1931, in Hereford, Texas. A well-known horseman and cowboy, he enjoyed a good cup of black coffee and was a good hand with a rope or a wrench.

Survivors include a son and daughter, Earl W. Bridges of Casa Grande and Sheri Cummings of Tucson, and six grandchildren.
Memorial service at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 10, at First Baptist Church of Stanfield.
