    I worked with Elwyn at B.O.C.E.S. back in the late 80’s. He was one of my most favorite people there. I liked to tease him in good friend and he would get red and smile. I left to move to Chicago. When I did,we had a big luncheon at a restaurant, I asked specially to have Elwyn to sit right next to me. I never saw him after that but still think of him as a very nice, handsome, easy going guy. May he rest in peace.
