I knew Elroy from early on when i was a kid and worked with him at Reiss Coal from '73 thru his retirement. He was truly an asset to our company as he built and fostered many relationships that helped our business grow. Elroy always had a smile and loved to laugh and tell a good story. Although we did not see each other after Joan passed I thought of him often and his name would come up from time to time in conversation. Elroy was a wonderful man who married a beautiful woman. Am certain he is with Joan and the lord. May he rest in peace. Bill Reiss

Having Elroy as a sponsor/Godfather has been an honor. I have so many happy memories Including childhood “chicken parties”, youth group and National Youth Gathering events ( where he became “pop skinny” along with his sidekick “ma Joan”), to cribbage gatherings and bowling leagues as an an adult. His beautiful heart and big smile will definitely leave a hole, but I know he is dancing with Jesus. May God surrounds you all with so much love and laughter when you swap stories. And the hugs are waiting when we can gather again. Love you all.

Sorry for the loss of Elroy, He was a wonderful man. Even though I only knew him for a short time, he always laughed and was kind to all. He was a wonderful friend to my mother, Carole. She has many memories of their time together. Prayers for your family.

I remember meeting your Dad when he would come to Sheboygan to visit his brother Jerry. Jerry and I worked together at Maple Lanes. Your Dad impressed me because of his ever present smile and warm personality. I am sure you will miss him but just keep all the memories you have and talk about him often. Sorry for your loss.

My sympathies to Mark, Pam and Paul and your families. Your Dad was a very special man and will truly be missed. Always a smile, a joke and a great laugh. Our neighborhood was very blessed, as kids we all had multiple parents looking out for us. They were there to cheer us on, give us a hug, advice and a chewing out if we needed it. Hugs to all of you. Your Dad and Mom will always be in your hearts and ours as well.
