I never had the pleasure of meeting Elwyn himself but I feel like I know him from all I have heard through the years - a gentle, witty man who loved the company of family, friends and of course, Izzy. I do know that he raised a wonderful, loving and devoted (and also witty!) daughter in Faith. He knew what a special legacy he left behind in her and had thousands of reasons to be proud. My condolences to Faith and all of the family and the town of Bridgeport for your loss.
