  1. My condolences to the family. I never had the privilege to meet him but I do know his daughter. She always spoke highly of him. Sending prayers for the family.

  2. Dear family, my prayers are with you at this time! Daddy and I were just talking about Elvin on Sunday! I have so many fond memories of Elvin and his brother, Lonnie. When we were young children, Elvin and Lonnie lived in the “little house” at our grandmothers house! When we went for our summer two week visits to our grandparents home, Elvin and Lonnie played a game with my cousin, Johnny and I. Every day Johnny and I went across the street to the little store and bought candies and gum of all sorts. When Elvin and Lonnie came home from work, they bought our candies in our make believe store which was in the wash house. We then took that money and the next day started the entire process all over! I’ll never forget those days and have thought of them so many times during the years! I wanted you to know how much Our Uncle Elvin meant to us as young children and was never forgotten!

  3. I have wonderful memories of Uncle Elvin. I remember visiting my grandmother, Verna Harrison and he and his brother Lonnie were always around. They would go coon hunting and fishing. During the work week, they would come home and eat lunch with us. They would always have fun things to tell us. On the weekends we would all sit around the dinner table listening to A&M sports of some kind on the radio. Life was simple then, but very enjoyable. Uncle Elvin will be missed by many here on earth, but has been welcomed by many friends and relatives in heaven!
