Well, I did find one Earl Copley, but I don't know his middle name. Earl Copley is the son of Lawrence Copley who is the son of Ira Judson Copley. Earl was born in Northern Michigan. His parents were married in 1931 and they had 9 children, so he could have been born in the 1930s or 40s. Do you have any more info on him? Let me know. Thanks!
