I was saddened to hear of Ed's passing. Heartfelt condolences to the family and particularly Phil and Liz. I didn't really know Ed, though I often ran into him at the HP Rec. Center, where he was a force on the court (he held his own with us "kids"). Again, condolences.

It is with a heavy heart to hear the passing of such a good guy that was always around my childhood . Ed will always be remembered as such an amazing family man who loved his family and his close circle of friends. We spent so many holidays, birthdays while living on Eastwood together. Ed was the toughest skinniest in your face kind of man that would beat you on the court and then do it again the next day. Will never forget the days at Multiplex balling with him and his shots from way outside that always seemed to go in when needed. My parents Lois and Richard sure were lucky to have him by their side for so many memorable times...We love all the Elin's, thinking of all of you wishing we were beside you. Scott Rosen

Though Ed ("Woodie), and his brother Robert ("Bobbie) left New Jersey (Maplewood) after their father Herbert Elins' untimely death from multiple sclerosis when they were very young, our grandparents, Philip and Sarah Elins of Newark, NJ, kept his memory very much alive to me and our other first cousin in NJ, Michael Shusteroff. Ed's father Herbert was the brother of my mother, Dorothy Elins Ellend.

In more recent years, Ed and I had an ongoing email correspondence, and he and Ann visited me in NYC several years ago. I know that he was an extraordinary, intelligent, and loving individual. I offer my sincere heartfelt condolences to Ann and the family. Should any of you be in the NYC area in the future, I would love to meet and visit with you. I can be reached at or by phone at 914.381.5992 or 914.646.6404(cell).

Our father's were like brothers for so many years. When I think of Ed I think of Ann, his one and only. Ed talked about his children all the time. He was so very proud of all of them. His grandchildren were his pride and joy.
One of my most vivid memories is when my dad was teaching me to ride a bike in the neighborhood and Ed was outside rooting me on. I remember his competitive streak also. When I worked at Multiplex many years ago I'd have a glimpse of Ed playing basketball. Let's just say that he played hard and he played to win..every time.

I grew up hearing about the Elins because we were like family. my mom and Ann have always been best friends and they have been there for eachother for every thing.

I love all of you and I am sending hugs and all of my love to you.

Love, Lesli Rosen

Ed is mench of menches ! He is the definition of Salt of the Earth. I knew Laura previously and started playing basketball with Ed at the Multiplex where the Bulls used to practice. Found out what an amazing Jewish father and family man Ed was. He is a role model of mine. Ed and I fought to the death with honor to beat the Bears in pick up games. He always competed with class. Love that man ♥️🙌🌈
