  • To Vivian, Greg, and family; MY sincere sympathy to you all on the passing of Elven. It has been a number of years since we worked together, but he was always a straight shooter. Doug Virtue - Posted by: Doug Virtue (Co-worker) on: Jan 14, 2023

  • My condolences go out to Vivian and Greg on the passing of El. Alway thought his name was Al. Although they moved away from Buttercup Avenue when I was very young, the family remained close friends and we would say hi to each other and talked, whenever we would rarely cross paths. They even had a cottage at Grand Beach across the street from us before the government had to expropriate them along with two other cottages because of land erosion next to the lake. That had to be late 1960’s or early 70’s. El(Al) always had a smile on him that I remember. Take care Vivian and Greg. - Posted by: Walter (Junior) Mazepa (Old time neighbour and friend ) on: Jan 14, 2023
