Eardley was born in Pigotts, Antigua where he grew up with his beloved sister, Mymin (Anderson) Davis, who sadly passed away in 2011. He attended the prestigious Antigua Grammar School, graduated with his B.A. from the University of London, and earned his M.A., B.Ed., and Ph.D. from The University of Calgary. Eardley was an educator in institutions in Southern Alberta, notably The University of Calgary, Athabasca University, and Bow Valley College. He was one of the founders of the Arusha Centre in Calgary. The Anglican Church was the locus of his deeply felt spiritual life, in both Pigotts and Calgary. To his many students and friends he was a respected mentor, stimulating new thought and giving of his time unstintingly.
