Condolences to Shirley and the family from Ivor's fellow firefighters at TriCommunity VFD. It has been an absolute pleasure knowing Ivor and working with him over the years. I especially enjoyed his quiet wit and his sea stories. He will be missed.

My favorite memory of Mr. Elliker is when he came on a Girl Scout camping trip and taught all of us the constellations.

Rest In Peace with love and my deepest sympathies to the family
