To my old friend. You will be missed by many. From our riding days to our wrestling days. Now you may ride forever.

I graduated with Elton. We shared a love of motorcycles. I remember Elton as being a fearless and talented rider. He used to ride his BSA Hornet to the Des Moines drag strip. Once there, he would take two new spark plugs out of his pocket, change them out with the old plugs, and he was ready to race. There was another biker there, who had a souped up Harley Sportster. Elton always beat the guy, no matter what the poor fellow did to make his bike faster. Rest in peace, Elton.

BARBARA & children; Elton, (the name I knew him by),was in the class of 66′ with my brother, Dennis. They were crazy kids! I especially remember when he and my brother lived in a bad part of Design Moines, in a very bad house. That lasted a very short time because they were always making lots of noise with their motorcycles! Carol and I as still friends to this day. Now we need to spend more time together. My brother Dennis and I send our deepest sympathy to all the family,and hope the happy times will out weigh some of the grief.
