What a sweet soul. I always loved working with Elwood as his groundman back in the late '60's. Such a good even temperament and cheerful humorous man. Rest in peace sir and may God grant your family peace in knowing you are with our Lord.

I was very saddened to hear that Elwood passed away. I was a neighbor of his when I was a young boy. He was a big part of my life growing up during a really bad time in my life. Thank you Elwood for everything you did for me
