On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Edward Michael McElroy, loving dad, husband, son and brother, passed away unexpectedly at the age of 61 in his home in San Diego, California. Eddie was born on April 22,1959, in Providence, Rhode Island, to Edward Thomas and Catherine Jane (Caniff) McElroy. He attended high school at La Salle Academy in Providence, graduating in 1977. He received his bachelor's degree in International Studies from Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, in 1981 and received his Law degree (JD) from the Southern Methodist School of Law (SMU) in Dallas, Texas, in 1985. He married Yonghong Ying, the love of his life, in 2004 in Madison, Wisconsin. They began their family together living in Western Springs, Illinois then moved to San Diego, California in 2006, where they currently reside. Eddie had a long successful career as an attorney. Early in his career he worked for Ernst & Young in Chicago, Waage Law Firm in San Diego and most recently practiced as an Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA), and Immigration Attorney at McElroy Law Group, APC since its formation in 2009. Eddie was a devoted husband and father. If you asked him, his greatest accomplishment wasn’t his career, it was being a father. He loved his children and was a regular presence at all of their sporting events and school activities. He was passionate about the kid’s lacrosse and field hockey teams, travelling extensively to various tournaments with them across the country. He took great pride in their achievements and was dedicated to his family.

Eddie is beloved by many aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews too numerous to list, but each of whom were very special to him. He is preceded in death by his father, Edward Thomas (2001); sister, Kathleen Mary (1986); paternal grandparents Edward P. McElroy (1961) and Madeline McElroy (1997); and maternal grandparents John Caniff (1992) and Mara Black Caniff (2003).
