Elwood proudly served his country in the United States Army during WWII. Prior to retirement, he was a welder with Central Ohio Welding. He was a faithful member of the Pataskala Church of Christ. He loved his family, church family, country music, repairing lawn mowers and his garden.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Candace and the Country Lane Gardens staff for the care, love and compassion they provided to our dad. He was loved by so many wherever he went. He was constantly smiling, joking and would break into a song for the staff when they’d least expected it. He had a wonderful disposition and attitude through his surgeries and nursing care and he showed God’s word and love by his example.
