We honor the life of Eddie Elbaum, as we have had many great conversations over the years. He was welcome in our home, as a friend to our late mother Lillian Rovner and to the Rovner family. We came to know him beyond being a loyal member of the JWV. We respected his vast knowledge and can see why he was a great teacher.

We will keep great memories of Eddie and hope that the Elbaum family can only smile when the subject of Eddie comes up going forward. Thanks Eddie for being you.

The man who always wore a smile and had a joke to tell. We looked forward to seeing him every year at the annual Marshall Faculty and Staff Reunion held on Columbus Day.

The family has been blessed to have had the presence of this giant for guidance.
