  • I worked at National Typewriter for a few years back in the 80's and got to know Elton a little while I was there. He was a particularly good hearted soul and was quite formidable in stature. Very much a gentle giant I remember thinking, he was truly one of the most even keel sort of people you could ever hope to meet. He was good at what he did and always ensured to say a warm hello to whoever might be passing by. Elton never had a bad word to say about anybody and despite his somewhat quiet nature it was always a good idea to have a chat with him as you were sure to walk away knowing you'd spoken to an (as I said before), a particularly good hearted soul. Never forgot you Elton. I was very blessed to have met you mate and I'm sure all who worked with you at National Typewriter and indeed elsewhere would agree. Howard Craig. Sydney, Australia. - Posted by: Howard Craig (Friend) on: Sep 25, 2021
