  1. Elam will be greatly missed. I would see him at Warren’s Store on occasion.

    I am very sorry he has passed. I recall he and my Dad having a good time playing ball years ago. The family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. Vickie, Van and family

    I just saw this in the paper. I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with your dad when he was employed at the dealership F.E. Watkins and Sadler Auto.He was always kind and never a dull moment as he always had something going. He loved you girls and his family. I will be keeping you all in prayer as loss is never easy. Sincere Sympathy
