When we opened Prosperity Drug Co in 2006, Mr. Elon was one of the first persons to come in every morning for coffee. This was the beginning of our friendship and also of the coffee club which continues active today. We certainly enjoyed the many years his health permitted his presence here at the store each morning.
Sincere sympathy,
John & Becky Pugh

I am sorry to hear of your loss. May you find comfort in the resurrection promise at John 5:28,29 that reads; "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." The Bible gives us hope that one day our dead loved ones will be brought back to life.
#12 Sheriff Lee Foster 2018-08-16 07:33
Our family extends our deep sorrow on the passing of this fine man from our lives. He always had a kind word and a smile. I know this, he was proud of his family and he loved golf. We apologize that we will not be able to pay our respects in person due to extenuating circumstances, but please know we are thinking of you and holding you up in though and prayer. He is at Peace and has found Dick Foster and they are playing a round of golf. Lee, Carol, Joseph, Amelia and Jennylee
#11 John B. Lindsay 2018-08-16 06:49
For many years at both at Maxwell Brothers & later at Lindsay Furniture I had the honor of working and learning from Elon, he always taught by example the proper way to deal with people. Elon was a perfect southern gentleman and an example to us all. He was much more than an employee, Elon was a good friend who is missed.
May God Bless Each of You,
Johnny Lindsay
#10 Lynn Wessinger 2018-08-16 06:24
