Harry (Ray) ELDER
Born February 18, 1924 in Collier, West Virginia, passed away March 4, 2002 after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. He graduated from Roosevelt High School '42, the University of Washington, and was an alumnus of Phi Kappa Sigma fraternity. A U.S. Navy veteran of W.W. II, he loved his family, fishing, gardening bee keeping and a good game of bridge. Ray is survived by his wife of 53 years Opal; daughters Laura Lee Elder of Redmond, Sue (Dave) Schultz of Edmonds; son Jeff (Jodi) Elder of Bothell; and grandchildren Josh & Jessica Elder, Erik & Andrea Schultz. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
At his request there will be no service. A Celebration of his Life will be held at a later date.
