So sad to hear this news, condolences & prayers to all the family. I have such wonderful memories over the years of Harvelyn & Elbie., watching the boys grow up & seeing what a loving family they were & how hard Elbie worked providing for his family! He was a quiet man but always ready with a smile & a hello & how are you. He will be missed by his family & all his friends, but he’s with his beloved Harvelyn & all his family that has gone on before him. But we will see him again! God Bless all of you.

I worked for Elba about eight years he was a great man to work for. .He was hard to get off his loader all day moving wood with great skill A few times I needed money and he would ask how much while writing a check. Never asked when will you pay it back. When my wife Faye died I needed money for the funeral. Elba wrote me a $2500 check no questions asked but I paid him back in about a week.He will be missed by many.
