  • I became friends with Elton and Gary as they railfanned the P&W Railroad in Valley Falls in Cumberland, RI and then our relationship got very tight. Elton and Gary were both like A Father and Brother to me. They took me in when my own family didn’t care about me at all. We had great times together and After Gary died me and Elton Remained very close friends. He would call me every 1 to 2 weeks and ask I’m going to the Cape or to Palmer or to see lighthouses etc wondering if you would like to come along. I will greatly miss you Elton not just for the trips but for the love and caring you and your Son have given me throughout the years. We have lost a Great Friend A Father A Grandfather A brother. We all miss you Elton and know you are looking down all of us here and saying I love you All.

  • Todd, Kim and the boys.  We are so sorry to hear of your father’s/grandfather’s passing.  We know you will continue his legacy going forward.  As the Greeks say, May his Memory be Eternal.  

  • I’m so sorry. Uncle Elton was such a great person. We have so many wonderful memories of him as he would come to all the holiday parties, birthdays and gatherings. He always joked and laughed with us. He would tease me and ask if I had made enough mashed potatoes because one year at thanksgiving, I made so much we could have fed an army. I will miss him dearly. I hope he is with Grandma, Aunt Gail, Gary and Rob.
