So sorry to hear the passing of Elwyn, as a youth I was always at their house, with Elwyn and Lyla treating me as family. Elwyn taught me how to do a wrist shot in hockey, and was always kind and a role model for me. My deepest condolences to Lyla, Dennis, Steve and Susan for your loss. Unfortunately I was out of the province during the visitation, but my thought are with you during this tough time. Elwyn enjoyed a long rich life, with a great family.
