have a memory or condolence to add?


October 23, 2019

I met Elia as a agent working for Allaince Rx, I was his quality coach and he was one of our first hires on site. Eli and I shared alot of conversations around the Marvel universe and his beautiful son. He was an interesting personality filled with funny moments and as i remember card tricks. I can still remember his voice on the call as he serviced many of our members. He took pride in his work and always did his best to achieve goal - it hurts my heart that he has left us so young and so soon, but his mark has not been forgotten and will always live on through his family and his son.
Eli you will be missed, but never forgotten and im sure you would probably say "I love you 3000" - my prayers to your family and dearest friends

I'm so sorry to hear about Elia. Living so far away, we only met a few times in person but we spent MANY hours on the phone and chatting back and forth on-line. The 1st time he met my kids was during Christmas a few years ago and he took to them like he'd known them forever. He taught them several games that they still play to this day.

They were very sad when I told them that Uncle Elia had passed away the other day. We are all heartbroken for his friends and family.

I know that he cared so much for Max and was a wonderful father to him. Even though he's young, we know that he'll always remember the love that his dad had for him.

While I haven't seen Eli since we were children, I read all these beautiful messages from his loved ones and I know he continued to grow into a person who was all the things I remember and admired - sensitive, caring, concerned, warm, giving, loving. I am shocked and deeply saddened by his passing, your tragic loss, Max's loss and the world's loss - such kind souls are a rarity. I share in your tears and send you my love and prayers.

May Eli's memory be a blessing and inspiration for all those who were fortunate enough to cross his crossed.

I shed some tears tonight when I learned of Eli’s passing. Eli is, to me, in my forever memories, always a smiling and kind soul. I didn’t have the easiest go of things when I was in high school, but Eli always made me feel welcome amongst the many who did not. He made me laugh even on some of my hardest days. I remember seeing Eli in a trench coat (that I hated so much but totally made me laugh)... passing me by in the hallway, always with a smile to brighten my day. As us DHS kids grew into adults, we reconnected on FB and I always enjoyed Eli’s funny posts. The funny ones usually made me smile and laugh. The others, more serious, were often times spot on. Eli, a sweet and kind classmate, a devoted father to his children, and a good friend to his friends. That is how I will remember Eli. I will miss the posts, and I will remember in my forever memories Eli’s kindness.

My heart-felt condolences to Eli’s family and close friends. Eli will always be in our hearts.

Elia was such a gentle, kind soul, and I am grateful I had the chance to know him. I’ll always think of him when I hear Blister in the Sun (or pretty much any great 90’s karaoke song), and remember the many nights we spent at karaoke and concerts. He was a friend, and though I hadn’t seen him in years, I loved seeing his pictures with Max, as he was obviously a devoted father. I am heartbroken for his family and friends. He will be missed greatly.

Dear Heniek and Gabrysia,
We are absolutely stunned after having just received an email from Wanda K. informing us about the passing of your son Eli.
With your move from Canada to the States many years ago, we did not get to know Eli well enough to share our memories of him. We do wish, however, to offer you our condolences and expressions of sympathy during this difficult time in your lives.

I have known Elia since he was a toddler. He and his family lived across the street from me in Toronto. I was so close with Sharon, and Elia was always around. We have kept in touch for many years on Facebook and I just spoke to him last Friday. He sent me a beautiful memory of my dad when he passed away in December. I am in complete shock and have not stopped thinking about Elia and his son Max. May Max grow up to know what a loving and devoted father he had and cherish the many pictures and videos that so fortunately were taken. My deepest condolences to the whole family.

Dear Flicker Family. There are no words to express the sorrow of losing the son, brother and father that Elia was. I remember him coming to our house across the street from you on Donnamora all those years ago. He was only 3 or 4 years old. Your pain must be riveting and I extend my sincerest condolences to all of you for your ultimate loss.
